Tennis Is Intense

I really don't have words to describe this. I'll just let you watch. Wait for it.....Waaaaaaaait for it (fun starts at 1:30 in).....



Umm yeah. That's Mikhail Youzhny seeming not so happy with himself. A bit crazy, but the motivation tactic seemed to work because he came back and won the match.

Wow, that has to be one of the greatest things I have ever seen. Just wow.

Who deserves a 10 minute break for a self-inflicted racquet wound?

Why does it take the trainer an eternity to just slap a bandaid on and go about your business? The guy's prepping for surgery or something with that ridiculous suitcase.

When I was 7 or 8 I repeatedly smashed the controller into my forehead after an excrutiating mental error playing pong - but the computer didn't stop and wait to see if I was okay. Suck it up Youzhny!

They might have to change the raquet abuse rules after this one.

But being the Sports Info Dir. for the Men's tennis team here at UMD, I've learned that tennis players may be the most unstable people in the world.

At least 95% of the guys playing constantly talk to, and often scream at, themselves. Very often it's just hilarious, and you can sometimes catch the coaches laughing.

Radioman, it's a British network...The UK and the US are two countries separated by a common language...Perhaps the Dutch painter's name is pronounced 'Van Goff' in the land of fish and chips...

That was a fantastic bit of video...I enjoy sports partly because I know I'll never be able to hit a 98-mph fastball, shed the block of a 340-pound offensive lineman, or rock the rim on an alley-oop...Youzhny managed to do something I never will, nor would I want to...
