Novak Djokovic’s French Open quarter-final against Matteo Berrettini was briefly suspended on Wednesday after spectators protested a coronavirus curfew at 11 p.m.

The game was put on hold during the fourth set and fans were scheduled to leave at 10:45 pm local time, but many didn’t and even started chanting “We paid, we will stay”. Some even mocked those who left the Philippe-Chatrier court.

Djokovic was leading 2-1 in sets and leading 3-2 when play was interrupted. At 10:55 p.m. the two players packed their bags and made their way down the tunnel as fans laughed and one shouted “Rip-off!”.

However, within minutes the main stadium was almost completely empty.
