STAR WARS star Hayden Christensen was once a ballboy at the Canadian Open tennis tournament.

The Canadian actor, who is a huge tennis fan, remembers almost being knocked unconscious by John McEnroe.

He recalls, "He was having a hard time in the match and I was ballboying at the net on his side of the court and he hit the ball into the net and I was eager and jumped the gun and ran out and grabbed the ball.

"He unknowingly went to go smack the ball just as I was going in to pick it up and literally pulled up inches from my head."
