Safin for SmashGoat - he took it to whole new level ....

Unusual collection but cool nevertheless.

there's a funny story about how many racquets Safin obliterated during his pro years, somehow Head kept some kind of control about it, and by the end of his career they offered him a snowboard with the number "1055" - meaning how many racquets he smashed, according to Head's math.
This is over 60 a year.
This kind of breaks my heart, and I don't even play Head - but got a PC 600 Classic in almost pristine condition, it's such a good looking racquet I don't even understand how can a spoiled pro cracks it because thing are going bad

I wonder if Wimbledon is going to put that net post in a museum/on display somewhere as a momento of the 2023 final or just keep using it on centre court? I think they should keep it on centre court as kind of a war scar/"joker was here"for future finalist to see.

Even 5 is embarrassing for Mr.Squeaky (clean image) but imagine producing that number on the left when you’re actually winning a good percentage of matches - just like Kyrgios there appears to be anger management issues that most other players don’t suffer from to the same level.
Wonder if he can beat Safin’s total as he starts losing more?

The player would need to watch out for splinters. I saw two 1st gen Pro Staff 85 snapped by an open age group player in after he lost in a clay court tourney.

I actually saw this happen when I was a ballboy at a challenger in 2009. Ilja Bozoljac. He lost a point in the third set, he was using the kblade 98, and let out a SCREAM and split it in half over his leg (the throat of those was pretty hollow). He lost the match and I took the racquet as a memento XD
