    Hairline fracture that got bigger... Poor construction.... No abuse.

    Ah, Prince does have the tendency to put one too many holes in their racquets lately.

    Lol, you sound like your 12 years old.

    But if you were going to destroy the racket why not do it properly and smash it on the court? :)

    One of my all time favorite videos. Funny how, when he breaks the 1st people start booing. But by the 4th they're cheering him on.

    I've broken a racket the "traditional" way.... Using the garden tools allow me to get better samples for science class...

    Its a little more jagged and rough than in that video, but many of the same pole-like structures.... Also, a few small strands that look like carbon nanotubes.... Still trying to figure out what they are.
