Man in Suit Battles Teenager for Female Tennis Player's Towel

When a kid is nearby, an adult will usually let him or her have whatever is thrown into the stands. Rarely do you see a man in a suit battle a boy for a souvenir.

After Svetlana Kuznetsova knocked off Lucie Safarova in the fourth round of the 2014 French Open, she threw some items into the crowd. A towel she tossed just happened to land between a man and a boy.

From there, it was a battle of strength.

Kuznetsova won the 2004 U.S. Open and the 2009 French Open, so the towel is a nice collectible. However, wrestling it away from a boy isn't the best look for a man in a suit.
