John McEnroe and Patrick McEnroe faced each another in an exhibition match in Tanzania recently but it came to a halt, first because of a snake, and then due to rain.

The two brothers played in the Serengeti region of the African nation, which is a protected area comprising the Serengeti National Park. Their match had a dramatic moment as a snake entered the court with John McEnroe leading his brother 7-4.

The match was later abandoned due to rain.

The McEnroe brothers represented Team World during this year’s Laver Cup, with John captaining the side and Patrick being the vice-captain. Team World registered a comprehensive 13-2 win over Team Europe to defend their title at the tournament that took place in Vancouver.

Day 1 saw Ben Shelton, Francisco Cerundolo and Felix Auger-Aliassime beat Arthur Fils, Alejandro Davisovich Fokina and Gael Monfils respectively, while Tommy Paul and Taylor Fritz defeated Fils and Andrey Rublev.

Fritz started Day 2 by beating Rublev before Casper Ruud handed Team Europe their only win of the Laver Cup. Tiafoe beat Hubert Hurkacz before Ben Shelton and Felix Auger-Aliassime beat the Pole and Gael Monfils.

There was only one match on Day 3 as Ben Shelton and Frances Tiafoe triumphed over Hubert Hurkacz and Andrey Rublev to seal victory for Team World.

The side had beaten Team Europe 13-8 in 2022 to win the competition for the very first time.
