You could be mistaken for thinking that the linesman in this video spilt his strawberries and cream down his leg. Slightly more uncomfortable, however, this linesman was bleeding from an attack from David Nalbandian at Queen's yesterday. Nalbandian was disqualified from the final, yet we rather enjoyed this lively outburst from the Argentine.

Of course no discussion of tennis tantrums would be complete without a mention of John McInroe. McInroe is the absoloute daddy of on court rage. There are a number of McInroe outbursts to choose from, but we've gone for this gem from Stockholm in '84. "THE QUESTION, JERK!!

Taking inspiration from his compatriot, Andy Roddick's tirade at the Australian Open in 2008 recalls the best of John McInroe. Roddick berates and insults the umpire in a verbal rage McInroe would surely be proud of.

In recent years, Marat Safin has always been a reliable figure for fury at a tennis tournament. Here is a classic racket break, a move for which he is well known.

If you thought the above video was bad, wait until you see this moment of madness from Greek Marcos Baghdatis. Baghdatis annihilates not one, not two, not three, but FOUR rackets in spate of unrepressed rage.
