WATCH: Courteney Cox's tennis accident

The video starts with Courteney perfectly hitting back a ball that's tossed to her from off-screen. But when the second ball came at her, she hit it hard and aimed straight for the camera.

The ball crashed right into the camera and sent it spinning to the floor. Courteney eventually ran up and looked down at it with a face that said, "oh boy, oh no."

"Ooh, that didn't look so good," she said, before saying a quick sorry and running back to join her game. She soundtracked the clip to Montell Jordan's 90s classic This Is How We Do It and simply captioned it with a, "Sorry" and a shrug.

Monica was known for her aggression when it came to sports, particularly terrifying her husband

The video spurred a hilarious reaction from several people, including Kaley Cuoco, who left an abundance of laughing emojis, and Diane Keaton, who could only manage a few shocked faces. Derek Blasberg wrote, "I’m never being your ball boy."

However, the nostalgia of it wasn't lost on fans, who were reminded of the time Courteney's character on Friends, Monica Geller, tried playing tennis with her husband, Chandler, and his boss, letting her competitiveness shine.
