Watch: Novak Djokovic crushes racket with leg, argues with umpire & gets loudly booed

Novak Djokovic got extremely frustrated during his Monte Carlo Masters match against Lorenzo Musetti. After one Musetti ball appeared to be well out in the second set, Djokovic argued that the line umpire and then the chair umpire missed the mark.

While Djokovic was pleading his case to the chair umpire, the Monte Carlo crowd started booing the Serb.
