The incident happened right in the middle of the match between Flavia Pennetta of Italy and Monica Niculescu of Romania, CBS2’s Sonia Rincon reported.
The drone buzzed over the court in Louis Armstrong Stadium at around 8:30 p.m. Thursday before crashing into the seats and breaking.
Luckily the seats were empty and no one was hurt. Play was paused as the NYPD and FDNY investigated, Rincon reported.
