    A tennis tantrum by Russian Mikhail Youzhny left him bloodied but made him a YouTube celebrity.

    When Youzhny hit a backhand into the net during his third-round match Monday at the Sony Ericsson Open, he angrily whacked himself in the head three times with his racket strings. The forehand to the forehead sent a thick stream of blood running from above his hairline down his nose nearly to his mouth.

    :pointlol: What's funny is that of Connor, Nastase and McEnroe, none of them was stupid enough to actually injure themselves despite their tempers.

    My boss drove down to Biscayne for the tourny and saw this live. The craziest part is how the dude wipes blood all over the towel and throws back to the ball kid.

    I remember McEnroe and maybe Connor being penalized for abuse of racket more than once after smashing it against the ground.
