VIDEO: Ball Boy Takes Astounding Catch

Being a tennis ball boy (or girl) might look like a right doss, but you’ve got to have gazelle-like reactions. You snooze, you lose.

This was superbly demonstrated yesterday in the Australian Open semi-final between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. After his first serve was called out, Federer batted away Nadal’s return. The ball looked to be heading towards the crowd, until the ball boy standing at the net took a lightening quick catch.

The audience gasped, the commentators purred and Nadal and Federer appeared disappointingly impassive. Which, we guess, is why they’re two of the best players to have picked up a tennis racquet.
