(Newser) – A male streaker burst onto the court for 14 seconds as Venus and Serena Williams played a doubles match today at the Australian Open, Reuters reports. Guards caught the man when he dashed to another court; he was barred from the rest of the tournament. Earlier, an ethnic brawl broke out among Serbian and Bosnian fans, who were punted from the grounds.
