The US Open semi-final between Coco Gauff and Karolína Muchová was interrupted by climate protesters early in the second set, with one of the protesters glueing their feet to the floor of the stands at Arthur Ashe stadium. Gauff was a set up and holding serve to open the second when a disturbance broke out in the upper reaches of the stadium and shouting disrupted play. As the players looked into the stands, security staff went into the section around the disturbance. More than a dozen law enforcement officers arrived on the scene and three protesters were removed. Another, who had been handcuffed by police but was affixed to the floor, caused further delay to the resumption of the match as medics attempted to extricate the protester safely
