An iguana interrupted a professional tennis match at the Miami Open, perching atop a scoreboard and then scurrying across the court. The reptile showed up at Court 1 midway through the final set of Jiri Vesely’s 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5 victory over Tommy Haas on Wednesday, delaying play for several minutes.
The players tried to continue with their match, but action was halted as attempts were made to remove the iguana. Haas then wandered over with a cellphone and snapped a selfie with the critter.
Finally, the unexpected guest climbed down the scoreboard and ran across the court before winding up on top of another scoreboard. Then someone used a towel to grab the animal by the tail and carried him away.
