A ball girl appeared to faint during Taylor Fritz’s match against Sebastian Korda at the Monte Carlo Masters on Thursday. The incident occurred during the closing stages of the contest under the blistering sun in Monaco as the girl in question collapsed to the floor before eventually rising to her feet and walking to leave the court.
She was quickly swarmed by a number of people and stayed down for almost three minutes but was eventually able to walk off with two medics before the match resumed at the Monte Carlo Country Club. Korda was directly in front of the ball girl when she fell to the ground and was spotted with a concerned look on his face as she was treated during the brief stoppage that followed.
The girl was applauded by those in attendance as she was helped to her feet before leaving the court shortly before the penultimate game of the second set between Fritz and Korda. The former went on to secure a straight-sets victory to book his place in the quarter-finals of this year’s tournament at the expense of Korda, who is also Fritz’s doubles partner.
