Venus & The Best Ball Boys In The World

We all know that dogs love tennis balls. So what does a tennis match look like with three adorable canines as ball boys? Watch the video right here on wtatennis.com!

AUCKLAND, New Zealand - Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova played an exhibition match like no other during their stay at the ASB Classic in Auckland this week, ably assisted by three of the world's biggest and most adorable tennis fans - well, tennis ball fans - Oscar, Ted and Super Teddy.

Watch the video of Williams, Kuznetsova and 'The Best Ball Boys In The World' right here:

The three ball boys, in order from left to right in the first photo below, are: Oscar, a Bull Mastiff who was due to be put down but was thankfully rescued, and now lives on a lifestyle block, occasionally working in TV and film; Ted, a Border Collie, who recently retired from the obedience trial circuit and now keeps busy running around his farm and forest, swimming and making the odd TV appearance; and Super Teddy, a Jack Russell/Norfolk Terrier/Miniature Schnauzer cross who won the 2014 New Zealand Clever Canine Competition and is the current holder of the coveted Best Eyebrows In Tennis.

Williams and Super Teddy hit it off right away, even playing a little bit in the press conference room - check out more photos of the pair below (all of the photos are credit to photosport.co.nz).
