Iggy The Iguana Takes Over Miami
Tommy Haas also posted a photo with the now famous “Iggy” the Iguana at the Miami Open. Haas captured the selfie mid-match, after a giant iguana came onto the court, halting play as linesmen scrambled to catch him. (He’s a fast one!)
Linesman Frankie Melendez, who eventually caught the iguana, is the real hero.
