When vaidisova smashed her racket to bits in her 2nd Round USO match, she threw the remains to one of the fans after the match.

Kournikova wiped her nose with a tissue and gave it to a ballboy for him to throw it in the trash, but he just stuffed it into his pockets instead

I saw Hingis throw her racket into the stands after winning the Australian Open. Don't know who caught it, but Cliff Drysdale said something like "That fan now has something he will keep forever."

I think I have see other players do the same thing, but I can't cite and specific examples.

I think Martina threw one into the crowd after the 1999 AO final, or I just dreamed it. I'm not sure.

Hingis threw all (or most) of her racquets to the crowd when she won the 97 US Open.

I've seen Roddick this year give his racquet to a fan who was disabled.

Graf threw her raquet into the crowd when she finished her calendar-year slam.

And the Frenchies (Clement and Llodra) who won men's doubles at Wimbledon last year gave away all their raquets - an their shirts - to the crowd (Llodra and Santoro tossed everything but their knickers to the crowd when they won the Oz doubles)

Jelena was not playing well in LA last summer and she decided to switch rackets.... There was a very LOUD Serbian cheering section that day so she ran over and gave the dejected racket to the Serb fans. The Serbians cheered even louder and Jelena won!!!

At wimbledon this year, i was walking around the grounds and i saw some girl about 13 years old with a shiny K-Factor in her hand, she was smiling so hard so im guessing a player gave her it. :lol:

Vaidisova gave a racket she smashed vs Pennetta at the USO 07 to someone.

I think Roddick gave his to some disabled guy when he won Queens.

Erm, some ATP player gave his racket to someone in the crowd when he hit a ball in anger at him.

Djokovic threw his racket in the crowd when he won ATP Miami

Some dude threw his racquet and it hit a uy in the crowd at wimbly this year, then gave it to him... we saw him walking up the street, was only when we watched the days round up on tv that we realised where he'd acquired it, lol...

Also I think Amélie threw her racquet into the crowd when she made the final of wimbledon last year...
