Youzhny smashes racket at French Open

Mikhail Youzhny didn’t have a very good morning at the French

Open.

And his poor racket bore the brunt of his frustration.

That’s nine freakin’ whacks … no racket is surviving that

barrage.

Youzhny was on the unfortunate end of a remarkable day for Tommy

Haas, who, at age 35, became the oldest French Open men’s

quarterfinalist since 1971 after cruising to a 6-1, 6-1, 6-3

win.

Hey, at least Youzhny didn’t take it out on his own head this

time.

So, you know, maybe he’s learned something.
