One extreme pro chasing a wide ball and hit the fence post.

One TT Bandit after being 4-5 40-15 and serving three doubles.

Yup, on one overhead. Broke on the 10'o clock position. Brought it back to the pro shop and got a replacement

Haven't ever broken one yet. And if I do, it'll be an accident. Was actually convinced once that my frame would be broken after it slipped during a serve. It just bounced up, and was fine. And that was my only racquet at the time...

Messed up on an approach shot and in one throw I demolished the racket...I had named her Debbie.

I did once while trying to finish a match with a broken string. The head just collapsed from the uneven tension. That was back in HS, more than 20 years ago, with a Pro Kennex Silver Ace.

Every racket I've owned since I was five, save for four.

Snapped my Trysis 3000 the other night right through at the handle.

My kBlade 98 broke after one month of use, fabric fault, and got a replacement. My chance to get a new kBlade tour :)

I cracked 2 Yonex (R-22 or 27??) at the 4 o'clock position when hitting overheads. They were replaced promptly.

The others?? Sadly, I was a bit tempermental as a youngster. I hit a net post and collapsed one racket, others were "bounced", thrown, etc.

I used to crack my old Yonex rackets (can't recall the name - they were a maroon color) all the time right in the throat of the racket. I probably returned 8 or 9 of those rackets through my junior tennis days, they were very good about it though and sent me a new one every time.

I've only broke one by hitting it on something once, I slapped it against a fence post after missing an easy shot. It was very stupid, I was winning and did win the match very easily and I was terrified that my mom would find out since she was the one paying for the rackets at the time. She never found out though. :)

Too many to count. Fortunately, most of them were cheapies. Did break a few Wilson nTours and a Dunlop m-Fil 400.

Broke my first adult sized racquet (but it was a recreational frame). It was an old timer and it decided to break after i did some serve practices.

I lost my doubles spot in HS and I smashed my yonex Rqis 2 into bits. Really regret, awesome racquet.

Nothing worse than seeing a good racquet get wasted.

Two
I broke Nblade on a serve, on the throat
and a Kblade 98 at 4 oclock on an overhead.

Sent them both back and they were both replaced by wilson.

I'm too cheap to intentionally break a racket even though I truly have felt the frustration that would cause me to!
