I've never seen them smash a racket. What gives? Have they ever done it?

I'm sure they have in the locker room after a match or in practice. Some players just show there emotions differently.

I think it's temperament. Nishikori doesn't tend to vent steam that way and never really gets overly upset. He will look down sometimes and shrug his shoulders but that's it.
Raonic similarly - I've seen him pick up the racket in the smash motion but stops himself - not a word.
Tsonga i don't know but seems like a cool guy who can get on with it.

And interesting vid:

Raonic has gone through the motions, but hasn't let the racquet go.

Tsonga broke his racquet vs Klizan at USO 2012.
Kei broke once in 2012-2013.

Don't often see Tsonga smashing racquets. Though seen him eating balls on a number of occasions..

Eating balls? Shouldn't this be in the gay player speculation thread?
