Damir Dzumhur, the No. 26 seed at Roland Garros, didn't make many mistakes early in his third-round match against second-seeded Alexander Zverev. The game's highest-ranked Bosnian player won two of the first three sets with fleet feet, creative shotmaking and the requisite stamina needed to succeed on clay.

But there was one misstep that affected Dzumhur more than any error could have—a nasty-looking collision with a ballboy. Both Dzumhur and the ballboy had their eye on the ball, but not on each other:

Thankfully, the accident didn't appear to be serious, with the ballboy giving an apologetic Dzumhur a thumbs up, and the pro returning the favor with an embrace.
