An Australian Open Tennis Star Stopped Play To Save An Insect

Sinner stopped play in the third set Monday against Denis Shapovalov of Canada to tend to what the Australian Open announcer said was a moth that landed on the court. Sinner carefully maneuvered it on to his racket and walked it over to drop off it by the chair umpire. “Put it in quarantine,” one fan joked, according to the announcer.

Sinner lost in a five-set marathon but won over fans in the stands and on Twitter for his regard for the tiny creature. There were a few jokes as well. (No word on how the moth fared.)
