During Thursday’s match against the great Roger Federer, Benoit Paire had an extended series of meltdowns in which he kept throwing his racket on the ground.

At one point in the second set, he threw it down repeatedly and actually had the thing bounce back up and hit him in the face.

Overall, he was just throwing fits that any toddler could relate to. And in the process, he was amusing many (and annoying others) who were watching from home.
