Ball Boy’s Head Nearly Decapitated At Australian Open (Video)

ball boy hit in headDuring a first round match between Roger Federer and Alexander Kudryavtsev at the Australian Open, you’d figure most people would credit Federer with having the “deadlier shot” in this battle.

Not quite.

While Federer was hitting balls with his usual precision, en route to the 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 victory, Kudryavtsev was busy proving that he may not have the accuracy or power of his opponent, but he is still capable of threatening teenage ball boys with his frighteningly inaccurate (or accurate, depending on whether you believe he was attempting to come within inches of the boy’s head) backhand.

Federer can win all the trophies he’d like, but I bet he’s never scared a ball boy quite like Kudrayavtsev’s near-deadly shot did.  Check it out.
