Venus And Serena See Victory And A Bare Bottom

Saturday, January 24, 2009

During the second round of their Australian Open doubles match, American sisters Venus and Serena Williams got a little more than they bargained for. During one of the changeovers, a "gentleman" clothed only in a t-shirt streaked out onto the court and danced around for roughly a minute much to the hilarity of Venus Williams. The surprised look on her face followed by laughter was priceless. Serena gave the guy the side eye and occasionally peeked at him.

Continuing to laugh at what she had seen, Serena said in an interview, "I just thought, my eyes, my innocent eyes."

"First, I saw him jump over and then I noticed he didn't have underwear on," Williams said after her third-round singles victory over China's Peng Shuai. "I thought, 'OK, I must be seeing things.'

"He ran out on the court. I was thinking, 'I hope he doesn't come,' because he was pretty close to me and V. I was like, 'I hope he doesn't come, he's too close.' Then I thought, 'This is crazy.' Doesn't really happen too much."

On why the man was allowed to be on the court for as long as he was, Australian Open officials stated, "The focus of the on-court security team is always on player protection. They are instructed not to chase offenders as their focus at all times must remain on the players. The on-court actions of the security personnel reflected this focus on player protection."

After the rump shaker left the court, the sisters went on the do what they came to do and defeated Japan's Ayumi Morita and Germany's Martina Muller 6-3, 6-3.
