Ouch! Player hits own face with ball
- From the section Tennis
Watch the unfortunate Alexandr Dolgopolov hit the ball against his own face in front of 2,000 people on court three against South African-born British player Kyle Edmund.
The Ukrainian was attempting a half-volley winner to go two games up in the first set, but instead found a rather more painful outcome.
The injury didn't deter Dolgopolov and he rounded off a comfortable straight sets win 7-6 (7-4) 6-1 6-2 as Edmund struggled with a shoulder injury.
