Wimbledon ace takes shot to the nuts from as fans joke ‘new balls please’

A Wimbledon player received a nasty shot to the genitals as viewers joked: ‘New balls, please.’

Paul Inchauspe was competing in the junior boys' doubles final when his opponent, Sebastian Gorzny, whacked the ball right into his manhood. The 18-year-old Frenchman doubled over – as you would expect – as the commentator let out a big: “Owwwww.” Given the distance between the two players and the speed at which the ball was struck, it was near enough impossible for Inchauspe to move out of the way in time.

After receiving the blow, the player tried to walk off the aching pain, while miraculously not falling to the floor in a leap. Fans online cared little about the injury and shared their jokes. One quipped: “new balls please.” Another offered some sound advice: “Don't rub them, count them.” One sympathised: “I'd want someone to put a pillow over my face, just end the suffering.” A last person stated: “Brilliant point winner.”

In fairness, Gorzny immediately put his hand up to apologise after seeing that he had almost sent his opponent to the floor with his strike. As if things were not bad enough, Inchauspe and his partner, Gabriel Debru, went down 7-6 6-3 to Gorzny and Alex Michelsen in the junior boys' doubles final.

Saturday marks the penultimate day of Wimbledon, with Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios facing off in the final tomorrow. Rafa Nadal struggled with an abdomen injury during his quarter-final win over Taylor Fritz and had to pull out of his semifinal clash with Kyrgios. “I made my decision because I believe that I cannot win two matches under these circumstances,” Nadal said.

“I can’t serve at the right speed; I can’t do normal movements. I can’t imagine myself winning two matches like this, and for respect for myself in a way, I don’t want to go out there and not be competitive enough to play at the level I need to play at to achieve my goal.”

The withdrawal means the Aussie will go straight to the final game of the competition in the men’s singles, with a chance of winning his first-ever Grand Slam.
