Tennis star Andrey Rublev is going to need some bandages for his knee for the next few days … ’cause he bloodied himself during a wild temper tantrum in a match on Wednesday.
Rublev’s explosion happened while he was going up against Carlos Alcaraz in the ATP Finals in Italy.
Rublev had been trying to go toe-to-toe with the tennis superstar … but when Alcaraz got the better of him one too many times, Rublev snapped.
Check out video from the court … the 26-year-old smashed his racket into his knee six straight times — opening up a gash that required medical attention.
He was ultimately able to finish the match … though he fell to Alcaraz, 7-5, 6-2.
Afterward, Rublev told reporters his knee was OK … adding, “I get disappointed and couldn’t manage.”
The silver lining for Rublev? The ATP Finals is the ATP Tour’s season-ending event … so he’ll have plenty of time soon to calm down — and ice up.
