Tennis player Jerzy Janowicz has epic meltdown (Video)

jerzy janowiczPolish tennis player Jerzy Janowicz had an epic meltdown at the Australian Open on Wednesday.

Janowicz was in the middle of a first-set tiebreak against Somdev Devvarman when he blew up after what he felt was a bad call that cost him the set. Devvarman seemed to pull a forehand wide, but the judge called it in to even the tiebreak 9-9.

Janowicz was so upset he began yelling and pounding the ground over the call. Because they were playing on one of the smaller outside courts, a Hawkeye review was not available to him. He tried begging the chair umpire to overturn the call, but he had no luck.

Janowicz lost the tiebreak 12-10 to drop the first set, and Devvarman took the second 6-3. But Janowicz regained focus and rallied to win the next three sets 6-1, 6-0, and 7-5 to win the second-round match.

    Awww, poor baby. Thinks he was the victim of a bad call, so he throws a $hitfit that would’ve embarrassed John McEnroe. I assume that means that if he thought his OPPONENT was the victim of a bad call, he’d give the point back. Right? Yeah, RIGHT! Somehow they never seem to remember all the bad calls that went THEIR way.
