Roger Federer against Raphael Nadal has become the tennis match-up of our generation.

So you know that something special must have happened to direct all the attention in the stadium towards something else.

Would you believe it was the ball boy?

During the Australian Open Federer smacked a ball out of play as he got ready to serve.

The cat-like reflexes of the ball boy brought the entire stadium to its feet, and even the superstars had to show him some love.
