Fight at US Open!

The 2010 U.S. Open fight video is one of the hottest videos circulating the Web right now. Watch it below!

If the action on the courts at the 2010 U.S. Open isn’t enough for you then check out the action in the stands. During the Novak Djokovic, Philipp Petzschner match, a heated argument began to brew into a fight between three spectators sitting in section 187. After the two parties squabbled back and forth for a little while it seemed for a moment that everything was settled as they began to retake their seats.

The younger of the two men sat down in his end of the row seat, and began to refocus his attention on the match, and that’s when the grey haired fellow saw his opportunity to take a cheap shot, and tried to strangle him (I think in slow motion). Within a split second the young man tackled his attacker into the lower level seats, and that’s when other spectators rushed to break up the brawl. Security arrived shortly after, and in the video we see them listening to the younger dude plead his case. Wow!

According to reports, all three of the tennis hooligans have been banned from attending US Open matches for two years. That will teach them to fight at a classy sporting event like Tennis! Save it for the soccer games ya hooligans!

The guy who recorded the U.S. Open fight yelled the following at security around the 2-minute mark of the video:

“It was the old guy that attacked you though. Hey I got it on video. Don’t worry guy I got you. You were the one who got jumped. I got it on video my friend!”

We clearly see who he thinks is in the wrong.

Who would have thunk a fight at US Open, a forum for gentlemen and women? Watch the U.S. Open fight video below, and tell us who you think is at blame. Punk or old fart?

    Let’s be honest here. The young guy had it coming. He sat down but was still talking shit. I’m assuming he said something awful when he sat down and the old guy had to stand up for himself and the woman. The young guy had it coming. Especially after he pushes the woman afterward. And also he was clearly drunk.

    If you watch the film that was shot sooner the lady went so far as to slap the young guy and security didn’t do it’s job.

    It was definitely the guy in the grey shirts fault! The police should have arrested that scoundrel, picking on senior citizens. What has society come to?

    Its very clear the younger guy in the gray shirt provoked it, all he had to do was shut his mouth but he kept running it. Although we can not hear audio, it seems very likely the younger man was insulting the woman until her husband ( i am assuming) had enough and had to stand up for her.

    The 2 older people clearly are to blame.

    If they were bothered by the young man’s profane language they should have reported him to security. Security would have told him to stop and removed him if he persisted.

    Instead, they ignored common sense and took his verbal antics to an entirely different level by introducing physical violence.

    Oh Wow! way to screw it up, for the players I mean people will remember this match because of this match and not because the way they play or who won, Who did anyway? See what I am talking about

    This video does not show the slap on the young person by the lady. One should see the incident from the beginning. Audio is not there to judge the issue, so one has to rely only on the video. There were persons of three generation involved and the youngest one showed most maturity. He laughed away the slap inflicted on him by the lady. He might have been the agent provocateur, as the reports suggest, but the physical violence on him could have been much more provocative, coming from a lady in full public view. His restraint is only to be appreciated, though he could be condemned on other issues.
