So what are you people gonna do when ...

... a great player comes to tennis who has the ego of a Terrell Owens, Allen Iverson or Barry Bonds. And I would bet that the day is coming when tennis will have a straight up "no holds barred", "don't take no &^$# from nobody" type player who knows he's one of if not the best player.

If that little silencing gesture offended you that deeply, I can't wait to see what you say when said player arives on the scene.

Tennis isn't popular enough for any player to get that big an ego.

it was far worse before with Connors, Nastase, McEnroe. Luckily the umpires and rules regulate stupid behaviour. If getting "personalities" into the business is the only way of making tennis more popular, I won't be a fan anymore.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.
