After quite a point at the French Open -- 38 strokes over nearly a minute -- France's Richard Gasquet vomited right there on Court Suzanne Lenglen. His opponent, Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov, collapsed with a leg cramp and crawled on his hands and knees to a line judge's chair.
It came 1 hour, 50 minutes into their second-round match Thursday, with Dimitrov serving at 7-5, 5-4, 30-40. Gasquet hit an overhead winner to break serve en route to a 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 victory.
Gasquet blamed his intestinal distress on some fruit, then joked: "The banana is still on Suzanne Lenglen. I was really feeling bad. But he was on the ground. He was even in a worse situation than I was."
