Mistakes happen, but true Olympians can handle even the worst mishaps with grace and triumph.
Japanese tennis star, Kei Nishikori was matched up against Spanish player Albert Ramos-Vinolas on Saturday when something unimaginable happened: he dropped his racket.
Like the true Olympian he is, Nishikori quickly grabbed his racket, managed to retrieve the ball, and score a point!
Not only did he score the point like a boss, but he did it backhanded! Nishikori went on to win the match against Ramos-Vinolas, but with a play like that, it’s not too surprising.
Watch the amazing recovery HERE and SHARE if this impressed you!
