    It was a weak lift, only 3/4 to the back line ! hoping to finish the rally with a smash and as I hit the bird my thumb slipped and the racket shot straight into the ground ! hope he wont get too angry to me :p

    the racket belongs to my friend ! I just broke my strings and remembered he left his racket behind last session and i picked it up so i took it out just to finish the game. After finding the mangled body next to my feet a friend ran off the court beside me and threw it away yelling out "it is over, garbage !" i was just stunned

    seriously, manufacturers should not use the word armor on such fragile racquets.

    I broke my AT900P a few months back just from a mishit and since it was still in warranty and I strung it to the recommended string tension , they replace it with a brand new one and store gave me some coupons as well. They are very fragile rackets , but I dont think you would be warranty for ''racket broken due to slipping out of hand''.You should apologize to your friend, especially when you not ask him to borrow his racket , and buy him a new one, string it to his preference and a few drinks in the bar
