Why didn’t someone think of this before?

In an exhibition match between Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova at the ASB Classic, dogs served as ball boys.

Three dogs were chosen for the match: Oscar, a bull mastiff, Ted, a border collie and Super Teddy, a mixed breed. Nicknamed “the best ball boys in the world,” the trio drew laughs and cheers as they chased wayward balls on the court.

The two tennis champions didn’t appear to mind being upstaged by the canine crew.
