How to Smash A Tennis Racquet

EDIT: I added a photo of Vera Zvonareva.

If Marat Safin can smash racquets like he's quality testing them, the female species have someone to present as well. She can bitch like Serena Williams, cry like Anna Chakvetadze, and can be as violent as Dinara Safina or the king of tennis violence, Marat Safin.

Here's a smashing protege, presenting: Vera Zvonareva

Here's a photo of Vera smashing her racquet in a more creative way. I love this person.

And then here's to the Master of smashing racquets like they're made of... jello.

Frustration is a really nasty thing. When you know you can do something and can do it regularly, then you suck up at the most important moments in your life, like let's say you're already on the brink of losing a match with your mental self, frustration tastes like (insert the name of a food you really hate here). And when you're an athlete, particularly a tennis player, smashing racquets or hitting yourself or something else with your racquet is usually the most convenient way to blow off that burning steam.

If you're a professional tennis player, smashing racquets is a very entertaining thing to do. However, if you're not a professional tennis player, that thing is just plain crude and .... expensive. Just shout your lungs out. That'll be better and cheaper. Or hit the net. I know I did.

MORAL: If it works for you, do it. As long as you don't piss off the crowd, they're paying your salary.
