Tennis match interrupted by noises believed to be loud sex

A tennis match between Frances Tiafoe and Mitchell Krueger had an unexpectedly X-rated interruption at the Sarasato Open in Florida on 19 April.

As he prepared to serve midway through the second set, Tiafoe stopped and looked around with a childish grin. A women's moan was heard from across the court which distracted both players.

Announcer Mike Cation, who initially thought the disruption was caused by someone playing an adult film on their phone, struggled to find an appropriate way to convey the freaky development.

"Well, that is the most weird situation", Cation said on the Challenger Tour live stream.

Krueger, who was losing, took out his frustration by launching a tennis ball towards the villa.

Around the 1:50 mark in the video the noises get louder and Cation and people at the match realize what's happening. "That is ... that's an apartment across the lake", he said.

Tiafoe was able to put the disturbance behind him and carried on to win the match in straight sets 6-3 6-2.
