Spanish tennis player Mario Vilella Martinez has been ridiculed on social media for his insane racket-smashing meltdown, which was sarcastically dubbed ‘tennis tantrum of the year’, at an ATP Challenger event in Kazakhstan.
The world ranked number 262 attracted much public attention after a video of him destroying his tennis racket during the match went viral, with many fans admitting this was one of the craziest racket smashes they had ever seen.

If smashing his racket relieves the stressful nature of his job, being paid to play tennis, I say go for it.
Why not take out a little anger on an inanimate object.
