    Rumour has it that Ralph smashed his racquet in the locker room after Wim 07 final. :lol:

    I was watching a futures tournament this week and there is a wall of smashed/cracked rackets. Maybe 20-30 of them.

    I have never seen Nadal take out any frustration on his racket, that said I like the occasional racket smash!!! It is a quick release of frustration and I truly wish Federer would do it on occasion when having a mental meltdown...
  5. Do you ever actually watch the matches? He got mad because he said the ball was clearly out and everyone knew it including Youzhny and Hawkeye was wrong. Youzhny was shocked at his own challenge.

    Nadal lost the SET at that point in a close tiebreaker, and when he went to his chair he kind of slammed the racquet onto his bag. He didn't break it and he wasn't smashing his racquet. He was basically throwing it onto his bag in extreme frustration, and he was holding it by the throat, not the handle.

    Certainly not as bad as smashing a racquet on court.

    Anything to try and bag on Nadal I guess. So ridiculous. :roll:
