Mikhail Youzhny has carved out the word 'sorry' with his foot in the Roland Garros clay after slumping to a 6-0 loss in the opening set of his third round match this morning.
The Russian is taking on sixth seed David Ferrer at the French Open and is now also a break down in the second.
Youzhny, 29, has a history of strange on-court displays; he once made himself bleed from the head after hitting himself with his own racquet.
