    I heard that someone smashed a frame, took out a brand new racquet, Smashed that one and went on to win the match. I think it was Verdasco. Anyway, I just thought it sounded like sending a message to the stringer. Maybe there were the wrongs strings on the racquet. So he just smashed it.

    At least he is consistent! Looks like the exact same spot that each is smashed!

    Lesson to be learned from Baghdatis...smashing rackets > winning matches.
