Kyrgios should be behaving better, much better, than he is on court. The things he's said to the officials should have produced much more in the way of official sanction.

Oh COME ON! Pigman, just admit Hewitt is the best. Australian tennis players need to be pigs to achieve (apart from "sorry mate" Rafter) Hewiit, Scud, Cash.... They were all pigs. Pigs prosper in tennis. I'm glad the new breed are pigs, they may prosper.

Good grief


As for swearing, I always swear. And I haven't exaggerated at all, he is in fact a racist piece of ****. His record speaks for itself on that claim

I might start a campaign to entice Hewiitt out of retirement, ffs, he's too young. He is still capable of winning the U.S. open and Wimbledon again. One of those Internet campaigns were you donate money. Are you in Nick! COME ON!

He's been a pretty reliable loser of late, hey? Easy money. But you can't deny those two grandslams? I mean for every bloke that picks up a racket, I reckon one in a million wins a grandslam.

And people like you and I bag them out and criticise them for their on court behaviour. :lol:

When the ball is in play, i have nothing but respect for what he achieved. He never had a great deal of talent but he chased down everything relentlessly, his motor was incredible, and its why he's always losing now, because with age, he doesnt have the legs to chase down shots anymore. As ive stated many times, he came along at the right time, at his peak he was right between the Agassi's and Sampress's and before Federer really knew what he was doing. I dont for one second believe that peak Hewitt could hold a candle to the guys that dominated before him, or the guys that dominated after him.

But he has won 2 majors, and in the record books they all count, and not many professional players can say they extracted every ounce of their talent, but Hewitt can. So ill happily pay his those compliments.
Hewitt with the way he played and heart he showed during play, could have been one of Australia's most beloved sportsmen if he didnt carry on the way he did. But alas he did carry on that way, and for it he was considered one of the countries most unlikable sports stars most of his career.

Kyrgious now faces the same situation, he can either grow up and become the next Pat Rafter or given his talent level, blaze his own trail of success and admiration, or he can continue the way he's gone about things this week and become the next Hewitt. I know which one i'd rather be, and i know which one is more likely to keep getting pay days after Tennis is over.

Don't really like the way Tomic has gone about publicly voicing his contempt.

But why on earth should he ever have to pay for a single ball or court hire. That's just absurd. Not about the money, it's simply insulting

Alright lets start invoicing NRL players for their Steeden footballs and their training ground hire..

It's just stupidity. He's playing as a Professional Australian tennis player on the ATP pro tour. It's an insult.

Hewitt has won two grandslams and has every right to act like a pig.

Tomic and Nick bloke need to earn their kudos before acting like pigs. They havnt achieved anything and therefore shouldn't be behaving like farm yard animals.

Dear Tennis Australia,
Could you please produce an Australian tennis player that i can love and get behind. All you are pumping out is a bunch of jerks and arrogant douche's. (except Stosur she seems pretty cool.)

kind regards,

I've never understood the obsession of getting Dawn Fraser's opinion on everything to do with the world.

Whether it's the Today Show asking her about tennis or A Current Affair obtaining her opinion on the best brand of frozen pizza... Since when did she become an authority on anything outside of swimming?
