MELBOURNE, Australia – A protester was stopped on court by security during the Australian Open men's final between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray on Sunday night, causing a short delay in play during the second set.
Security guards caught the court invader, who was wearing a white shirt with the message "Australia Open for Refugees," near the baseline during a changeover after the seventh game of the second set. The players were surrounded by security staff while stadium officials took action.
A group of other people who had unfurled a large banner with the same message was escorted out of the Rod Laver Arena.
The match continued after a five-minute delay.
