Mario Vilella Martinez’s meltdown has been branded ‘art’

Martinez, 23, has the chance to serve out in the third set but served up three double-faults before shanking a forehand long.

At that point he completely lost the plot and repeatedly smashed his racket into the clay surface.

After battering it into bits, he flung what was left against the wall to complete his outburst.

New York times tennis writer Ben Rothenberg tweeted: “This may be the best racket smashing I’ve ever seen!

“The growing cloud of dust around it is especially artful.”

Britain’s Laura Robson agreed that the violent scenes could be classed as “art”.
