Just when you think the match is over, someone presses the wrong button on match point. During the second round of the Bratislava Open, an ATP Challenger, Elliot Benchetrit and Adam Pavlasek got more than what they bargained for when the sprinkler system was accidentally unleashed.

Perhaps the sprinkler guy thought the match was over or someone was just tired of tennis that day, but water came shooting out, soaking the court, sending the umpire into a frenzy attempting to turn off the system. Despite the interruption, Pavalsek finished off match point and moved on to the third round before losing to Andrej Martin.

The Bratislava Open seems to be a hotbed for weirdness this year.


On Thursday, a Tom Jones concert was happening near center court (or a very enthusiastic fan put their music too loud) during a third-round match between Martin Klizan and Sumit Nagal.
