Bizarre protest at the Laver Cup: During the tennis match between Tsitsipas and Schwartzman, a young man runs onto the court and sets his arm on fire.
Shocking images at the Laver Cup in London: At the Europe vs. World tennis match, a young man walked onto the court during the singles match between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman, sat down and set his own arm on fire.
With the bizarre action, the man apparently wanted to protest against the use of private jets in Great Britain. At least that’s what the imprint on his T-shirt suggests: “End UK Private Jets”.
Just seconds later, security forces led the climate activist away and kicked out the flames that had spread to the court at the London Arena.
The Greek Tsitsipas then easily defeated the Argentinian Diego Schwartzman 6: 2, 6: 1. Before the night session (from 7 p.m.) Europe leads 2-0 against Team World. The final match in the career of tennis icon Roger Federer is expected from 9:30 p.m. The Swiss competes in doubles with Rafael Nadal against the Americans Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe.
