5 Angriest Tennis Players Of All Time

#3 Andy Roddick

Andy Roddick has a reputation of letting off steam the wrong way, especially on the court. He rarely leaves the court without saying a thing or two about the opponents or the match officials. One incident that has left a mark in the history of Tennis is the incident that occurred during the Mutua Madrid Open.

Roddick’s opponent for this match was Cipolla. His opponent was leading 2-0 and Murray lost it when he gave away an easy point. He smashed his racket violently, shocking everyone present.

His audacity was on full display when he walked up to the umpire and asked him if he had been warned for his actions. When the umpire responded with a no, he smashed his racket yet again, until the umpire finally issued him a warning.

Andy Roddick went on to win the US Open in 2003. He has reached the finals of Wimbledon thrice and has lost all three times to the same player, Roger Federer.
