21-year old Agnieska Radwanska was having a good first round match at the 2011 Australian Open against Japan's Kimiko Date-Krumm, when something bizarre happened. Just two points shy of victory, the Polish player returned a shot, but along with the ball, also went the top half of her racquet!

The stunned player stared dumbfounded for a few moments as she tried to figure out what had happened to her racquet. Though she was able to gather her wits and win the match, we are sure neither she, nor the rest of the world, will forget this rather embarrassing moment. Of course, she only has herself to blame, since just two strokes before her racquet mishap, she had bashed it on the ground in frustration - Bet she will never do that again!
