Marcos Baghdatis breaks tennis racquets
You may get mad sometimes, but have you ever been senselessly-break-four-tennis-racquets-in-a-row mad?
That was the point that professional tennis player Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus reached during his Australian Open match against Stanislas Wawrinka on Wednesday.
After losing the second set against, Baghdatis decided to take out his frustration on his racquet.
But one apparently wasn't enough. Baghdatis felt the need to also smash the innocent racquets that weren't even involved in his struggles, two of which hadn't even been removed from their plastic yet.
Baghdatis smashed four racquets total and would ultimately go on to lose in four sets. The loss knocked the world's 44th ranked men's tennis player out of the Australian Open and likely out of the running for quite a few tennis equipment endorsements for the forseeable future.
