    Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez competed against American opponent Taylor Fritz on Tuesday in the first round of the prestigious 2019 US Open tournament. A spectacular victory by the Spanish sportsman, however, is not what made the headlines.

    A woman sitting among fans behind Lopez, attempted to record on camera the moment in which the Spanish player changed his wet jersey during the tough match. The female fan did not notice that she was being filmed at this very moment.

    The amusing video instantly went viral on social media, with some netizens suggesting that the fan had no chance to date the Spanish tennis player, because he is in an official and inseparable relationship.

    But a majority of twitter users claimed that the video could be branded as sexist if "that was a man looking at a female tennis player".
