    THIS!

    The violence is such that his whole body is affected and transported forward with every whack. And the final fling. Wow.
    Besides, this guy is 100% journeyman. That might affect his wallet, but he doesn't care. He is committed with his art and that is something very rare these days. Respect.

    It was great before, but it is even better with sound. The thwacks, the loud ping at the end. Just beautiful work here.

    I didn’t realize it was on match point. Somehow that makes it even better!

    He won the first set 6-1. Must have been more fuel to the frustration.
    The PING at the end just takes it to another level. It sounds like a bell at an auction: "Sold! To the gentleman going berserk on the right!"

    I think you're right even with it just being early June. Each time I see a new reply I check in here, but I also watch again, which I never do with most smashes. This is a masterpiece.

    It's so perfect, I wondered if the sound was added in.

    I completely agree that this is a very real contender for year-end honors, as I said. Though someone disagreed, I still think he turned his head all the way around to see the back fence before he threw the racket......I do think somewhere in his raging mind, he wanted to be sure not to hit anyone. And I agree that the "ping at the end takes it to another level." That is priceless.
