How many racquets have you smashed?

Heh.

I thought about this during my practice today (after smashing a racquet and tossing it aside)... how many racquets (if any) would you all say you've smashed in all of your tennis playing days?

I'll reply later so I don't embarrass myself too early.


Serena Williams
Martina Navratilova
Steffi Graf



Andy Roddick | Roger Federer | Venus Williams | Lleyton Hewitt | Maria Sharapova | Justine Henin-Hardenne | Kim Clijsters

Re: How many racquets have you smashed?

None...it feels weird to say that. I have four racquets, each one older than the other as I just bought a newer model whenever it came out.

Re: How many racquets have you smashed?

Two. If they werent so expensive I would have broken like 500 by now. When I want to smash my racquet I smack it on my shoe instead of the court

Re: How many racquets have you smashed?

None I may scream at myself a couple of times when I've made a lot of mistakes I need to wake myself up, but I never, NEVER do anything or have done anything to my racquets.

Re: How many racquets have you smashed?

none....cant afford to smash racquets

although I did drive off with one on the roof of my car and come back 25 mins later to find it still lying in the middle of the road after having been run over a couple of times

but that was on the way to tennis, not on the way back, so it wasnt my subconscious wanting to damage a racquet after playing poorly

Re: How many racquets have you smashed?
