The second match of the Laver Cup, in which the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas beat the Argentine Diego Schwartzman this Friday, was briefly interrupted after the irruption on the field of a militant who set fire to his arm as a protest against private planes.

Tsitsipas had just won the first set 6-2 and the players were on their team benches when a young man, wearing a t-shirt that read ‘End Private Jets in the UK’, approached the net. He sat in the middle of the court and lit a flammable substance on his arm, but the flames were quickly put out and the young man was evacuated by tournament security.

The referees then verified that the field, where the fire was also set, was in good condition.

The match was able to continue and Tsitsipas won the second set 6-2 to give Europe a 2-0 lead over the rest of the world team.

This match marked the end of the afternoon session at London’s O2 Arena. The matches returned at 13:00 Ecuadorian time with the local idol Andy Murray playing against the Australian Alex de Miñaur. Next, the big moment of the weekend, with Federer playing his last match as a professional. Together with his great rival Nadal, they will face Sock and fellow American Frances Tiafoe, a recent semifinalist at the US Open. (D)
