Mikhail Youzhny is a Russian tennis player who currently is ranked #58 on the ATP. Here he's returning a serve from Kei Nishikori (see yesterday's post) on the grandstand court during the Miami Open. A few years ago, Youzhny was ranked as high as #8 and he's always interesting to watch.
There seems to be something about Miami that draws out fits of rage in tennis players. (Perhaps the relentless scorching heat has something to do with it. Just a thought...) Anyway, Youzhny is infamous for his Miami Meltdown in 2008 when he bashed his racquet against his forehead with such force that blood trickled down his face. It happened on this very court. I missed that display in person; however, it's memorialized on YouTube if you're interested you can watch it here. I'm pleased to report that he played well during this match and kept his emotions in check.
