Youzhny reacts badly to losing point

Russian tennis player Mikhail Youzhny seems to have succeeded where Federer and Nadal have failed by getting normal people talking about the game.

Has he found an English granny and declared that he's going to win Wimbeldon for Britain you ask? Nope.

Youzhny has become a star of the internet after reacting angrily to a missed point in his match against Nicolas Almagro of Spain at the Sony Ericsson Open 2008 on Tuesday.

After making a pig's ear of a relatively easy shot the Russian then proceeded to beat himself over the head with his racket, splitting his head open and drawing blood. Ouch!

Not one to lie down though, Youzhny was patched up and went on to win the match!
