The tennis racket that Boris Becker tossed into the air after defeating Tim Mayotte in Sunday's Davis Cup victory at Hartford, Conn., hit a 74-year-old New Hampshire woman on the head.

Pauline Moreen was treated for a welt on her forehead and released. Becker, who had gone into the stands after learning the woman had been struck, later gave her an autographed racket and invited the woman and her family to the U.S. Open later this summer as his guests.
