I love it. Slavs are so crazy sometimes. His opponent walked over and was all "LOL WTF?"

I also love how the ref awarded another point to his opponent against unsportsmanlike conduct, then corrected it for fear of the guy killing himself or someone else.

I love how he totally tries to bluff and hide the pain, while blood trickles from his head.

"For the record, he got patched up after, won the next 7 points straight and won the match" of tennis, a game I derided before, and shall continue to do. fyi, this is the first time I have looked at anything tennis related since the 90`s, and I looked at it to see a tennis player smash his head with a racket, not from some inexplicable urge to find out what he did after, be it go on to be the crown princess of wimbledon or whatever is the feat all tennisers dream of, or packed it in and decided to farm shrews or something before dying of vomit inhalation in a playground in moscow. its the same to me.

Charizzo, stop, you are defending someone who prances around hitting balls for a living, who, after missing a shot, hits himself on the head enough to bleed.

Wow... I really despise all you people flaming on tennis... I`m a tennis player myself, and I agree that it`s not that interesting to watch after a while. But have you ever played? Seriously...

Despite that... I`ve witness my friend needing stitches on the forehead from a tennis accident. The opponent sliced the ball, causing the ball to slightly change direction upon its bounce. My friend had no time to react, so he just swung at the the ball which was closer to his body. On the backswing, he hit his forehead, cutting it.

I can say that I`ve almost done this a few times too.

Hum, upon reflection, tennis would be far more interesting played with hand grenades. and land mining football fields would be interesting as well,
sports are so bland now, if someone farts near a football player they keel over and roll around clutching some random lower anatomical part. any other psychopathic sports suggestions?

.....Also it was funny that only the trainer and the opponent were there to do anything, in any other sport there would be 50 people on the scene immediately.

Understandable. Even Roger Federer smashed his racket in frustration.

Someone should just have given him a headband so the blood wouldn`t get in his eyes. He is clearly too hardcore for a bandage.
And kudos to the other player for laughing at him.

I thought he was cute until the blood started to flow. :}

And in pro sports, your emotions are running very high, especially after a long volley like that. His frustration was understandable, but he did go too far with it (and probably regretted it about 3 seconds after that last whack).

"Finally! Tennis made interesting!"

Have you seen women`s tennis?
I wouldn`t mind if Maria Sharapova hit my balls...tennis that is... regular balls would just be quite painful

Haha, smooth.
I like how he almost didn`t even seem to notice the blood flowing down his face.

The reporters were amusing with their calm comments and their laughter.

I got angry when I played tennis too, kicked a water jug clear across the court.

Suffice to say that was my only year in tennis. Not particularly my sport. :-)
