I completely agree with your personal outlook, but I would add that those who break racquets and otherwise throw a tantrum are not making their tennis (not yours) less enjoyable, they are actually soothing the immature IMO, attitude that they are just too high quality of a player to miss that shot. So, emotionally they feel better, of course their quality of play suffers (unless their last name is MacEnroe, Connors or Nastase). But I disagree that they are all stressed out about it. They would be under much more stress to come to the adult realization that, yes, they are totally capable of missing that shot.
