Thumbs up Post all racket smash videos & pics in here!

I did a search and was shocked to see we didn't have a thread for racket smashes. So here it is.


"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Post all racket smash photos & videos in here!

Hey, great idea for a thread! I think we should give notes too.

This is obviously a 9/10:


"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Post all racket smash photos & videos in here!

I'm hoping one day we'll have the Holy Grail of racket smashes: Rafa losing his mind and busting it up while Uncle Toni looks on disapprovingly.

Another long-lost Roger smash.

Can't disagree, whenever he does it, it's Top Notch Quality.

And of course, the GOAT in Racket Smashing:

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Post all racket smash photos & videos in here!

I love the Gonzo racket smash at IW, how he egged on the crowd to cheer him for racket abuse.

More entertaining Gonzo smash videos:



Somehow it's Rafa's fault the racket hit Gonzo in the head:



Gonzo gets even with Rafa by hitting him in his injured stomach:

BTW, thanks for your comments on my memorial siggie!

My favorite racket smash from Marat. He made a heart to show how much he loves tennis.
