Apparently there’s nothing more coveted in sports than a stinky, used towel.In the fourth round of the French Open on Monday, Svetlana Kuznetsova beat Lucie Safarova 6-3, 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals. Nothing much to see there, other than a standard tennis match.
Afterwards, Svetlana decides to toss some of her gear to the fans… including a sweaty green towel. Two teens and an adult male are all nearby, and guess who won’t let go?
If you thought tennis was all about decorum and good behavior, you’re generally right. Apparently nobody told that guy in his quest for something that normally ends up in a laundry pile.
