During Australian Open tennis, a player leans against a ballkid and says, “It’s so hard.”

With the Australian Open, the first major tennis tournament of this season, entering its second week, ball-kids have often been at the center of the spotlight in this year’s games. In tennis, a ball-kid is a player who helps transport and deliver balls during games, and is also called a ball boy or a ball person.

During the match between Marta Kostuk (37th, Ukraine) and Elina Avanesyan (74th, Russia) in the third round of the women’s singles in Melbourne, Australia on the 19th, a player who finished a long rally leaned on the Volkid to breathe.

After more than 10 rallies, Kostuk, who ran and received a drop shot falling in front of Avanesian’s net for a long time, was caught on TV broadcast cameras hugging the Volkid next to him and struggling.

Fans in the stands enjoyed the rare scene, and the local TV broadcasting team couldn’t hold back their laughter. Ball boy, who was embarrassed by the sudden hug, appeared in major foreign media photos.

Ultimately, Costuck came from behind to win the match 2-1 (2-66-4 6-4), and advanced to the quarterfinals of the first major singles for the first time in his career. The Volkid of the match had a positive impact on Costuck as a result, but there were also two cases in which it hindered the proceedings of the match.

During the second round of men’s singles match between Karen Khachanov (15th, Russia) and Alexander Kovacevich (101st, USA), Volkid snatched the ball in play. 토토사이트 순위

Khachanov’s strong serve during the second set was hard on Kovacevic, who turned the ball over the net but looked as if it would fall off the line. However, Volkid, who was standing, quickly grabbed the ball before it hit the bottom of the court.

If Volkid hadn’t caught the ball, it would have been Khachanov’s score, but the referee ordered “to put the serve back in accordance with the regulations.” Khachanov then complained to the referee, saying, “Where is such a rule?” and the situation ended when his opponent Kovachevich conceded, “I will admit Khachanov’s score.”

Kovacevic lost the match 1-3 (4-6 3-6 6-4 3-6), but he was applauded for his sportsmanship. A similar scene was seen in men’s doubles.

Volkid ran into the court during the second set of the men’s doubles match between the Linky Hijikata-Jason Kubler (Australia) group and Dominique Köper-Jannick Hanfman (Germany).

Volkid mistook the game for being suspended, came into the court to give the ball and soon headed outside, but the game was eventually suspended, and the play was invalidated at this time.
