Watch: Raging Serena Williams Destroys Racket And Then Hits Cameraman

It's been an eventful couple of days at Wimbledon. In Thursday, we had Victor Troicki's epic John Mc Enroe-esque rant at an umpire and yesterday it was raging Serena Williams' turn.

The number one seed was having serious difficulties in her second-round match against fellow American Christina McHale - ranked 64 places below Williams in the world rankings. McHale took the first set and led 2-0 in the second before Williams found her form to win the match 6-7 (7) 6-2 6-4 on Centre Court.

But before she got her game back on track - Williams took her frustrations out on her racquet - and then hit an unfortunate cameraman with the discarded and mangled racquet.

Williams did receive a code violation for smashing the racquet but afterwards, when her passions had cooled, Williams signed it and gave it to a fan.
