    Just an observation about a couple of very successful oz sportsmen/women. Ash Barty is into round 3 of Wimbledon as No1; Toby Price is a world champ. Both of them refer to their successes as "we" indicating they are part of a team. No histrionics, no controversies or public meltdowns. On the otherhand a couple prominent egocentric tennis players are out of the tournament.
    Just an observation that Ash and Toby both acknowledge the team.

    Both Ash and Toby are excellent ambassadors for Australia. Something that has been sadly lacking in the majority of our sports people.
    I have been put of a lot of sports by the very unsportsman like behaviour of so many .
    Go Ash

    Cheers Tom R

    Exactly. Those cheating bastard cricketers should have been banned for life....and, as for those thugs running around a paddock....seems you can commit any amount of off field crimes, as long as you play well....

    Dan Ricciardo, Jack Miller, Remmy Gardner and Jason Doyle are/have also doing us proud as Australian ambassadors in sport.
