1. The tantrums
You can find more than 1 minute videos out there of these racquet breaking, referee and ball kid abusing sportspeople anywhere on the interwebs.
Tantrums are as much a part of tennis as the net and the balls. Throwing your racquet and abusing officials is taught at tennis academies around the world. Probably.
2. The long matches
Because of the advantage set (the last set must be win by two games essentially) tennis games could potentially last for hours and hours.
And they have. Just ask John Isner and Nicholas Mahut. Many have called it the best tennis game ever, some called it a yawn fest. Whatever it is, it's over 11 hours fans aren't going to get back.
In a multi-sport setting the broadcaster is only going to show bits of it, and probably not the best ones. It's so inconsiderate. Keep it short and simple, sweets - our couch potato time during the Olympics is sacred.
3. They have little servants
Joy in the effort? Ball kids do everything for tennis players. From running around chasing and throwing balls, collecting sweaty towels and clothing, to getting drinks and general dogsbody tasks. 12 hour days and depending on the tournament - virtually no pay.
It's like Downton Abbey out there.
4. Gold medal? They already get so much bling
Look at that silverware. That'll look good in the front room.
5. Gold medal? They already get so much bling
Nope, it's not a typo. This bling is money.
Hardly seems Olympic idealsy.
