What a night it was at the Australian Open where Rafael Nadal was matched up against American qualifier Michael Mmoh. A woman in the stands — yes, fans are back and many aren’t wearing masks in Australia where COVID is starting to be old news — went OFF on Nadal during the second set of his match against the 23-year-old American.
The woman reportedly screamed, “Hurry up, you OCD f-ck” as Nadal got ready to serve to Mmoh. Then came the middle finger. That led to a security lady coming over to tell the fan it was time to go.
A fan just gave Rafa the finger. Look at his reaction: “what, me? “ 😂 pic.twitter.com/fY3npCNTrn

You guys know that if I’m covering anything from the world of tennis, it has to be some lady middle fingering the world’s No. 2 tennis player and calling him an “OCD f-ck.” I’m literally giggling as I type up this post because it’s such an amazing burn.
The Australian Open is allowed to have up to 50% capacity, and an estimated 21,000 showed up on Day 4. If we’re getting one middle finger lady out of 21,000 fans, that bodes well for the rest of what we’re going to see in 2021. Fans are ready to boil over and yell at these guys like they’ve been yelling at their TVs and their Facebook screens for the last 11 months.
This year is going to be very good for content guys like me. All I ask for are a couple weeks off this year to get in a vacation or two.
