Novak Djokovic Loses His Temper As He Crashed Out Of Shanghai Masters

Novak Djokovic couldn’t quite contain his emotions Saturday during his tough semifinal match at the Shanghai Masters.

The world’s top-ranked tennis player smashed his racket and ripped his shirt during a 6-4, 6-4 loss to Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut.

Novak smashes racket

It wasn’t pretty.

Djokovic grabbed a towel and swept away his racket splinters after he lost the first set, but the damage (literally and figuratively) was done. He was unable to rally in the second set, putting Bautista Agut in the final match.

The shirt ripping came later, when he hit a forehand into the net.
