For some time, Venus Williams had the fastest serve in ladies's tennis — a proven fact that one unfortunate U.S. Open ball boy will most likely bear in mind ceaselessly.
Throughout Williams' match in opposition to Greece's Maria Sakkari on Friday, a light catastrophe occurred. Williams hit a serve that Sakkari could not attain, so the ball bounced and flew proper as much as the ball boy.
Emphasis on the "ball."
He is fortunate it had already bounced, to be trustworthy. Nonetheless, credit score the place credit score is due — this consummate skilled did not even drop the tennis ball!
Congratulations, child. We're very sorry about your public harm.
