When Tennis Players Misbehave: The Ultimate Top 10!

Tennis is a great sport and has been growing in popularity and consensus, since the advent of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, living new golden age. Also, exploits of Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have contributed to make the last five years fun and competitive.

Even in the female tennis we are experiencing the same golden age, with the absolute ruler, Serena Williams, and the pretenders to the throne, as Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep. But as we all know, even tennis players are humans.

And like humans, they make mistake. Just like humans, sometimes they misbehave. It's easy to forget what is the right, best thing to do when you are in the heat of a tennis battle with just one person who can become responsible of your loss and disappointment: your opponent.

However, what happened at the Rogers Cup 2015 between Nick Kyrgios and Stan Wawrinka, cast further light on Australian players and the new upcoming generation of bad boys. But Nick was not the first, nor the last to break bad on a tennis court.

At Tennis World we created a top 10 of the worst moments of unacceptable behavior recorded on a tennis court . Which one is the worst? 10) Fabio Fognini vs Rafael Nadal "Don't p*** me o** ! Every time you do the same!" The quarrel between Fabio Fognini and Rafael Nadal in the final of the tournament in Hamburg (ATP 500), won few days ago by Nadal, would seem to be born because Rafa was annoyed by Fabio when the latter spoke nervous during his turns of service.

Toni Nadal, speaking of the episode, said the Italian tennis player was annoyed with him and his habit of talking and coaching during changeovers, and not with his nephew Rafa, although the video can clearly show what happened.
