    I feel he's such an uninspiring artist. He just lacks a certain something. The guy sitting next to him is between amused and disturbed. Not even a person in first row can affirm one emotion.

    PS: the gif responses are better than the actual smash.
    Meet again we do, old foe...

    Sascha always loses me because he's always sitting down. There's something too controlled about that. Throw your whole body into it and then maybe it'll be more impressive. Loving the guy next to him, the flinching because he had no idea it was coming, the facial expressions. He's the star of this gif for me.

    The other guy totally steals the gif - which just adds another level of pathos and futility to Sascha’s situation here. Beautiful.

    It took him 7 smashes to do what Stan has done in a single one. Plus, the guy next to him is completely unimpressed. He has the same look that a passenger in the German Bahn would have if a person sitting next to him would break wind after a meal of bad sausages. It is not fear or loathing, it is repulsion.
    Wimpy, to my untrained eyes.

    I think the guy next to him is mortified and slightly repulsed.

    Gorgeous spinning effect at the end. I don't know how he did it but being Benoit, I am not surprised. He is Santoro's larger and evil brother.

    Perfect analogy!

    I hear "PING!" when he throws the water bottle at the end. Given last year's winner, bonus points from now on for a PING! ending.

    So negative points for this one where he injured his father?

    Not at all! Smashing a racket with an intent of patricide? Superb! Too bad he missed his dad's head, but well, this has certain originality.

    I don’t see how his dad got hurt. The racket doesn’t appear to make contact.

    I think a piece of the frame nicked him.

    Was there a ping? If there wasn't a ping it's a run of the mill smash...
