Novak Djokovic loses temper and shirt during tantrum at US Open (VIDEO)

To call Novak Djokovic emotional on the court is definitely an understatement. But nothing prepared anyone for the midnight madness that erupted during his 6-1 3-6 6-3 7-6 (2) US Open quarter final victory over 18th-seed Feliciano Lopez late Tuesday night.

The No. 1 ranked tennis player lost his temper and his shirt after dropping the second set and this courtside tantrum was epic.

The hot-headed Serbian first ripped his shirt off right after Lopez claimed the set before calmly strolling to his courtside chair.

He sat still briefly in a composed manner before the profane hissy fit ensued.
Even Djokovic's red-faced wife Jelena wouldn't translate his angry words.
Djokovic eventually composed himself enough to outlast Lopez and wrap up the four-set win at just after 1am local time in New York.

The win means Djokovic reached the semifinals at Flushing Meadows for the ninth consecutive year.
