Video: Ball Boy Collides With Player During French Open

Ball boy collides with tennis player during French Open.

The French Open kicked off earlier this week, and several of the biggest names in the sport were in action, including Serena Williams, who struggled but ended up with a win in her debut.

Not everyone was winning this week, though - especially one of the ball boys.

On Friday morning a ball boy found himself in a precarious situation as he went after loose ball during a match between Damir Dzumhur and Alexander Zverev.

During the match, Dzumhur collided with a ball boy as both ran towards each other with their eyes on the ball.

Check it out.

Luckily the ball boy was able to walk off after the hit.

Clearly this was incidental contact, but Dzumhur ended up with the loss to the No. 2 seeded Zverev in five sets.
