Tennis. The word and game conjure images of crisp white shorts, glasses of champagne and gentlemanly handshakes across the civilised battleground of the court. So what's with some of the biggest names in tennis being maniacal egotists with mouths you wouldn't kiss your mother with? Where are the manners? The decorum? The guys and girls you want to take home to meet the parents?!

In an effort to bring some good old fashioned manners back to the game, we thought we'd remind players how not to behave during the Australian Open (watch out Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic - we're watching you!) by round up the worst offenders. And you won't believe what they said!

They said what?!
