I say FREAK! alot when I mess up and then smile and laugh at myself after I say it. Other than that when I get really frustrated I become silent and just feel like giving up (which I do). I finish the game but I give no effort. I'm working on it though.

I played against someone who kept raking his knuckles across his strings in frustration whenever he missed a shot. Had to shake hands left handed after the match as his right hand was covered in blood

No, I have (accidentally) hit myself with the frame of the racket twice, i didn't bleed but it does hurt! I usually hit myself on the (right) leg, rarely on the head.

I'm trying to avoid the tantrums
Usually I'm more like the happy Baghdatis, than the angry Safin

Re: Ever thrown a tantrum on court?

When I played my first match against my friend I cussed a few times when I made reeeaaallllyyyy bad serves or kept hitting the ball out of bounds. Ever since then I wised up and told myself its pointless to do that. I put my anger into my serve and volley's now. Yesterday I was doin bad. Took a deep breath and put the anger in the serve and got out 4 ace's in a row.


Never broken a racket though since I'm broke and cant afford a new one yet lol

Re: Ever thrown a tantrum on court?

I was playing a junior tournament in Dallas. It was the second round and I won the first set 6-0. In the second set I drank way to much between sets so I lost the 1st game. Then after a few close line calls from my opponet. I asked him "are you sure" which led to "Are you kidding me" which led to "Now way, let me see a ball mark." This was the worst conduct I have ever had on court, and to this day I still fell so bad. Also one time I there a rwacket and broke it into abut 1000000000000 pieces.

Re: Ever thrown a tantrum on court?

Not many people know this, but even Borg used to have major tantrums. I heard that one time his coached punched him in the locker room and he never complained again....

Tantrums are fun to watch - there should be a tv show of them.
