Video: Federer comforts embarrassed fan who tumbled onto court

For all of Busted Racquet's French Open coverage, click here and follow us on Twitter.

An enthusiastic Roger Federer fan fell onto the court after trying to snap a picture of the tennis great following his quarterfinal win at the French Open. The woman was uninjured, though slightly embarrassed.

Thankfully, Federer was more sympathetic than the news anchors reporting the story in the clip below. The 16-time Grand Slam winner walked over to the woman, gave her a hug and briefly posed for a one-on-one photo:

I hope one of the pushy gentlemen caught that on their camera before Federer walked away. It'd be a shame to fall on the court and have nothing but a skinned knee and viral video to show for it.

One thing's for certain, though: That Roger Federer fan is *puts on sunglasses* head over heels.

Racquet clap to Open Source.
