Roger Federer gets rushed by a fan on the court after competing in the first day of the 2015 French Open on Sunday (May 24) at Roland Garros in Paris, France.
The 33-year-old tennis player was about to leave the court when a young fan rushed down and tried to take a selfie with him. Roger looked surprised to see no security guards trying to intervene.
“I’m not happy about it. Obviously not one second I’m happy about it,” Roger said (via the Associated Press). “It happened yesterday in the practice, too. I think it’s true for all players that you have to feel safe when we play, feel safe on the courts. It shouldn’t happen too often. It’s happened twice in two days and also in 2009 during the final. I think people should react more quickly. First, it should never happen.”
Roger says that he has received an apology from tournament director Gilbert Ysern.
