Roger Federer’s first-round match at the 2012 Australian Open was pretty much a snoozer, (7-5, 6-2, 6-2) but there was at least one takeaway. Alexandre Kudryavtsev was in this rally with Federer and decided to go baseline backhand. Only problem was that he was a little late with the shot and it got away from him. Yeah, so there was one of those Aussie Open ball boys standing at the referee stand.
WATCH OUT, HUGH!

Premise of Video: As mentioned, an over-matched Alexandre Kudryavtsev goes backhand and powers through the shot. Hugh is just mere inches from being killed by a tennis ball, the worst possible case of death in Australia. Very embarrassing stuff.
Climax of Video: Hugh doesn’t move an inch. Total boss move from this little kid. Dude just goes about his business and doesn’t flinch.
Conclusion: Can you imagine the ball girl tail that Hugh will pull after this performance? The chicks have to be turned on by such court heroics.
