↵There hasn't been a shortage of madcap moments at this year's Australian Open, from a ball boy causing a 40-minute delay for wetting himself to Andy Roddick's obscenity filled tirade at a chair umpire. ↵

↵Add to that a woman shouting a marriage proposal to Rafael Nadal from the stands during his second-round match, which elicited a sly grin and polite wave from the tennis star. No question that Nadal appreciated her restraint above all, given his experience nearly being hugged and kissed by a court-storming male fan back in September. ↵
