Tennis star Sabine Lisicki was shocked by antique balloons at Thailand Open



Ballkids at tennis matches are often invited to perform the most demanding tasks. They get towels for the players, dry on the playgrounds and, naturally, deliver them serving balls.

But from time to time they make the top drums.

In the past, it involved getting kicking balls moving fast, pitching on the playground, or even knocking the tennis stars themselves.

And sometimes they remove insects from the field – as this should be done for German veteran Sabine Lisicki in the Thai match against Spain's Garbine Muguruze.

It turned out, however, that this kid had different plans than what Lisicki thought.

Ballgirl works, apparently to help Lisickie to remove the affected insect from the playing surface before making a blow that could be proud of WWE Royal Rumble winner Seth Rollins.

And in that process they scared Lisicki who shocked and turned, horrified, before laughing.

Lisicki, former Wimbledon finalist, who was on his return, would lose 6-3 6-4. Still, it is better than the bug is passing because it has lost its life.

Next Muguruza will play another German, Mona Barthel.

DAVIS CUP SETS CULTURAL BLUEPRINT

Davis Cup is the vehicle that drives Australian tennis culture on the road to success, says Lleyton Hewitt.

Hewitt will be a non-playing captain when Australia will host Bosnia and Herzegovina in a cup in Adelaide from Friday.

And he believes that the link gives Australia a chance to establish a cultural plan.

"Davis Cup is a vehicle that will really be able to suppress the culture in which we want to move forward and set standards not only for ourselves but for what our team expects," said Hewitt.

– And that's not just a week's Davis Cupa. We expect these guys to go out and present Australia every week in the year exceptionally well and push each other to fix it.

"To get out and want to compete and want to set it up on the week week, it's not easy to do it."

Hewitt will be the captain of the Australian team minus controversial duo Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomić.

He said that Alex de Minaura, John Millman, Jordon Thompson, John Peers and Alexy Popyrin had the opportunity to push each other to higher altitudes not only in the Davis Cup but also in an individual tour.

"Tennis is a very individual sport, and Australia is one of the hardest countries to become a tennis player because you're not happy to go home (during the season) and you're on the road for a lot of weeks," said Hewitt.

"So, to get these guys together and help each other improve, I think that's something (Tony Roche) Rochey and I really want to see how it progresses.

"It was a breakthrough summer for these guys to report and because they are pushing each other, they want better day to day."
