Apparently this is what a young Roger Federer used to do for his kicks as a young child.

He still does it occasionally but his high profile persona limits his opportunities these days :(

Seems like it'd be tough to make a perfect seal. Who knows, it coulda taken the dudes in the clip hours to get it just right.

Or if the seal doesn't need to be so precise, then you could use a bike pump with some kinda rubber washer even.

Someone posted a comment on that site that they used to use tennis balls that were cut in half, and just fit the ball over the whole lock to get a better seal.
 
theres this other method i saw on Brainiac (TV show) the other day, the scenario was someone had locked their keys in their car and what they did was ring someone back at home where the spare set of keys was, and it actually worked if the person AT the car pointed the phone through the window at the infra red receiver for the lock, and the person with the spare set of keys pressed the unlock button on the key at their phone (only works with mobiles)

the expert couldn't understand how itworked because it's a radio wave travelling through a sound carrier but it did...

Or use the "Voltron method": Smash the window with a large rock or your fist, I promise it will work. ;)

If you lock your keys in the car or lose them, who's to say that you're gonna have the tennis ball handy? It might be locked in your car with your keys and other stuff.

Plus, how are you gonna fit that ball into your little Prada clutch?
