Ball Boy Makes Amazing Catch at the Australian Open (Video)

It's not every day that a ball boy makes almost as much news than the tennis players he's working for. But this ball boy at the Australian Open made an amazing catch during the Federer/Nadal semifinal tennis match.

Nadal ended up winning the match in four sets 6-7, 6-2, 7-2, 6-4, setting himself up as officially past his rival Federer. But one of the matches highlights came when Federer hit a first serve out, which Nadal hit back. Federer then hit the ball, with a fair bit of velocity off to the side of the court. That's when the ball boy quickly made a one-handed catch in the air and the crowd erupted in applause.
