Ball boy collides with player during French Open match


A French Open ball boy appeared to be OK after colliding with a player during a match on Friday.

No. 26 seed Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the ball boy were both trying to catch a dead ball in the middle of Court Philippe Chatrier, the main show court at Roland Garros.

The boy, who was running to the ball falling from above, didn’t see the slower-striding Dzumhur. When they collided, the boy dropped to the red clay and appeared woozy for several seconds.

Dzumhur helped him to his feet. Thirty seconds after the collision, the boy gave Dzumhur a thumbs-up and jogged off the court. He was later seen watching the match from a photographer area.
