Lay off Nick Kyrgios, he’s only human

Ah, the Australian Open. It’s one of the best times of the year – wall-to-wall tennis action. It really is my favourite individual sport. There’s only one downside, and that’s the inevitable slew of hot takes, which my boy Nick Kyrgios is usually stuck in the middle of.

A-League needs to grow up over arm-to-face red cards
