Poor Ball Girl asked to catch large bug at Australian Open 2012

Posted by tennisclips on Jan. 21, 2012

An Australian Open ball girl got her fifteen minutes of fame when she reacted most amusingly to the task of clearing a cricket off the playing surface. During a second round match between Australias Lleyton Hewitt and Germanys Cedrik-Marcel Stebe, Stebe halted the match between points and indicated that there was a cricket on the court, just behind his baseline. Stebe, of course, could not be expected to flick his racquet and dispatch with the pest himself, so the poor ball girl had to do it herself. She picked the thing up like a trooper, but couldnt quite keep her composure with the creepy crawly little guy in her hand. Hilarity ensued.
