LMFAO...so Bartoli was smacked in the face

At 40-15 in the very first game of her first round doubles match yesterday with partner Saori Obata, Bartoli was smacked in her right eye by a returned tennis ball that forced the French player to retire from the match. But after a little healing time, Bartoli returned to singles action where she's into the semfinals for the second time this year.



OMG....



That must of hurt.

Poor Marion

It happened to Sugiyama last year during a doubles match I think up at net she got hit with the ball in the eye. I think they iced it a bit and her eye was a little red but they continued Kim/Ai won the match too I think

I used to play handball and I was hit in the head by the ball a few times. Believe me, it's not funny at all.

My partner had a detached retina from being hit in the eye with a squash ball; that wasn't so funny, believe me.

Hey guys,

I would never laugh at you if you got the ball on the face.

All the best to Justine Henin-Hardenne!!

I don't think it's too funny - she *could* have had serious eye damage!
