a little fight club action


Mikhail Youzhny - Miami 2008

Watch this clip of Mikhail Youzhny totally losing it after squandering a break point opportunity at 5-4 in the third set against Nicolas Almagro at the Sony Ericsson Open.

He smashes his head with his racquet. Three times. Turned out to be a bloody mess. Let’s hope he doesn’t play a brainy game ala Andy Murray because that didn’t do his head any good.

Misha eventually pulled it together and won 7-6 (4), 3-6, 7-6 (6) to advance to the fourth round, where he lost to Janko Tipsarevic.

    Watching this, I really just wanted to go and hold him until his head stopped bleeding.

    But… he won the match. What a trooper. :)

    So weird. And now a YouTube sensation. I’ve wondered if he was a bit off, and this confirms it. Isn’t it a trickle-down effect in Russia, though? Look at their president.
