Tennis: Now With Added Serb-Bosnian Violence

You know what's missing from the Australian Open? Lame chair-throwing with just a hint of genocide, that's what. ↵ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵ ↵

↵What you're looking at there are Serbian and Bosnian tennis fans throwing chairs at each other after Novak Djokovic defeated Amer Delic at the Aussie Open, reminding you that a) tennis hooligans exist, and b) they're almost always from the Balkans for some reason. A girl sustained minor injuries in the incident, three extremely intelligent and rational people are going to be charged in the altercation, and we're all reminded of an ugly civil war and subsequent genocide from the last decade despite being on the other side of the planet at a friendly tennis match. Multitasking! ↵

↵(Ed. Note: There was also a similar incident two days ago between Serbian and Croatian fans.) ↵
