    Re: '19 Racquet Smashing Contest

    That was good especially since it only took one throw. Did the carnage continue when he sat down? If it did he gets a 10. If not I'll give him a 9.5. Zverev is my new standard.

    No, it didn't really continue. So what that gif doesn't show is that it came after he slipped in his shoes, nothing bad occurred with his racquet before he destroyed it. Then he went to his seat, no further carnage to the racquet, grabbed a new one and went back. But after he lost the set, he made a big production of taking off and tossing his shoes into the crowd.

    He definitely gets 10/10 for showmanship, even if it's obnoxious.

    I like the second movement flinging. It really adds to the choreography.

    Djokovic with a very interesting submission in his match today. I'll see if I can find it.


    ETA: Okay, here's a gif of it, hopefully there will be longer gif or a video posted soon.

    I think breaking the racket on one of one's body parts always deserves extra credit, even using a foot. Good one!!

    Considering that you are also risking physical injury that might sit you for a while, it shows a commitment to the craft that is rarely seen.
    That's the spirit!
