Jodie Burrage comes to the aid of unwell ball boy in Wimbledon opener as she feeds him Percy Pigs… before British wildcard crashes out to Lesia Tsurenko in straight sets defeat
British wildcard Jodie Burrage has crashed out of Wimbledon following her first-round defeat to Lesia Tsurenko.
Tsurenko eased to victory in just over an hour with a 6-2 6-3 straight sets loss.
Burrage came to the aid of a ball boy who was taken ill during her first-round match with Lesia Tsurenko.
The youngster looked unsteady on his feet in the early part of the second set and the 23-year-old Briton attended to him, offering an energy gel from her bag and a drink.
The crowd also helped out, passing some Percy Pig sweets to her during a five-minute delay.
The ball boy was later treated by paramedics and left in a wheelchair.
