The player immediately rushed to the aid of the boy after the accident and helped him get back on his feet. He even offered a hug to console him.
One look at the video would tell you that it must have been a painful moment for the ball boy. But being a great sport about it, he gave a thumbs up to the tennis player before being escorted off the court.
Over an hour later, the young boy gave another thumbs up, this time to the cameras, to indicate he was okay.
