Tennis Tantrum : Bublik Smashes Three Rackets After Losing To Barrere

In a classic case of tennis tantrum, Alexander Bublik broke three rackets during his first-round loss to Gregoire Barrere at the open Sud De France.

The Kazakhstan player's emotions boiled over in the third-set tiebreak, as he fell 0-6 down, smashing one racket on court, before walking off, and immediately wrecking another two.

Bublik, who was the defending champion of the tournament, had opened the deciding tiebreak by serving three double faults.

He went on to lose the match 4-6 7-6, 6-7.
