And somehow manages to look like a creeper. (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_GWJatwb-WlI/SkKMOBfmA3I/AAAAAAAAJvU/rbM9vIfEBkk/s1600-h/llodra_wimb09_2.jpg)

It sucks that he had to retire, but come on.

Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DChwuklzzro

Michael Llodra almost slammed a ballkid in the ump chair... He floored her!

It's a wonder it doens't happen more often though.

Worst part is people laughing while watching the whole scene.

But hughing her was a nice attitude from him.

Anyone know what did he hurt, he looked like he was limping but I am not sure if it was leg. Since he did not really do much after that.

Haas was great playing with that ball girl after Llodra retired. Haas is a great sport.

He looks more English than French, with those horrible teeth.

That pic looks kind of creepy, but only because of the split second in which it was taken. If you look at the video, it's not creepy. It's sweet.

you gotta admit it was kinda creepy. putting her hat back on her while still sitting in her lap, propping himself up while leaning on her back/shoulder and picking her up up off the ground to hug her.

The ball girl should have jumped out of the way but she just stood there and took the hit. She had plenty of time to move out of the way.

i thought this at first too, but if you look closely...her head turns to follow the ball and she had no idea it was even coming. this is very obvious in the slow motion replay.

Oh WOW! I saw some of this but not the whole clip! I have so much ABSOLUTE respect for this guy now! At least we have definitive proof that there's at least one guy on the tour who still has fun just playing some tennis.

That's a French assault on a British maiden :)

But yes, Haas is a class act.

Thanks for posting this. Good on Haas for giving those ballkids quite a memory. He's truly a class act.

I believe he was holding his side after he tried to serve, and he definitely smacked his hip/chest against the edge of that umpires chair. I'm not sure how serious it'd have been but there was obvious discomfort there, maybe he just didn't want to risk it further I guess?

(ed: just read he cited an abdominal injury when he pulled out)

Tommy is definitely a class act, lovely gesture to hit with the ballkids like that
