good to hear that the kid was OK!!
I am not sure about Wimbledon, but I've never seen/heard that any stuff on court is allowed to drink water. But usually the time spent on court is not greater than 45 minutes without break, so even hot temperature is not dangerous (it's often irritating, though).
But I was surprised when I read on www.wimbledon.org:
"The usual routine is 2 hours on, 1 hour off. This may be altered in extreme conditions." (ballboys). That's quite long.
Glad he's ok.
