A tennis match between Frances Tiafoe and Mitchell Krueger had an unexpectedly X-rated interruption at the Sarasato Open in Florida on 19 April.
During the ATP Challenger Tour match, Tiafoe was distracted by the sound of what seemed to be a woman moaning.
Play was briefly halted as the players discovered that the sounds were coming from someone’s sex romp.
At first, the tennis commentator calling the match said someone in the stands was watching an adult video on a phone. “I don’t know how to put this, folks, but somebody’s phone is going off in the stands … and it was an adult video,” he said.
In mock frustration, Tiafoe also shouted, “It can’t be that good!” – an outburst that elicited laughter from the stands. A woman in the stands was also spotted asking her young son to cover his ears.
Minutes later, the commentator said the sounds were coming from a nearby apartment.
Despite the raunchy distraction, Tiafoe won the match in straight sets.
