You may have already seen this viral clip of Andrey Rublev hitting himself aggressively with his racket at Wimbledon, it happened yesterday.

The tennis star had a meltdown or temper tantrum during his first round against Francisco Comesana.

The Russian player smacked his racket on his knee, drawing blood, before going back to out to play, but lost the match.

When asked about his freakout, he said he turned the racket on himself because he didn't want to disrespect the rules of Wimbledon, which is to not hit the grass or damage the grass.

The self abuse reminiscent of a crazy person on the street punching themselves in the face like some kind of masochist is disturbing to watch, but Rublev says he needed to let his emotions out and everything is fine.

He had a similar freakout during the French Open, so it' s just part of his game that has made him over 23 million dollars in his career and that has him ranked in the top 10 in the world!
