WATCH: Ball kid gets nailed in face with errant shot

They sure do make them tough in Australia!   Florian Mayer was returning the serve of David Ferrer and it ended up clocking a poor ball kid right in the face.  Ouch!  He took it like a champ though because it what felt like a millisecond he bounced back like it didn't even happen.  I'm gonna guess he has quite the nice shiner this morning though.
