Baghdatis. No question.

The way he took each one out and smashed it was beautiful.

jayoub95 03-21-2012 02:33 PM

forgot to add Andy Roddick in the poll. He has a good one at number 7 in the video.

Roddicks best racquet smash..

JohanKriek, by a mile.
He could smash a racket just by hitting the tennis ball to try to win a point. No need for ground assistance for him.

I love the Baghdatis and Gonzales smashes.

The Federer smash was quite good too, but the biggest thing about that was how unexpected it was, and also how brutal. That racquet was totalled.

Hood_Man 03-21-2012 03:27 PM

Ok, having actually watched the video, LOL at Baghdatis smashing 4 in a row! :lol:

LeeD 03-21-2012 03:30 PM

Problem with Marcos is that he needed a full swing.
Kriek could snap a racket with a casual flick of his wrist, totally aplomb, and relaxed as can be.

It's always entertaining to see Federer smash a racquet because he hardly does..

gsharma 03-21-2012 03:40 PM

Vera's was pretty good. She really got into it :-)

Tony48 03-21-2012 04:50 PM

LOL, I like how a lot of the commentators mentioned Gonzalez.

FearOfTheDark 03-21-2012 05:54 PM

I loved the way Federer tossed that racquet to the side of the court. Total bad ***!

Bergboy123 03-21-2012 05:58 PM

Federer's, not only because it was so uncharacteristic, but because in one fell swoop he completely totaled the racket. No second swing necessary. It's not as epic when you have to bash it against the ground like 4 times.

jayoub95 03-21-2012 06:03 PM

Agreed. Feds can really surprise you with his anger sometimes.

Towser83 03-21-2012 06:07 PM

baggy was hilarious, just destroying one after the other haha.

Youzhny was good but more for the damage to his head than the racquet...

Federer's was good. Don't think Safin's was that good in the vid... I'm disapointed haha

OddJack 03-21-2012 06:13 PM

Baghy did it for This poll.

jayoub95 03-21-2012 06:14 PM

Feds, Baggy and Safin all tied up on 7 votes each. Interesting

Tammo 03-21-2012 06:15 PM

Did Youzhny get a racket abuse? I love how he took it out on himself.

jayoub95 03-21-2012 06:17 PM

He's a bloody soldier.... a bleeding forehead doesn't bother him lol

Bergboy123 03-21-2012 07:01 PM

I guess we get to see if the TW board rule about Fed winning all polls holds true in this case too, haha. :D
