OFF WITH YOUR HEAD. Kristof Vliegen, a journeyman pro from Belgium, decapitated his racket in frustration on the red clay of Monaco during his first-round match against Croatia's Ivan Ljubicic at the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters tournament on April 13. Ljubicic won 6-4, 6-7, 6-4.

"It was toward the end of the match, late afternoon. The sun was going down, and Vliegen was in the shade. Sometimes rage is not enough, and it took two tries for him to break his racket." -- Photographer Stephane Danna/AFP/Getty Images
