Watch An Angry Woman Desecrate The American Flag At A Tennis Match
American Mardy Fish has been playing his best tennis ever of late, but no win stands out more than the one he notched yesterday over Rafa Nadal. Though Nadal hasn't been playing his best of late, he's still Nadal. Any win over him is significant, and when it comes in straight sets, as Fish's 6-3, 6-4 triumph did, it's a major signal to the entire tennis world that a player has taken his game to a new level.
It's also a signal that hey, maybe American tennis has some legs for the first time since Andy Roddick made the Wimbledon final two years ago! One might expect American tennis fans to be glad that one of their own is playing this well with the U.S. Open kicking off later this month, but at least one fan at Fish's match against Nadal - brandishing an American flag, no less - didn't appear quite so thrilled:
The announcing team here brings up a good point: aren't you supposed to...not do that with the flag? Well, sure, you're legally allowed, but...suffice to say that even though this doesn't appear to specifically say "Do not throw the flag to the ground in disgust over failing to get noticed," we feel like it's sort of implied. Hopefully, Fish will do his nation's symbol a bit prouder at Flushing Meadows.
