Accidentally hitting a ballgirl is never good. How Alexander Bublik reacted to doing so on Tuesday showed a touch of class.

The Kazakh turned a tough situation into the nicest moment of the match after hitting his 17th ace on match point in his 6-2, 7-6(5) first-round victory against Albert Ramos-Vinolas at the Hamburg European Open. The 23-year-old rushed to the other side of the court to check on the ballgirl. Upon learning she was not seriously hurt, Bublik spoke to her for a moment and offered a match ball and a fist bump as a token of gratitude for her efforts.

Bublik will continue his run in Germany on Wednesday when he plays #NextGenATP Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime. This will be their second ATP Head2Head meeting. Felix won their first battle at last yearā€™s Rolex Shanghai Masters.
