QUEENS — Things got a bit nutty at the US Open this week when a tiny gray squirrel interrupted a match at the tennis championship.
"Wait please. We have a squirrel," said the match's announcer as the animal scurried about the court for nearly a minute.
Lisicki could hardly contain her amusement during the incident, grinning widely throughout most of the video.
The squirrel eventually disappeared behind a clock — which inspired applause from the audience — and the match resumed.
Lisicki went on to win the match.
The squirrel's appearance was first reported by Gothamist on Thursday.
Tournament officials did not immediately return calls for comment.
