Radael Nadal has given his thoughts on the chaotic scenes that saw a spectator escorted out of his second-round Australian Open clash after they attacked the World No.2 in a sensational expletive tirade.

Rod Laver Arena went into meltdown during Nadal’s straight sets victory over Michael Mmoh when a female spectator was booted from the venue late in the second set after appearing to call Nadal a “w–ker” and gave him the finger.

Nadal was all smiles during the “chaos”, as Aussie tennis great John Fitzgerald put it, but during his post-match press conference, poked some light fun at the unruly fan.

“I don’t know, maybe she took too much gin or tequila? I don’t know,” Nadal said to reporters when quizzed over the bizarre scenes.

“But honestly was strange situation, but, yeah, funny at the same time. You know, sometimes there is people for everything around the world.”

“For me it was funny. Honestly, somebody doing the finger to me with, I don’t know the reason, but was — yeah. I was surprised, yes, but at the same time was thinking, Poor girl. Because probably she was drunk or something like this. I don’t know.”

Reports from the stands suggested the woman also yelled out “hurry up you OCD f—” to the Spaniard while he was attempting to serve out the second set.

“A little bit of a disturbance there in the crowd,” Aussie tennis great John Fitzgerald said as the madness unfolded courtside.

“I couldn’t hear the specific language, there was a little bit of ill will between two ladies.

“Well there is one lady that is getting rather animated, she might be asked to leave, actually. I think she’s having a crack at Rafa, I’m not sure why, she’s the first person I’ve seen do that.

“She’s a bit inebriated I think, this is chaos. This is so unnecessary, it’s just one individual that has made a complete goose out of themselves.”

The World No.2 was able to overcome the hiccup and power on to claim the match in straight sets 6-1 6-4 6-2.
