No one likes losing, but most of us also don't spit into our palms before a handshake as an act of revenge.
In a video posted to Twitter, it appears that Texas A&M freshman Patrick Kypson hawked a loogie into his hand while walking up to the net after his first collegiate loss. No. 44 Patrick Kypson fell 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to Ohio State's J.J. Wolf.
The video ends just as Kypson goes in for the shake and it appears that Wolf avoids, or at least attempts to avoid, the slobbery symbol of a poor loser.
Ranked sixth at the time, A&M fell to the Buckeyes 4-1, extending OSU's undefeated run. The Buckeyes were ranked second and J.J. Wolf was No. 84.
Never miss a local story.
In a statement to Deadspin, Texas A&M said Kypson has been "appropriately disciplined," but does not elaborate on specifics.
