Squirrel briefly interrupts doubles


NEW YORK -- A furry invader briefly interrupted a third-round women’s doubles match Sunday at the U.S. Open.

In the third game between Casey Dellacqua and Yaroslava Shvedova and Jelena Jankovic and Aleksandra Krunic, a squirrel scurried onto the court. Laughing, the players tried to shoo it away, but the visitor couldn’t seem to find the exit.

A ball girl finally chased the squirrel into the stands. Dellacqua and Shvedova, who are seeded fourth, went on to win 2-6, 7-5, 7-5.
