    Can anyone really confirm that Ivanisevic broke LESS than 1055 in his career? ;)

    After refusing to stop playing with his prestiges and parting ways with Dunlop, I recall having to destroy almost that many custom built 200g hairpins with his name on!

    You should've taken them for yourself, locked them in a vault and then wait for him to retire!

    I know there's tons of funny videos on Youtube, but there's one where some kids filmed Safin and Tursanov practicing a few years ago. Safin kept missing some shots, then smashed his racquet with his usual 2 or 3 slams on the court. The guys filming it were heard laughing like crazy, which added to the whole festive scene. Priceless.

    I already had too much in that vault. They were raw hairpins so no huge loss...
