This year of the US Open is one of the most dramatic ones of the lot. The season witnessed some of the weirdest and most bizarre tennis moments that are worthy of going down in tennis history, from a strong stench of marijuana at Court 17 to stars calling out hecklers quite publicly. This season is surely one of the wildest ones.
In a weird turn of events, during the anticipated match between Jannik Sinner and Alexander Zverev, a heckler said something that did not sit well. Both the players are two of the fiercest competitors this season. Therefore, fans have been waiting for this match for a while, and it was worth it.
As the match was reaching an interesting phase, Zverev was seen leading, but Sinner was dominating the rallies in the fourth set. In such an intense moment, a heckler interrupted the match with an uncalled-for racist comment that triggered fans and officials alike.
Reports suggest, in an attempt to rile up the players, the heckler mentioned something about Adolf Hitler. As soon as the comment was made, officials sprang into action, including Coco Gauff’s consultant, Brad Gilbert. Brad helped the authorities to identify the heckler who made the comment and got him kicked out.
Several fans took to the internet to express their disappointment on the heckler. Many even sympathized with the guy for saying something wrong at the wrong place and at the wrong time. In fact, many people believed that statement was not that big of a deal, and there was no need for the authorities to throw him out.
Regardless of opinion, heckling an athlete or a performer of any kind is not a ‘cool’ way to show your presence. It just makes you seem hankering for attention. As a result, fans should refrain from interfering as it breaks the equilibrium of a performer. Keep following our page for more sports-related content.
