During his stunning 2-6, 6-2, 6-3 loss to Novak Djokovic in the Miami Sony Ericsson semifinals Friday, Roger Federer took it out on his favorite Wilson tennis racquet.
In a rare display of anger, emotion and violence, the once-mild mannered Swiss smashed his racquet into the court with all his might just after losing a point to go down 30-0, 2-0 on Djokovic’s serve in the third set.
Note how the Swiss turns his head away just at the moment of impact, shielding his precious eyes from the shards of fiber thrust into the air from the blast. The man has done it before. He knows how to properly crush a racquet.
We hope some lucky ballkid got a hold of that frame before it went into the garbage. That’s a keeper as they say.
