Cute Ball Girl Removes A Cockroach From The Court At The Aussie Open (Video)

ball girl picks up spiderSome say that a cockroach on the court is good luck, and one just so happened to appear on the court during Lleyton Hewitt’s first round match against Cedrik-Marcel Stebe at the Australian Open.  That would bring him enough luck to reach the fourth round, and eliminate two ranked opponents on the way (Andy Roddick and Milos Raonic), however, he would eventually fall to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

I guess this cute ball girl should have left the cockroach on the court for just a little longer so that Hewitt could have absorbed a few more rounds worth of luck.

On a side note, I’m not sure why she was so embarrassed following the incident.  Most people wouldn’t have even picked the insect up in the first place.  Check it out.

Here is a look at the ball girl, Alison, talking about her run-in with the cockroach on the court.
