    So far I have broken only one racquet and it is not broken by me. It was done by my friend who borrowed it and broke it when he smashed at a birdie.
    He repaied me with a better racquet though thus I was not too sad

    2 - oh dear lol

    first one - was walking on court, think i looked behind me - to my now girlfreind but then girl i wanted to be with, next thing i know my racket goes between my legs i don't realise and the dreaded "snap" and falling over


    or more recently, i went to return a net shot that someone i was playign with decided to pull out, i got the shot over, but as it was nearly on the floor, and i had to run from the back court, my momentum followed through onto my racket, again, that "snap"

    i blame the g/f - she asked me why i took two rackets, cos one was never going to break - least i proved her wrong

    1st, I was going to say the proof is very costly. However, since she's your gf now, I guess it totally worth it.

    this is true but you know, i was kinda hoping for an excuse to get a new racket, i just never saw the point cause i liked the one i had - but you know, snapping it was kinda the breaking point (no pun intended) to get a new one

    Lost count of the racquets I’ve broken over the years some of the recent casualties;[/FONT][/SIZE]
    Last one a Yonex MP the shaft snapped about point up above the cone during a rally.
    Previous one Yonex Carbonex the head loop sheared.
    Before that had two Carlton Airblades both had shaft failures, a third was returned before it broke completley.
    Before that a Babolot which I clashed with another player and knocked out of shape.
    Before that a Karakal where the head loop sheared.

    Lots of broken rackets. Mostly broken at the shaft just above the conce or at the 8 o'clock position due to mishit smashes and the remaining were snapping and/or cracking the handle.

    I only have 1 racquet broke in my life. It was the stringer's fault. I bought my own machine after that. I use to break tennis racquet every year when I was in highschool because Yonex has 1 yr warrenty. After the store stop carring Yonex (reason unknow). My tennis racquets lasted me forever. Go figure...

    clashes, damn clashes.
    mainly due to miscommunication with partners or over-zealous play, though i haven't really broken that many, maybe 5 or slightly more.

    -Mishit during smash at 10 or 2 o'clock position. I noticed the rackets that I broke only those that were strung at 30 lbs. I supposed a high tension string rackets reduce its durability.

    3 for me which really sucks because they're good ones

    1st - NS8000, i was swinging it in my [small] room and i hit the corner of a desk at the 5 o'clock position

    2nd - NS9000X (replace the ns8k) i actually have no idea how this one broke, i opened the case once and it was already broken ~ i recently mailed it to yonex for a warranty

    3rd - AT700, i assume it was the cold Canadian winters that broke this one since it's from Thailand. First it had a crack on one side, then it spread to the other, after that, a simple clear broke it.

    1st - Yonex NS8000 during doubles.

    I was preparing a smash to punish a half-court lift to my side of the court. For some odd reason, my partner decided that his backhand block could do better. He stretched out, blocked the shot and my racquet. Cracked at 11:00 and broken clean at 2:00.

    2nd - Yonex NS9000-X (also doubles)

    Different partner here :P
    Made the mistake of stepping too far back, hence I thought a high drive down the middle line was my shot. I stepped back, prepared for a backhand clear. I hit the shot, with my partner trying to forehand drive the shot through. Hit the shaft - snapped it in half. That was... today

    I retired an Armortec 800 OFF when a crack was developing at 11:00 due to a clash.

    Off-topic: I also recently destroyed my SHB-99LTD . Torn the sole apart (not as bad as Dink's :P)
