Watch: Eugenie Bouchard falls, hits a seated backhand and wins the point

http://youtu.be/2VNYwgrJxGQ

Eugenie Bouchard kicked off her week at the Portugal Open with a quick introduction to the forgiving (and unforgiving) nature of clay-court tennis.

Early in the second set of her first-round win over Alisa Kleybanova, Bouchard lost her footing behind the baseline and fell down, hit a backhand while seated, got up, ran around and fired a winner. All the while, she can't stop laughing at the preposterousness of it all. Just another day on the clay.
