Check Out This Tennis Star Bashing Himself in the Face With His Racket at Wimbledon


Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro showed some temper at Wimbledon on Monday as he fought his way into the quarterfinals.

After a long and frustrating match with Gilles Simon was delayed due to light conditions, the tired del Potro released his frustrations on … himself.

As the ESPN clip shows, the face-smashing wasn’t del Potro’s only outburst with the racket on Monday. However, it worked out in the end as he prevailed on Tuesday, winning the delayed match to advance to the quarterfinals in the tournament for the first time since 2013.

Maybe he’s onto something.

“Alexa, is hitting your face with a tennis racket considered good luck?”
