The cute video circulating around today is a little boy running onto the court on Monday to give New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony a hug.
Sorry to be the downer on this, but this is a major security breach.
If the kid ran onto the court during play, he could have been seriously hurt, or a player could have been hurt trying to avoid the kid.
It’s been 23 years since Monica Seles was stabbed on the court by a crazed Steffi Graf fan.
You would think tennis would learn from this, and court security would be the top priority.
You would think wrong, if you see what Roger Federer has had to put up with the last two years.
It looks innocent enough. A fan who wants to take a selfie. But before that, a fan forcefully tried to put something on Federer.
And here is another note to the French. Beef up your security, especially this year. We all know what has happened in Paris and Brussels over the past few months. Take it much more seriously than you’ve ever have.
We don’t want another incident.
