Top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic nearly hit a ballboy in the side of the head with a return of a serve from Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka in Sunday's fourth round Australian Open match.
It appears that the ballboy at the side of the net was able to turn his head at the last second and the ball deflected off the bill on the side of his cap. We're guessing that the ballboy wasn't hit, as he was able to continue his duties completely unphased. Had the ballboy been hit, he probably would have required some medical attention.
Djokovic survived a marathon fifth set to win the match and advance to the Australian Open quarterfinals.
