There was a hairy situation at the US Open on Tuesday when two tennis fans in the Arthur Ashe Stadium stands gave one another a haircut while Nick Kyrgios and Karen Khachanov played their quarterfinal.

They had clippers and the sort of cape a barber usually uses to keep a customer clean.

Soon enough, social media users were excited about how a YouTuber known for his pranks had pulled this one off.

Tournament security removed the two men from the match.

US Tennis Association spokesman Brendan McIntyre said:  “When someone saw it, security went to the two individuals.

“They were escorted out of their seats and then off the grounds for disruption of play.”

He added: “There’s a first time for anything.”
