'It can't be that good!' - Love match interrupts tennis

TENNIS: A Challenger Tour match in Florida was briefly interrupted by two people having sex.

Preparing to serve midway through the second set in his match against fellow American Mitchell Kruger, Frances Tiafoe stopped and looked up with childish glee upon hearing sounds that can only mean one thing.

A woman's loud moaning was echoing across the court, completely distracting both players.

While Tiafoe giggled to himself, Krueger went over to the chair umpire, grabbed a ball and smashed it out of the court to where the scene of passion was playing out.

The love-making continued for a couple of minutes, prompting Tiafoe to yell out: "It can't be that good."


Initially, commentator Mike Cation thought someone in the crowd forgot to turn the volume down when playing a video on their phone.

"Well, that is the most bizarre situation," Cation said on the Challenger Tour live stream. "I don't know how to put this, folks, but somebody's phone is going off in the stands ... and it was an adult video."

But as the moans continued, Cation realised the X-rated romp wasn't playing out on a screen at all. "No, that's not a phone, that's an apartment across the lake," he said. "Oh my God."

Tiafoe was able to put the disturbance behind him and carried on to win the match in straight sets 6-3 6-2.
