WATCH: Dimitrov consoles ailing ball boy in Shanghai
The Bulgarian stopped play to console the crying child
Published Oct 12, 2016
Sometimes being a ball boy is a dangerous job. When 100+ mph serves are flying everywhere, accidents are bound to happen. Such a case occurred in Shanghai when Vasek Pospisil accidentally served an out first serve directly into the chest of an innocent ball kid during a critical moment in his 7-5, 7-6 (2) win over Grigor Dimitrov.
Dimitrov lost the match, but he won over some hearts for scrambling to the rescue. The Bulgarian stopped play to console the crying child, before giving him a sweaty wristbands as a gift.
Free tennis memorabilia should really be the cure for every injury.
