Last week, Diego Schwartzman lost to Marco Cecchinato of Italy in the final of Argentina Open.

And if his gesture in his first match since is anything to go by, he is apparently still to get over the disappointment of not crossing the line in front of home fans.

During his first-round match against Romanian Marius Copil at the Mexican Open, Schwartzman smashed his racket just one game into the match.

After going down 15-40 in his first service game, the 26-year-old vent his frustration on the racket.

He quickly regrouped to complete a 6-3 4-6 6-1 win over Copil and set up a second-round clash against Cameron Norrie of Great Britain.

This is not the quickest racket-smash though. A couple of years back, Carlos Berlocq smashed his racket on just the second point of the game.
