What would you do if it happen to you? There a video you can check out in the link

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/tennis-busted-racquet/teenager-had-djokovic-shirt-snatched-away-speaks-against-185203397.html

The teenage girl who had Novak Djokovic's shirt stolen from her grasp on Sunday is speaking out against the middle-aged garment thief who grabbed the souvenir.

Melissa Cook, 14, had a front-row seat cheering on Djokovic during his epic victory over Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final. When the world No. 1 finally defeated Nadal after five hours, 53 minutes, Cook managed to get his attention as he was changing clothes. Djokovic walked over to Cook to toss her a spare shirt, but it was grabbed instead by a woman sitting two seats away.

"I started crying because I couldn't believe that something I truly believe he meant for me was taken by someone else," the teenager told Australia's Herald Sun.

Yeah, that was pretty cold of that lady. Like we wrote on Sunday, she was like that guy at a baseball game who fights a little kid for a foul ball. There's nothing wrong with an adult catching something from an athlete. To take it from the hands of a child is unacceptable.

Cook wanted Djokovic's shirt to hang on the "Novak Wall" in her bedroom. From the looks of the video, it looks like the tennis star intended for her to get it.

"I had been yelling out to him the whole match and he had looked up and acknowledged me," she said. "Then at the end he came straight over to my direction and threw the shirt up."

Update: The woman has been identified as mother of three, Yael Rothschild. She's heard Melissa's story and insists she's keeping the shirt, saying that it was fair game for any of the spectators in the first few rows.

"When the shirt was thrown, there would have been 20 excited people, all with their hands out," she told the Herald Sun. "After (it had been) thrown, there would have been 19 disappointed people. Such is life. I am not sure how you can snatch out of the hands (of) someone sitting three seats away from you with a barrier between the seating."

Oh, I don't know. Because your arms are longer? Because you leaned over the railing? Because you put your hands in front of a teenagers and grabbed it first?

That is messed up and even after the lady knows on how hard the girl tried to get the guy to come over and you can also see he was going to her to give her the t-shirt she should give it to the teen and also what kind of adult is this lady? Not a good role model she is and she a mom


Also I like to point out if you look at the video very closely the girl Did have the t-shirt in her hands and the lady did take it out of her hands. It might take a few times to watch to see it but if you can zoom in on it you will see the teen had it 1st.

Thankfully I don't really give a damn about any sports league so that scenario won't happen to me, but if I was an avid sports fan... I would toss that women off the rail, proceed on body slaming that fat bitch, and take that shirt to my Novak Wall... Anywho kudos to the girl for not doing what I might've done, because that would lower the chances for Yael Rothschild to win The Bitch of the Year award

From what I saw the shirt had the angle towards the girl but the woman just grabbed it first. I understand the whole "I'm first kind of attitude" but shame... Just shame. I'm not exactly sure how to explain it correctly.

Because I am a pessimist and I don't really care, two words: immature, selfish.

I think as a professional athlete he probably tries not to show so much favouritism. And if he took it from this woman, what he'd get after is "[Name] takes t-shirt from mother of 3 to give it to a whiny 14 year old instead".
