来自捷克的伊里维斯对阵德国的托米 · 哈斯时,他注意到一个鬣蜥。

The large lizard seemed to enjoy his view from the top of the scoreboard at courtside.(4)

Vesely asked the umpire to stop play and try to remove the iguana.(5)

The umpire told Vesely he would not stop the match unless the iguana ran onto the playing surface.(6)

He said “If it’s like that, on the scoreboard, I don’t think it’s going to bother you, Jiri.”(7)

Vesely disagreed.(8)

The umpire said: “forget about it, it’s not a dangerous animal.”(9)
The umpire said:"忘掉它,它不是危险的动物。"

The iguana did become a distraction, after all.(14)

People who work at the tennis stadium tried to catch the iguana by the tail, and by throwing a towel over it, but that did not work.(15)

The iguana ran across the court to the other side, and climbed onto the scoreboard.(16)

“It’s scampering everywhere,” said the commentator. “You don’t expect to see this!” he added.(17)
"它蹦蹦跳跳无处不在"评论员说到。他补充说:"你不希望看到这个 !"。

Everyone kept laughing and cheering. The iguana was finally captured and taken outside the stadium.(18)
