Protester with flare runs onto court during Nadal-Ferrer match at French Open

During a game after several anti same-sex marriage spectators stopped play with a protest in the stands, a man ran out onto the court during the French Open final between Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer. The shirtless man was wearing a white mask and holding a flare. He was promptly tackled by security as Nadal tried to make a beeline from the court. A small fire broke out and smoke filled the court for a couple minutes before play resumed.

The idiot intruding on the Roland Garros court did little to ignite a fire under Ferrer. Nadal went on to win a record eighth French Open title, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-3.
