Default Re: Ever thrown a tantrum on court?

actually i was down 2-6 2-5 and throughout that game i was in some grueling rallies... i was having some respiratory difficulties and was trying to cool off between points.. i'd just hit a letcord winner after about 20 shots to bring it to 30-30 on my serve, and i had only taken a little longer than usual and my opponent told me to hurry up and stop wasting time. i didn't react, but instead i thought that would be a good opportunity to capitalise on his frustration, and after hitting a second serve ace on that point he completely lost it.

final score was 2-6, 7-6, [10-7]

Sometimes I swear in Serbian. I do it for myself, it helps me, but these are not words that would suit a girl like me. Really, you wouldn't bet I'd ever say it if you saw me The people are usually pretty shocked when they hear me and my coach asked me to stop it several times, but I couldn't. And I've hit my racquet, but just twice. I'm always too afraid of breaking it.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

In the state semi-finals last year I was playing a pusher, in high winds, so not only was I mad that I was losing to someone who was incapable of a complete forehand I was angry that the state had chosen a wind tunnel for the state tournament. So eventually partially into the second set I took to screaming after every point I lost, like a loud enraged snarl. Or the cries in the movies right before a warrior kills somebody. Didn't work: I lost. I also when losing tend to yell "Get off my court" when I hit a winner

Default Re: Ever thrown a tantrum on court?

the damage to oneself lay,
in the inability to respect good play,
and see past self torment,
to enjoy the battle another day...



i was a habitual racquet breaker as a kid...

my younger brother and i would use a trampoline for a net in a chip n volley game, with the garden hose marked out as lines... my racquet ended up on the roof the first time he beat me 6/4... little **** ****...

i got to my mid twenties and realised that tennis wasnt about perfection... and found that the closest thing to pefection in tennis... ... ... was the acceptance of imperfection...

i soon left tibet and began to spread the word...

i still shave my head...

I threw up on court once.

Also once I made a mistake and I was going to scream "SHIT" but I didn't want to cuss so I tried to think of something else and before I know it I yelled at the top of my lungs, "SOUP!"

You'd probably win if I was your opponent, because I'd die of laughter

i have never really gotten too mad, but once i was ballkidding for a smaller tournament around me (which had some good people like blake davydenko and davenport) but anyways. i was ballkidding for this foreign guy, who was decent, and after a certain point he lost, he just turns around to me, and im like two feet away, and he just smashes his raquet on his knee, it was hilarious.

Classy all around. This is why the American youth have little hope in my opinion. Rather than working on their own game, they generally find an excuse to do anything but. Yelling about the wind (it was equal for both of you), screaming after every lost point, and trying to taunt your opponent are generally sure fire signs that you aren't going far. Grow up or find a new hobby my man, as you have no hope (other than embarrassing yourself) as it stands...

Just thinking what it must be like for the pros. Probably a million times worse since they're playing for their livelihood with serious bucks and prestige at stake.
they just need ten pints of lager.
