All I see is she gets ready to serve and then turns around because (probably) the umpire said somethin' ?!

I don't know about you, but to me the ball is never even tossed.

I thought it looked more like a drop at the 5 second mark.

Lol... You guys don't get it. This is one of the good pieces in Rob's collection of quirky videos. What special about the piece is not what happened but what did not happen. Laura was supposed to serve, but she didn't. Had she served, it wouldn't be special.

On the other hand, the piece titled "Anand Engineer and his parents leave" is not special because of what happened but because of what happened behind the camera. The fact that Rob saw and captured the moment and turned it into a piece with such an apt title turned the ordinary into something extraordinary.

I especially like "Anand Engineer and his parents leave". It caught your eyes and you wonder "Is Engineer his last name or is it engineer Anand?". And then you realize "Oh, that's his last name. What a cool last name to have". Next thing that hits you: "And his parents? Why parents?" And then you go: "Ah, he's a kid and he's with his parents". Just then another wave of wonderment surged again: "Leave? What 'leave' really means here? It can't be the simple act of leaving! That would be too ordinary an event to capture on film". So by now you're completely hooked. You have to down load the damn video to find out for yourself what the hell "Anand Engineer and his parents leave" is all about.
