A ball boy was hit where no man ever wants to be hit while working a tennis match at The Australian Open. 

The young man was standing behind the player receiving serve and apparently never saw the 122-mile-per-hour serve heading for him.

The poor guy tried his best to play it off, but like most men he was forced to knee to catch his breath. The young ball boy was escorted off the court so that he could recover from the shot.
