    I was shocked to see on the T.V. the other evening, tennis players practising their tennis ball skills by hitting the balls against the walls of their rooms, and their mattresses against the wall and hitting into them.? ? I hope these hotels (which are very expensive to book into) sends a bill to have the walls repainted. I’m sure if any of us had done the same, we would be hit with a “Please Explain” bill.

    Wow ! “Shocked” What a mealy mouthed view to take, as though you are affected by their actions.
    They are adding some interest into our lives during these trying times.

      Well Wow shocked to you Kram. There is nothing wrong with being respectful which you clearly aren’t , calling Hola mealy mouthed .

      There is nothing entertaining about watching a few overindulged, childish athletes wrecking hotel rooms.

      Hola is right to question if they will be called to account for their disgusting behaviour. This would not be tolerated by hotel guests in normal circumstances.

      Grow up and pipe down and if you are an older person which you should be if you are on this forum then Shame on you.

    Yes I saw that Hola

    I suppose Tennis Australia will pay for any damage caused but they sure are no role model for the kids.

    Cannot see why these international tennis players were brought over in preference to Victorianss being allowed to cross their own state.

      Right on Kram and well said. Flibbit before you ribbit, obviously you have no idea what it takes to be a professional athlete. The players themselves are trying to make the most of a bad situation. Stuck in hotel rooms for two weeks and unable to train, some tennis players have come up with great ways to prepare for the Australian Open. Nuttin wrong with that!!!!

      Besides Victorians in quarantine or detention, which Victorians are not being allowed to cross their own state?
