Iggy perched itself on the scoreboard during a match between Tommy Haas and Jiri Vesley, according to Sports Illustrated

Maybe the iguana just wanted a better view of the game? 

Or maybe Iggy wanted a selfie with Haas?

Either way, Iggy wasn’t happy when officials tried to remove it from the court. 

The Iguana thought his new selfie friend, Haas, would let it stay and watch. But, instead, Haas quickly jumped out of the way. 

Eventually officials got the iguana off the court, but Iggy might have won this match.
