If you're reading this a decade from now, the score of Gilles Muller-Rafael Nadal is probably 1,044-1,043 in the fifth set at 2017's Wimbledon. Before serving while down 11-10, Nadal complained about the sun's reflection coming off of the panels being installed on Court 1. The chair judge seemed confused about what to do, but the crowd was happy to help.

Fans donated scarves in order to cover up the panel, and they earned a thumbs-up from Rafa in the process. Play went on as normal, and then never stopped.
