Mikhail Youzhny had no one to blame but himself for his defeat at the hands of American Thomas Haas.

His racket, however, took the brunt of his frustrations during a changeover at the French Open.

The Russian tennis player strode over to a bench and hacked it with his racket nine times before his racket finally broke.

Youzhny continued his record of epic tantrums on the court with this recent outburst. This time he chose to spare himself bodily injury,  a change from 2008, when he brutally struck himself with his racket and bled on the court.
