Australian Open ball boy catches a very bad bounce
Twelfth-seeded Feliciano Lopez was taking on Adrian Mannarino in the second round of the Australian Open on Thursday when he fired a 121 mph serve that went just long, but found a ball boy in a very fragile spot.
At that kind of blinding speed it is tough to get out of the way, even when a serve is on a line toward a very delicate area.
The ball boy still managed to corral the offending tennis ball before finally dropping to one knee in pain, as Lopez went over to apologize and make sure he was OK.
