I saw the incident on a Chinese TV news sports report and realized that Roger F had willfully destroyed his lovely Wilson racket. It’s a first time experience I think to see him do such a thing.

Whatever the reason, Roger Federer reached his boiling point Friday. He raised his racket over his head and slammed it to the concrete, a shocking outburst from the five-time winner of the ATP Tour‘s sportsmanship award.

The tirade came during a 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 loss to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals at the Sony Ericsson Open — the latest evidence Federer’s in meltdown mode.
