The Funny Thing Is He’s The Star Hurdler On His Track Team At School

Poor kid. Just trying to make a name for himself on the ball boy circuit and this has to happen. During the match between Andy Murray and Ernests Gulbis, the overenthusiastic lad went after an errant ball and and as he got close to the advertising on the side of the court, he decided to take a leap and got upended. The rest is klutzy comedy gold.

I don’t know, maybe these kids are put under way too much pressure to be expected to perform in the white-hot spotlight of the U.S. Open. On the other hand, some ball boys seem to have no trouble getting acclimated to their surroundings – like this little scamp.
