    Hardly surprising Yelta.

    The names Tomic and Kyrgios are an embarrassment to Australian Tennis.

    They have talent but lack strength of character. Not sure if character is the correct term.
    Integrity? I'll think of the word in the middle of the night.

    Maturity possibly.

    I'm trying think of a word for when soldiers are outnumbered and have their backs to the wall but don't give up.

    Yeah, where are the Pat Cash, Pat Rafter and even Lleyton ' s of Aussie tennis? Those were guys you could really get behind.

    I know! I'm like a dog with a bone.

    This was too good to let pass, commented to my wife when the match between these two at the French Open was announced a couple of days back "Wonder who will be the first to pull out" didn't have to wait long for an answer, from this mornings Herald Sun,

    NICK Kyrgios has pulled out of the French Open

    These clowns are doing nothing for Australian tennis, other than embarrass us, time to look to look past these two, hopefully we have some youngsters coming through with a bit of ticker as well as skill.

    Now Tomic has been beaten by Marco Trungelliti, an Argentinian outsider.

    As usual "Tomic delivered another PR disaster in a sulky post-match press conference."

    He's not a sportsman in my book.
    He has been given a lot from Tennis Australia and did nothing with it.

    He is weak and hasn't got what it takes to be a champion in sport, period!
