    Re: '18 Racquet Smashing Contest

    Link didn't work for me. Says not available in my region (near the actual tournament...).

    Anyway, here are two videos I found on youtube of both separate incidents toward the end.

    https://youtu.be/q_Q1hUoosTg (Broken. Smashing repeatedly on the ground, stomping the player bench, smashing a fresh racquet out of his bag.)

    Bonus points for smashing a racquet while on the ground! I also thought that bench was toast, that would have 100% clinched it!
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!

    Eh. Typical match for Paire. I thought for a second he was going to smack Baghdatis trying to comfort him.

    Yeah let's deduct a couple points for being friendly with Marcos.

    Puh-leaze...

    Paire forgot he was in front of the Master. I bet that when Marcos went to Benoit he was like, "Only two? Hold my beer sonny"

    Nice touch. Breaking racquets still in plastic.

    Yes, and apparently no one has caught on to that technique. Major points are being squandered.

    Zverev had another entry after losing the second set tiebreak, but the cameras didn't show more than the warmup.

    I haven't seen it, but I hear Pouille has a worthy entry from when he lost the first set to... Sousa.
