The footage of this is quite funny...pity they can't get his name right.
PERILS OF THE WIMBLEDON SPECTATOR
By Damon Wake, PA
Normally a spot of sunburn and the effects of too many strawberries are the
biggest perils facing Wimbledon spectators, but yesterday one woman discovered
that watching tennis can be a dangerous business.
Sitting in the front row of the stands on Court 3 to watch a boys' doubles
match, she was hit full in the face by the first serve of the match, hit by
17-year-old Australian Mark Verryn.
The woman, who has not been named, was taken away for treatment by St John
Ambulance volunteers, and was later spotted recovering by smoking a cigarette.
Mike Gibbons, from St John Ambulance, said the woman was shaken and bruised,
but after an icepack and a rest was well enough to continue watching the
"It came as a bit of a shock to her, but it wasn't a big problem from her
point of view," he said.
"Smoking a cigarette wouldn't be a treatment we would recommend, but if she
felt comfortable doing that it shows she was all right."
Do you have a link to the footage?
