Novak Djokovic Fan Is Tragically Robbed of Her Chance to Fondle His Shirt

So much for tennis fans being polite. Earlier today, Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal in an epic match to win the Australian Open, which lasted nearly 6 hours—the longest Grand Slam singles final in history. He decided to celebrate by throwing one of his extra shirts up to a fan in the stands, but it didn't quite go as planned. He launched the shirt in the direction of one girl, but another girl reached out and snatched it. A most heart-breaking theft—though whatever twinges of guilt the robber may feel will probably be quickly erased by rubbing the shirt all over her face.

That's definitely a grown woman who snatched the shirt away from that girl. For shame. I was on a school trip in college and we went to a professional hockey game in the Czech Republic. They were launching T-shirts at the crowd. This super douchey guy (long story) who finagled his way on the trip at the last moment ripped a T-shirt out of a child's hands. Luckily, we all guilted him into giving it back to the kid, but the poor child (probably 8 years old) seemed traumatized by this 21-year-old American victoriously snatching his Czech hockey T-shirt.
