No. 4: Tennis balls
More and more sports leagues have been open to showing the more painful side of being an athlete, as was the case with the Wimbledon TikTok account. During the Wimbledon boys' doubles final, French duo Paul Inchauspe and Gabriel Debru were playing Americans Sebastian Gorzny and Alex Michelsen. At a close rally, Gorzny replied with a heck of a forehand shot that landed right in Inchauspe’s, uhh, tennis balls. “Ow ... ow, ow,” said the BBC commentator. The TikTok labeled the moment the most painful play in the tournament so far, along with the caption, “Yikes.” Kudos to Inchauspe, who walked off the pain and resumed play. The video has reached 1.7 million views.
