It’s becoming a habit. When Novak Djokovic loses he rips his shirt. He did it at the US Open in his last event and again earlier today in a shocking 6-4, 6-4 loss to Roberto Bautista Agut in the Shanghai Masters.
After dropping the first set to the Spaniard, Djokovic smashed his racquet, then proceeded to clean up the debris.
A few games later, he went after his shirt.

“In terms of results it was up and down, but there are definitely things that I need to regain from the emotional, mental point of view,” Djokovic told the press.
“So I guess I’m focusing on that more. It’s a transition somewhere in between, maybe just exhausted by the amount of matches I have had in the last 15 to 20 months,” he added.
“Maybe all in all that’s the cause of me feeling this way. But, I had to experience this sooner or later. I knew I could not go on playing at the highest level for so many years all the time.”
A contentious Djokovic also argued with chair ump Carlos Bernardes.
