String snapping... has to be a collision..
Take a look at the picture. Does it look to you as tho the reason for the string snapping (only re-strung it 2 sessions ago) has been a collision or scraping or something that seems to have crushed the grommet
I'll not be charging the guy for a re-string anyway but my conclusion was that he must of either smacked or dragged the racket on the floor.

deff looks like a drag on the floor

but how is it possible to drag that part of the racket on the floor? that's the 4/8 oclock position.
try it out yourself.
also, it takes a lot of force to crush the grommet like that. he is not telling you something.

a dive?... or simply got pissed and hit something ...?

It's just shy of 3 & 9 o'clock position. You should see the rest of the racquets paintwork... So many scratches and chips.

This racket is having improper relations with the floor (and possibly two-timing the floor with other rackets) - no way a grommet collapses like that under string pressure alone.

It is dragging on the floor. Have seen some guys using a racket as a third leg :-)

Yes, I have seen quite a few rackets like that. This is a reflection of how the player treats his racket, I would tell them not to drag their racket anymore.
