It’s pretty common to hear tennis players grunt and groan like PornHub wannabes during tough rallies – in fact it’s why most people turn up to Maria Sharapova’s matches – but for once it was the real thing that stopped play during an ATP Challenger Tour contest last month.
American duo Frances Tiafoe and Mitchell Krueger were battling away in the second set at the Sarasota Open when Tiafoe stopped because of some, ahem, erotic noises. At first, people thought it was someone’s phone – but as it continued, it became apparent it wasn’t in the stadium at all –it was just two people bonking away in a nearby apartment. “It can’t be that good!’” Tiafoe joked to the crowd at one point, while stifling an erection.
