An unforgettable Roland Garros: Get out, the spectators refused!

Unforgettable scene at Roland Garros 2021, in the quarterfinal match between Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini, won by the Serb. Fans refused to leave the Philippe Chatrier arena, as required by the anti-Covid protocol, and the organizers had to interrupt the game for more than 20 minutes, in order for things to return to normal, Eurosport.

The match lasted beyond 23:00, so the anti-COVID protocol forced the tournament organizers to send the spectators home. The game was at that time on the edge of the knife (3-2 for the Serb in set 4), Berrettini playing excellently and having an extremely solid service. The fans did not want to follow the protocol and forced their hand on the organizers, remaining in the stands. This led to the situation in which the match was interrupted, so that the fans would finally leave the arena.
I’m shocked and I don’t know what to say. It’s weird and ridiculous, I realize how the players and fans feel“, Said Eurosport specialist Mischa Zverev, while Wilander simply said:”It was an embarrassing situation for everyone. We live in strange times„.
Asked about the questions, Djokovic explained that he is sorry for the fans, who were deprived of the end of a perfect show. However, personally, Nole seems to have been helped by the interruption, returning much more focused and set on what he has to do, from the cabins.
