AUSSIE DUO TOLD TO IM­PROVE AT­TI­TUDES OR RISK MISS­ING RIO

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyr­gios may have to im­prove their be­hav­iour if they hope to rep­re­sent Aus­tralia at the Rio Olympics. Kyr­gios has reg­u­larly abused um­pires and op­po­nents, while Tomic last week de­lib­er­ately gave up a match point and later said he didn’t care be­cause aged 23 he was al­ready worth $10 mil­lion. Now both play­ers have been put on no­tice by Aus­tralian chef de mis­sion Kitty Chiller who de­scribed Tomic’s ac­tion as ap­palling. She said: “It goes against ev­ery ac­tion that all the Olympians live by. There’s a few ath­letes that are on watch and those two are among them.”
