SPORTS UPDATE FROM DOWN UNDER

In other offbeat news from the Open, the match between Belgian Christophe Rochus and American Donald Young was stopped for 40 minutes after a ball boy wet his pants on court 10.

"The ball kid peed on himself. It was unfortunate," Young said.

Swing and a miss . . .

Tennis can be so exciting.

This is definitely a more elevated infraction than a foot fault. Feel sorry for the poor kid though. How do you live that one down?

So the kid's pee wasn't "out"?

Dust-Bane, it's called Dust-Bane.

John McEnroe would have wiped the court with him.

Don't you just hate it when you are trying to dry your pants with the blower, and the blower runs out of gas?

There's a Seth Rogen movie script in this somewhere.

This is surely a time more for sympathy than for censure. Will he get it?
Depends.

If the ball boy peed himself, who peed on the woman?

Or did I miss something?

So would that spot on the court be the ball boy's peed-a-terre?
