Everyone's got their own psych-up rituals. Minnie Minoso used to shower in his uniform to break out of a slump, and rumor has it Ivan Lendl ate children the night before his important matches. Mikhail Youzhny one-upped everyone by bashing himself in the face with his racket when he lost a point late in the third set of his third-round match at the 2008 Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. You think that's bad? In Soviet Russia, racket bashes itself with YOU!

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
Although everyone assumed he was bashing himself with the strings, in slow motion you can clearly see that it's the racket frame that opens the wound at his hairline. Hardbody!
