If you've ever played tennis, a lot can happen. Mosquitoes can swarm around you. Moths can hop around on the court during night matches. In Miami, apparently iguanas can wreak havoc and almost ruin a match.

At the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Tournament, that's exactly what happened. Veteran Tommy Haas even snapped this selfie with the iguana thanking the reptile for enjoying some tennis.

The players said they couldn't concentrate but the umpire said they would just have to get over it. Haas ended up losing the match and the iguana was eventually carried away from the court.

But since the match, the iguana has gone viral.
