While Roger Federer was in a tight first set battle with Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon, his wife, Mirka Federer, was in the player's box rooting on her husband's attempt at an 18th Grand Slam title.

But Mirka isn't just a wife and mom, but a ball girl at times, like this moment during the first set. A ball went into the stands as it occasionally does, and Mirka went for it, snagging it and tossing it back on court.

The box was all smiles at the Mirka throw, but even more so when Roger was able to take that tight opening set 9-7 in a tiebreaker, moving one step closer to that record eighth Wimbledon title.
