A sports fan, obviously. First passion is tennis, but take more than a passing interest in AFL, Rugby League, Cricket, Olympics, and even Ice Hockey.

Exactly right. As he said himself, needs to work harder. Hopefully he’ll find a coach he can work with.

And that’s the conundrum with the tournament schedules. Do you put Nick on a big court because people like to watch him? Or because his ranking is down, and because of his on court behaviour at times, do you put him on a small outside court?

Totally agree Simoc. Funny thing is, there’s millions of people in the world who just cruise through their job at half pace without wanting to go further. Kyrgios is simply doing that. Not sure why we should spend so much media time worrying about it.

Apparently Barty had an arm injury. The same one that was giving her trouble a couple of weeks ago. It wasn’t so much ignoring the doubles, as focusing on the singles. John Peers is a fantastic doubles player, and I do think doubles is very underrated.

Spot on Brainstrust. That’s exactly what this shows. It can be argued that the Big 3 are so much better than anyone else, but I feel as though some of these young guys should be regularly matching it with them by now. I’m worried for the state of men’s tennis in the coming years.

Which ATP 'Next Gen' player will have the best career?

Well, one out of four made it through. I think Popyrin has a reasonable draw, and could make a run

Looking forward to seeing the draw come out. He could make a run if he gets a favourable first match or two.

You’re absolutely right Darren. It is a blatant revenue raising idea really. I can see the pros and cons of it, and I would be ok with whatever the AFL decides – although I do think it will be brought it sooner rather than later.

Could the Dees and Tigers give the AFL's wildcard dreams a boost?

Fair call Knoxy. I’m happy enough with the status quo too. But I’m pretty sure the AFL will put it on the agenda again.

How about a 17 game season with a top 6, a 7-10 Wildcard Round, and a State of origin carnival mid year?

Spot on Jest. The bye is a wonderful way to lose all momentum into a finals series. Then they play a Thurs/Fri night and Sat day and night match, leaving Sunday as a dead day, when there should be a 2pm packed house at the G, or Adelaide Oval/Perth.

Couldn’t agree more about AFLX. A complete waste of time. While not 100% against a Wildcard Round, I’m definitely on the side of ‘leave it as it is, and get rid of the bye before finals’!

Exactly right.

Can’t argue with that Grints. I actually agree with you. I’m just thinking that if the scenario does play out, the AFL will be out there spruiking what a good opportunity a Wildcard Round would be.

Draper’s only 17, so it’s probably a bit early for him. I haven’t seen him play, but for British tennis’ sake, I hope he can continue up the ranks.

Thanks very much Geelong Tiger. I’m not really for it myself, but when I thought about a couple of scenarios, I can definitely see why the AFL might like to introduce it.

Thanks Barry. Always a great time of year for sport, and for me, Wimbledon is the number 1 event. We’ll keep an eye on these guys for the remaining qualifying matches.

Three out of four have started well. Mahut went down to Australia’s JP Smith.
