On ESPN, they showed her smashing her racket many times...which seems the likely reason why it snapped off like that.

Also, they said that she could have been disqualified from the match for that. :lol:

Watch out for BabolatsNothing to do with that.

It was just not smart of Radwanska to smash her stick repeatedly

Pretty much inevitable that it finally snapped

This is so funny, but I don't see how anyone could blame Babolat for this. She was smashing her racket all through the match. Don't u think it would snap at some point? She should have at least been warned or something the way she was carrying on. But glad she got through it in the end. Her reaction was fucking priceless :spit:.

They should have run the before "bashing of raquet" tape along with this one...it was like pulverizing the poor weapon and then expecting it to remain together:rolleyes::eek::fiery: No surprise Aga dear!:help:

It served her right (excuse the pun ;) )..I watched the whole match and Radwanska smashed it so much that something was bound to happen. A shame Kimiko didn't close it out, like she deserved.

miffedmax
Jan 18th, 2011, 06:40 PM
really? i remember lets being called when caps or hairbeads flew out in the past

The rule is that a player may not cause a hindrance to herself (think about it--since your first hindrance is a caution, on a key point you just drop your cap on the court when you realize you can't win it and ask for a let--I don't think so). Since Date-Krumm won the point, there was no hindrance.

Now, I'm not actually sure what would have happened if by some miracle Radwanska's shot had gone in what the correct call would have been. The rules state that if you throw a racket, you lose the point, but Aga held on to the handle.

My GUESS is that the correct call would have been to caution Aga (unless she had previously been cautioned for a hindrance, in which case she would have received a PP) and play a let. I don't recall seeing a specific rule for a racket breaking in half, but I'll see if I can look it up.
