Busted Racquet

We all know that Andy Murray is the type of player that rolls with passion, but it can be a problem at times if his game isn't there to pick him up.

After sailing a relatively easy forehand long to allow Stanislas Wawrinka to break him in the opening set of their quarterfinal match at the U.S. Open, Murray didn't just smash his racquet once, he went after it a couple of times to make sure it was good and mutilated.

Murray's anger didn't turn his game around as Wawrinka went on to beat him in straight sets, ending the defending champion's bid at a second straight U.S. Open title, but at least that racquet figure out who was boss.
