Marcos Baghdatis – because smashing one racquet is not enough…

Something tells me that Marcos Baghdatis wasn’t amused during his second round match with Stanislas Wawrinka… Baghdatis managed to smash four racquets as he went berserk out on Margaret Court Arena.  I understand letting your anger out, but four racquets?!?!?!?!
Day 3 at the Australian Open seemed to be a bad day for the racquets as John Isner and David Nalbandian both vented their frustration during their thrilling contest, which also took place on the Margaret Court Arena…
Also of note, I have just looked at the mixed doubles draw for the Australian Open and WOW! Andy Roddick and Serena Williams have entered the competition and have drawn a show stopping first round match against the number one seeds, Mike Bryan and Kveta Peschke.  As well as that, Jelena Jankovic is pairing up with Bernard Tomic, which will be sure to bring back memories of when she paired up with Jamie Murray back at Wimbledon in 2007.  Jamie Murray himself will pair with Peng Shuai in another interesting partnership.  This is definitely reason to keep an eye on the mixed doubles this year, which will begin later this week.
