There were plenty of highlights that earned an applause from the crowd during Rafael Nadal's eighth grand slam win over Roger Federer in the Australian Open semifinals. But there was one moment that drew cheers that didn't come from either of the tennis stars. After a missed first serve from Federer, Nadal returned it anyways and the Swiss star lightly swatted it to the side. That's when the ballboy sitting by the net showed off his wide receiver skills, reaching out and snagging the ball with one hand. The play was so good that it even made SportsCenter's Top 10 plays!
