Watch This Barcelona Open Ballboy Faceplant into a Wall (Video)
Even if you watch this video a few times, it’s hard to figure out how this kid manages to go crashing into a wall with such force. He explodes to pick up a few stray balls, then is so eager to get back to his position that he loses control of his faculties and just sort of Eurosteps his way into the wall.

It’s a damn funny sight, but I think the serving player giving a quick check to see what that noise was is probably the high point of the whole thing. He cared enough to pause, but not enough to look or actually see if the kid was ok.
If you’re not going to be a Grand Slam tournament, you might as well send your ballboys crashing into walls for comedy’s sake.
