Florian Mayer had a disappointing end to his Australian Open campaign with a loss to David Ferrer at the weekend.

But if he was stoic in defeat he still didn't show the poise that an unluckly ballboy had after being smashed by one of his errant returns.

Thankfully the ballboy regained his composure quickly and wasn't hurt by the Mayer backhand.
