Novak Djokovic and Stanislas Wawrinka had just finished their singles in Louis Armstrong Stadium late Wednesday and were still on the court.
Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said Quito, Ecuador resident Damian Proano was awaiting arraignment on Thursday.

Authorities say Proano was grabbed by security and arrested.
