Jerzy Janowicz gets the best of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ... and his own shirt

TENNIS-ATP-ITA

ROME -- Jerzy Janowicz upset eighth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4, 7-6 (5) on Wednesday in the second round of the Italian Open. The charismatic and emotional Pole celebrated his biggest win of the year by going full-Hulk on his Adidas shirt, ripping it with authority. Novak Djokovic and Carlos Berlocq would be impressed.

Janowicz, 22, was so pumped up by his third victory over a top-10 player that he started busting out of his top before he even shook hands with Tsonga. Once the pleasantries were exchanged, Janowicz finished the job.

Janowicz will face another top-10 Frenchman, Richard Gasquet, in the third round. He might want to bring extra shirts just in case.
