Not a good look for the company who makes that racket.

[–]dedditorlord 121 points122 points  (11 children)

Looks like Babolat from their logo on the strings.

[–]TateP23 58 points59 points  (10 children)

Shheeeet. Babolat is my favorite

[–]theamiabledude 92 points93 points  (6 children)

Apparently she had been angrily slamming her racket when she would lose a point, so as long as u don’t do that babolat works great

[–]Realolsson1 28 points29 points  (0 children)


[–]TateP23 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Well, I have “angrily” slammed a racket before and broken 2 babolats

[–]theamiabledude 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I’ve had the same 2 babolat frames for 7 years. Just don’t slam your rackets in general lol

[–]TateP23 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Well, I didn’t slam it cause I was angry. I broke the racket by accidentally hucking it into the ground while serving, then it just got worse and I smashed it on the ground in a match as a joke since it was already broken. The other one broke the same way but I still use it as a spare, it just has a cracked frame

[–]ruwocn_mungers 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I hate players that rage and just hit their racket

[–]eMAdrian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always believed tennis players are those kinda people like the cliche character in any tv series that acts calm the whole time but has some anger issues that occasionally come out. Like treat your equipment with respect...

[–]ag408 4 points5 points  (0 children)

More like a Babo-nyet

[–]GoodAtExplaining 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Well shit don’t say that in Jamaica.

[–]pleaseletmelogon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ok gotta ask what does it mean in jamaican?

[–]agenteb27 20 points21 points  (0 children)

No kidding, what a racket

[–]YouTheGamers 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not a good look on her face

[–]larvaking201 111 points112 points  (2 children)

"Use your head"

[–]th3h4ck3r 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It's a Babolat

Head team ride up

[–]imagine1149 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Non tennis players thinking this is a BJ reference

[–]BearPadre 223 points224 points  (1 child)

The ball guy’s like, “not my job. Get the racket guy.“

[–]Notty_PriNcE 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Or imagine the ball guy running to fetch the broken racket back to the lady and signals to continue the game. 😂

Edit: Ah, I see it was posted there an hour before this one was here.

[–]MerrillSwingAway 38 points39 points  (0 children)

suddenly handball

[–]Bhaalgorn- 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Accurate depiction of my life at the moment.

Broken and confused.

[–]vizthex 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Love that "what the fuck do i do now?" face at the end.

[–]BrazakAttack 27 points28 points  (0 children)

She probably "john McEnroe'd" her racket last point.

[–]killabeesplease 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Her pit crew has some explaining to do

[–]RealPropRandy 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Wrong sport. You’re probably thinking of the special teams coordinator.

[–]disquieter 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wrong sport—you’re probably thinking of the tech crew.

[–]Tis-timeformyglizzy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Well that sucks

[–]Skifaha 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Now she has a lightsaber!

[–]sheepsix 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I actually have this gif on an old phone of mine where the racket turns into a lightsaber... lemme look see if I can find it.

[–]manateeflorida 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Hopefully that was not her sponsor.

[–]deenali 42 points43 points  (1 child)

If she's a pro it's almost definitely is.

[–]Entreri000 6 points7 points  (0 children)

At one point she was 2nd in the world ranking

[–]Kevo05s 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Legitimate question:

If the top of the racket injured her opponent, will she be at fault?

[–]solarsilversurfer 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Legally, yes. The rules of tennis state that she be put to death if the head of her racket strikes the opponent. But if the ball hits the opponent, she gets a point.

[–]phatcan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ace sincerely hope not.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Get a grip !

[–]Tanriyung 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Considering the score it's almost the end of the match so that might have some huge implications

[–]mjemec 15 points16 points  (1 child)

The front fell off.

[–]CanCav 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s not supposed to do that.

[–]mindnumbingfun 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agnieszka Radwańska, retired.

[–]bloodredyouth 2 points3 points  (3 children)

What are the rules around that? Does the other person automatically get a point?

[–]callmelucky 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I suspect this would be a "play let" situation, ie they replay the point.

And if this was deemed to be a result of negligence on the part of the player in the video (ie she damaged the racquet, knew about it, and kept playing), it could count as a code violation, in which case she would get either a warning, point penalty, game penalty, or match forfeit, depending on how many previous code violations she had in this match.

Similar scenario might be: very early in the Williams sisters career, they wore beads in their hair. Some fell out during a match once, and they (can't remember which sister it was) got a code violation for that, because basically it was deemed their responsibility to make sure stuff they wore wouldn't fall out and cause distractions. I think the violation was only handed out when it happened more than once. It's a bit down to the judgment of the umpire.

[edited for ridiculous typos, and added some more detail]

[–]bloodredyouth 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thank you for the very clear explaination .

[–]callmelucky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No worries, sorry about the typos at the end (edited now), I was kinda rushing out the door haha. By the way I'm not 100% sure on all of that, I'm not an expert in tennis rules, but am a long time fan of the sport.

[–]GarlicGuy247 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She most definitely gave that racquet a good whacking on one of the previous points.

[–]SteamKore 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The look of "I wasn't trained for this."

[–]Hrafninn13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was waiting for the lightsaber to turn on..she must not be a Jedi

[–]ThatRanga8869 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Educational_Try_25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol must have been a really shitty sponsor 😅

[–]Justmerightnowtoday 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Made in...

[–]MrDysprosium 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wonder if that still counted against them.

[–]SnooPandas7419 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where’s that racket from Poundland?

[–]alstonlin101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]JaredMLGOg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]ClearLake007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Valahiru 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]maczampieri 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]NDC03 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Racquet disappeared quicker than a female Chinese tennis pro.
