Spectator Ejected from US Open After Shouting Nazi Slogan at German Player

HeadlineSep 08, 2023

In other news from the US Open, an audience member was thrown out of the stadium on Monday after he chanted “Deutschland über alles,” a phrase associated with Hitler and Nazism, during a match with German player Alexander Zverev. Zverev informed the chair umpire, which led to security ejecting the fan as the crowd applauded. Zverev later said, “As a German, I’m not proud of that part of history, and it’s not OK to do that.”
