Marat Safin got fed up with his tennis and said he did what any normal person would do: He whacked his changeover chair with his racket, leaving a gaping hole in the wooden base. ``I destroyed the chair, I destroyed the racket because I couldn't take it anymore,'' said Safin, who lost his fourth-round match Monday in the French Open -- but not without putting on a show.
