Both Princes had delayed effects. The first I cracked in a high school match down 5-7 0-3 and came back (because of it, I think) to win 5-7 6-4 6-3, but later I threw it (not that hard) at a HS practice and it broke

The 2nd I cracked in a practice match then it just broke when I took a serve the next week

I cracked the Head racquet (still playable at the time) after I finally broke after like 8 deuces to serve at 4-2 then proceeded to, after winning the 1st point, double fault 3 consecutive times. I was broken back to deuce

Hopefully Tomas gets a good draw, needs some easy matches to get back into form, at the moment he's really sucking.

Racquet smashing

I used to have the absolute worst temper in high school. I remember having a graveyard of about 10-15 destroyed racquets

What sucked even more is that after I would break one, I couldn't play again until I had enough saved for another one I would go like a month w/o playing and then get a new one and then smash it within a few months

Luckily, I've cut this back, and have only smashed one racquet since December

This is what I'm scared of If I broke a racket there's no way in hell my parents would buy me a new one.

DG: you were kicked off the team?

Damn, you must be worse than I was.

The way I look at it, Federer smashed plenty of racquets in his junior days. He went on to have a pretty decent career.
