I never watched Ch's so when I saw this I was perplexed , are they bashing because they are not that good in other words is bashing racquets directly proportional to their ranking and second is maybe they are more free in small venues with fewer scrutiny

Go here for highlights from Dallas challenger

The Pless one is really funny, check it out!
I guess it is probably because it's on a smaller stage. You for sure couldn't pull off what Pless did after the match point without getting fined on the ATP tour.
Probably the fact that Pless as Number 83 in the world had just lost in the 1 round of a Challenger had something to do with it, and that it again was in 2 tie breaks. He seems to have lost a lot of tb's in the last few weeks, which must be very frustrating.
All this after starting off the season with beating David NAlbandian!

When you suck ass, bashing rackets should be expected!

It's not that bad Kristian is an explosive guy on court

GGL had a fit too in his match, but then again he won only one game [ ] in his first round match against Reynolds.
