Security shut that down quickly. Nadal went on to win his record eighth French Open title in straight sets. He is 59-1 at Roland Garros.

The man had “Kids Rights” written on his body. There are also unconfirmed reports the man was possibly protesting the recent marriage equality passage in France: Liberté, Égalité, Beyoncé!

Given that weird protest moment, a reminder that Monica Seles was stabbed on court 20 yrs ago last month. Crazy stuff.

Here’s video of today’s interruption:
