A ballgirl's dream stint at Wimbledon ended in tears after she found her arm in the way of a 124 mph Milos Raonic serve during his match against Carlos Berlocq in the first round of the famed tournament.
According to reports, the unidentified girl was "quickly replaced as she fought back tears."
“[I felt] bad about it. After that I lost a little bit of focus and also that amazing catch that one [ball boy] had. A lot of baseball teams could have picked him up to stop any home-runners," he told reporters. "Sort of tried to sign a ball and give it to that girl."
The 22-year-old won the match 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 to advance.
No word if the ballgirl will return, but at least in this photo, she looks pretty upset.
