A woman protesting inaction on climate change attached herself to the net during the Roland Garros semifinal.

The woman, wearing a white t-shirt with the words “We have 1028 days left” attached herself to net and attempted to glue her hand to the net post interrupting play during Casper Ruud’s semifinal win over Marin Cilic.

The protestor invaded the court with Ruud holding a 4-1 third-set lead. The eighth-seeded Ruud defeated Cilic in four sets to make history as the first Norwegian man to reach a Grand Slam singles final.
