Yes, it's like a tennis racket with a net, I've already seen ballboys with this kind of nets.
But I'm not sure, it's just a gues.

These kind of frames with an attached net to them are used every year in Vienna. It is used there since I can think of Vienna tennis and it was always something special compared to the other tournaments where the ballkids hold the balls in their hands.

I have seen them before they use them so they don't really have to bend down for the ball, so they don't hurt there little backs.

I did too :) I'm sure I could come up with a tennis-like game with the nets, though...it would be like that game "nookum" where you try to catch the volleyball and throw it instead of hitting it back.

True, this is a Viennese tennis tradition, makes up for the ugly hall ;)

Yeah it was also used in some small tourney in Spain I believe, I mean, apart from Madrid which is obviously going to use them.

I say this year they should've had male models as ballboys. Damnit.
