Way to stand your ground, kid.

Florian Mayer's attempt to return a David Ferrer serve at the 2014 Australian Open didn't go as planned. Instead of putting it in play, Mayer's return resulted in the courtside ball boy taking a ball to the face.

To his credit, the ball boy shook it off quickly and acted like nothing happened.

Thanks to the Australian Open for the video and onthegotennis (h/t Bob's Blitz) for the find.
