The group’s Twitter account was only created in July of this year and has just 25 followers, with one previous post featuring Kai delivering a recorded message. The post is accompanied with the caption: “Carbon emissions in 2022 are genocide. We’re accelerating towards the cliff of runaway collapse – every second takes us closer to human extinction. And the elites are still flying in private jets.”
Tsitsipas – who had just clinched the first set for Team Europe – was able to continue his match with Schwartzman once the court clean-up operation was complete where he went on to seal a 6-2, 6-1 victory.
Speaking after his win, Tsitsipas said: “It came out of nowhere. I [have] never had an incident like this happen on court so I hope he’s all right. I wanted to proceed with that match without having any minor changes to the court and I wanted to make sure it’s playable, especially that area. There was a big mark over there and I wanted it to be cleaned up in order for me to proceed the way I did before.”
The incident came just hours before 20-time Grand Slam tennis champion Federer is due to appear on court for his farewell appearance in a doubles match alongside great rival Rafael Nadal as the pair face the American duo of Francis Tiafoe and Jack Sock.
