I don’t know what this guy’s genitals are made of that he can dust himself off so quickly after they were on the receiving end of a Grigor Dimitrov serve that clocked in at 123 MPH, but…good for him. To be fair, the serve bounced and traveled all the way to the back of the court, so it was likely under 100 MPH at the moment of contact, but…still. 

He probably should have been on the lookout here, but it also seems like cruel and unusual punishment that they would force the staff on the court to stand with their hands behind their back. It seems like they’re just tempting fate. Take a look:

He gets back up, seemingly no worse for the wear. How many times does this have to happen before we take the necessary steps and wrap these guys up in bubble wrap prior to sending them out onto the court?
