Andy Murray kicks ball, almost hits umpire at Western & Southern Open

MASON, Ohio - Andy Murray was lucky he didn't get penalized. Or disqualified.

Murray kicked a ball and almost hit the umpire during his semifinal match at the Western & Southern Open Saturday.

 

 

The umpire ducked and shook his head at this year's Wimbledon and Olympics champion but let it go.

 

 

This will remind Reds fans of right fielder Paul O'Neill kicking a ball to the infield in 1989 in what turned out to be an incredible - and totally accidental - play. 

Murray's kicked ball didn't appear to hit anyone. Murray went on to take a 6-3, 6-3 win over Milos Raonic.
