Marcos Baghdatis is furious that they’re canceling Desperate Housewives. Either that, or it was an issue over the way he was playing at the Australian Open, where he was trailing Stanislas Wawrinka 7-6, 6-4 in their second-round match today. The Cypriot went mental during a changeover break, wrecking four rackets and then realizing he needed the fifth one to resume the match.


Too bad he expended all that energy. He battled back to take the third set, 7-5, but then lost the fourth and final set, 6-1.

Or maybe he was just killing bugs.

    …no wait, this is tennis, that should be deuce.

    Upon further review, I had it right the first time.
