Here’s a sentence I never expected to write on a sports blog: The Balkan conflict is now being fought with chairs in Australia.
One girl sustained minor injuries in this barrage of chair-throwing between Serbian and Bosnian fans after Serbia’s Novak Djokovic’s defeated Amer Delic in four sets, and I’m gonna go ahead and assume Delic is Bosnian. And this incident happened just two days after Serbs clashed with Croatian fans in and around Melbourne Park.
The whole notion of people fighting at a tennis match is a little much for me to grasp. Any sport where the P.A. announcer has to ask for quiet doesn’t deserve hooligans.
