An Australian Open spectator was kicked out of Rod Laver Arena after making one helluva scene during Rafael Nadal's clash with Michael Mmoh.
The tennis fan was reportedly heard yelling "hurry up you OCD f***" why the Spaniard was preparing to serve.
And when Nadal and the entire crowd picked up on what she was yelling, the spectator gave the world number two an almighty death stare accompanied with a middle finger.
Being the professional that he is, Nadal could only laugh at the rather bizarre incident before encouraging the chair umpire to allow play to continue while the fan was being escorted out by security.
A fan has been BOOTED from the match for unsavoury language and flipping the bird to Rafael Nadal! :boom::joy:

Other spectators inside Rod Laver Arena began cheering and laughing during the initial heckling.
But when the woman in question flipped the bird in Rafa's direction, their mood quickly changed and they began booing and jeering.
She was eventually whisked away by stadium security and play finally resumed as advancing to the next round with a straight sets victory.
When asked about the incident during his post-match interview, Nadal simply said: "Maybe she had too much gin or tequila. I don't know."
"Honestly it was strange situation, but funny at the same time.
"I was surprised, yes, but at the same time was thinking, 'Poor girl', because probably she was drunk or something like this."
And the 34-year-old wasn't the only one left thinking that the woman had consumed a few too many beverages over a long, hot day.

When footage of the moment surfaced on social media, fans immediately assumed that the woman was a little bit - shall we say - inebriated.
But while some social media users saw the funny side of things, others perhaps didn't with many of them describing the woman's actions as "disgraceful" and "embarrassing".
If the woman was genuinely on the sauce, she'll certainly have a sore head this morning - and being on the front page of every newspaper probably won't help with the hangover either.
