Fortunately, the lad was all right, smiling as he left the court. He spent the rest of the match in a photographer’s pit. Perhaps because he was rattled, or perhaps because he was a No. 26 seed playing a No. 2 seed, Dzumhur lost in five sets to Zverev. But the ballboy was fine, and in the end, that’s good news.
