In Monday night's World Team Tennis match between the Philadelphia Freedoms and the New York Sportimes, Australia's Sam Groth was manning the net during mixed doubles when a well-disguised, sharp-angled drop shot from James Blake pulled him wide of the court.

Groth scrambled over and had one option: thread the small space between the ballkid and the net post, and aim the ball down the line into the doubles alley for a winner. He pulled it off. And scared the crap out of that poor ballkid.
