Vera's Zvonareva's Top Notch Smashing of her Racquet - Finally on Youtube

Right, I'll try that again, I didn't get the title of the thread right first time round, sorry about that.

For those that have never seen it, enjoy anyway

a true classic.

I think sam said it well "if you're gonna smash a racket, you might as well do it that way".

The little kick at the end

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

There was no way Vera was just going to smash a racquet.

She really had to go as bat-shit insane as possible. She's so endearing in a concerned kind of way

I'd have smashed it, too, at that point. Or before.

It's been on youtube for months. But I never get tired of watching it.

Who are the commentators btw? They were having a good laugh too

I love how the crowd cheered for her Usually the crowd disapproves, but I guess they just wanted Vera to do whatever it took to make the match competitive

Yeah, it's been there since the day it happened. there was a thread about the epic meltdown and someone posted the youtube link. vera makes the best meltdowns. the kick in the end is the best part.

are u asking about the french commentators? if i remember correctly someone in here said the woman commentator is emilie loit.
