Laver Cup protester delays match after setting arm, court on fire
A protester lit the court and his arm on fire during a match at the Laver Cup tennis event Friday,
briefly delaying the start of the second set between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman at the O2 Arena.
The activist, carrying a lighter and wearing a white T-shirt with a message about private jets,
made his way onto the black court and sat down near the net. The person eventually was carried away by security guards.
"It came out of nowhere. ... I never had an incident like this happen on court,"
Tsitsipas, the runner-up at the 2021 French Open, said afterward. "I hope he's all right."
