Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray both took equal turns destroying their racquets today in a hard-fought three set final at the Shanghai Rolex Masters. Djokovic won the match 46, 76 (11), 63 and he won the best prize for racquet breaking for his effort in the first set.
Murray added his own entry after losing the first set, but it was no match for Novak’s greatest effort.
When asked what was going through his mind when he destroyed his frame, Djokovic responded, “You don’t want to know what I thought”.
He then added, “I don’t see anything bad in showing your emotions, positive, negative emotions. I think it’s understandable that we get to show our emotions in this way. Okay, it’s not nice if we break a racquet obviously. It happens once in a while. But we are in the middle of the fight, in the middle of an incredible match. We’re playing for a big trophy. Both of us, we want to win.”
