One judge was served with a tennis ball to the face during the fourth round match at Wimbledon 2012 on Monday between Mardy Fish and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Mardy Fish served the ball at 118 mph which went out of the box and hit the female judge square in the eye. The French player immediately rushed to her side to ensure she was ok.

Do you want a chair? Fish asked the woman, Fox Sports reported.

The woman waved him away adding that her eyes are watering. She was then escorted off the court by an umpire.

Surprisingly, the judge still made the call despite being hit in the face at 118 mph.
