WIMBLEDON, England — Quick reactions are a hallmark of being a professional tennis player and Jodie Burrage showed the Wimbledon crowd she could respond to adversity quickly.
The British player noticed a ballboy who was feeling faint on the sidelines during her match so she rushed over to make sure he was OK.
She first gave him a sports drink, then some nutritional gel before a spectator handed over a bag of candy.
Burrage says “just tried to get him some sugar, gave him a Gatorade and a gel."
The match was stopped for about 10 minutes until the boy was helped off court.
Burrage lost to Lesia Tsurenko 6-2, 6-3.
