    Re: '20 Racquet Smashing Contest

    This is the only thing I could find for Medvedev, not sure if it's the right one, but it is a pseudo racquet smash. Jump to the 40 second mark.

    I'm sorry, take that clip down! That is embarrassing! That is the smashing equivalent of John Cages' "4:33".
    An insult to the craft!

    He struggled to make contact with the ground on three swipes! He really does suck on clay.

    My infant daughter has a better techinque than Daniil. Such a disgrace.

    Guido Pella giving us an entry. You can feel the anger. Bonus points for duration.

    I like it but as long as it lasted the damage to the racquet was minimal.

    I think this is Bublik. If he loses his next match quickly, we won't have to wonder why.

    Sorry, Guido, not good. 5 smashes and the racquet head is still holding? Have to go back home and get some beef in that system.
    Style and repeated-ness are interesting, but no, the racquet is still very much alive.

    Medveded improved something before RG - his racket smash. Condensed rage, instant contortion of frame, big spin at the end. Extra points for incurring a point penalty for this to go down 2 sets to love?

    Attitude is correct and after the last smash you can appreciate the destruction, it's very fleeting, but it's there. 8pts.

    No harm to the damage and didn't draw blood, disqualified.

    At least there's something Medvedev can do well on clay
