Stefanos Tsitsipas was lucky to escape serious punishment after the Greek star narrowly avoided hitting a ball kid after losing his temper at the Australian Open.

After failing to reach a winner from Jiri Lehecka, the 24-year-old's eyes lit up as the ball bounced off the back wall into his path.

Tsitsipas swung his racquet furiously at the ball and did not notice that a ball kid had begun moved in the same direction in order to collect it. The ball crashed into the wall mere centimetres from the volunteer.

Whoa... Stefanos Tsitsipas came THIS close to hitting a ball kid out of frustration in an incident eerily reminiscent of Novak Djokovic's controversial US Open default.
