Tennis broadcaster Catherine Whitaker shares her epic on-camera tumble

The ATP Finals is a big stage for tennis’ biggest stars, but it seemed to knock sports broadcaster Catherine Whitaker right off her feet.

While doing a trial run of her introduction for two headlining semifinal matches on Saturday, Whitaker appeared to roll her ankle and stumble to the floor. Luckily for Whitaker, she wasn’t live. But she decided to share the clip anyway.

“My big chance to become a meme,” she tweeted with a clip of her fall.

“Yes I’m OK by the way. And no we weren’t live.”

Whitaker was discussing Saturday’s matchups between Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem, and Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev when she took a tumble. Medvedev completed the comeback after Nadal took the opening set, taking a 3-6 7-6(7-4) 6-3 win over the World No. 2. Thiem ended up prevailing with a 7-5 6-7 (10-12) 7-6 (7-5) win over Djokovic. Thiem and Medvedev are squaring off in the finals on Sunday.
