    Exactly this. What’s the obsession with personality’s in Tennis ?

    Why should they be ‘characters’ but not footballers?

    Messi seems like a normal boring bloke

    David Silva too, a sensible family man who once on a CityTV video said “I’ll only have one bite [of a Bakewell Tart] because there’s too much sugar”.

    I’ve never cared for “personalities”. I’ll look for them in comedians or mates who liven up a night out. But for sportsmen I just want to watch elite sportsmen.

    She's doing brilliantly, but looked tired at times today. She'll do brilliantly to get past Halep.

    Mindful not to put too much expectation on her either. This run is very similar to Laura Robson's in 2013.

    Absolutely on the money. Said many times give me a men's final ticket over a cup final of any description.

    I just don't get the way outrageous behaviour is tolerated by the tennis authorities. If a footballer behaved towards officials like Kyrgios did, he'd be baneed for some time and vilified by the media, and holier-than-thou people would say what thuggish, vile yobs all footballers are.
    The only way to stop this would be to ban players like Kyrgios. Fining them is a drop in the ocean.
    That'd soon stop it. He's not a "character", a "personality", or a "bad boy". He's a despicable shit who would get his teeth knocked out if he behaved like that in any other branch of public life.
