No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev goes mental, smashes racquet


Alexander Zverev has done a number on his racket.

Upset about how badly things were going in his match, Zverev sat down in his sideline chair and destroyed his racket by whacking it against the ground eight times — and then tossing it aside.

He was warned for racket abuse after the display, which came with the Australian Open’s No. 4 seed trailing 6-1, 4-1 against Milos Raonic.

Soon enough, Zverev lost the second set, too, also by a 6-1 score.
