Nick Kyrgios has confirmed he will not be representing Australia at the Olympic Games in Rio over comments made by the Australian Olympic Committee. Dave Taylor Jersey . Kyrgios joins compatriot Bernard Tomic in pulling out of the team after both players were placed on watch by AOC chef de mission Kitty Chiller over their behaviour.Tomic released a statement last month that he did not want to be considered for the team and Kyrgios, although he has been backed by Tennis Australia, added his name to the unavailable list on Friday. The 21-year-old has been at the centre of a number of incidents on court, frequently receiving warnings for swearing during matches, and he was given a suspended ban last year for making lewd comments about Stanislas Wawrinkas girlfriend. Kyrgios mad moments We take a look at the Australians previous run-ins It is with a heavy heart that I have had to make a decision not to compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Kyrgios said on his personal website.Coming to this decision has been a lengthy and difficult process, and I am extremely disappointed to have been put in this unfortunate position. Bernard Tomic also withdrew his name from consideration AOCs unfair and unjust treatment of me over the last four weeks, as well as the organizations crystal clear position on whether they want me to be a part of the Australian Olympic team, has solidified my final decision.While I have received assurances from Tennis Australia that I will be nominated for the Olympic team, the AOC has chosen to publicly and privately disparage me.Not one member of the AOC has reached out to me, my family, my team, or representatives of Tennis Australia, asking for a meeting or the opportunity to discuss their concerns. Kyrgios has regularly made headlines for his hot-headed behaviour on court The AOCs unwarranted attacks on me demonstrate the organizations inability to understand the circumstances surrounding highly competitive sports.No tennis players have yet been officially nominated by Tennis Australia, and the International Tennis Federation is yet to inform countries which players are eligible - that announcement is expected on June 9.In a statement released on the AOCs official website, Chiller said: According to his website, Nick Kyrgios has made himself unavailable for selection on the 2016 Australian Olympic Team.At this point, Nick Kyrgios, or any other tennis athlete, has not been nominated for selection on the Australian Olympic Team. In regard to selection every athlete in contention is treated equally and fairly. We have no further comment on this issue. Also See: Djokovic reaches Paris semis Will Rafa return?

Founding members of the Genie Army, a group of Eugenie Bouchard supporters who cheered for the rising tennis star during the Australian Open in January, will be in the city for the Rogers Cup, beginning this weekend. Dave Taylor Kings Jersey .J. -- Omar Cummings helped the Houston Dynamo advance to the MLS Eastern Conference finals.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray 6-3, 7-6 (2) in an one-off match at Madison Square Garden on Monday, with the pair mixed the usual exhibition hijinks with some long rallies reminiscent of their epic Grand Slam meetings. A born showman, Djokovic always has fun with the New York crowd at the U.S. Open. When on a game point Monday he shanked an overhead into the net, the Serb did push-ups in penance. It was the first time playing at the Garden for both. "I was amazed by the size of it," Djokovic said. "With the history in the world of sports and entertainment and music, its probably the most impressive and most important indoor facility in the world." Murray grimaced more than once after an unforced error as if he were a few miles away at Flushing Meadows. But he also high-fived a fan after hooking in a winner down the line. And the Brit provides plenty of entertainment value simply with his ability to run down nearly every ball. Chasing a drop shot in the first set, Murray wound up all the way on Djokovics side of the court, bumping into a TV camera along the way. Djokovic went over and jokingly massaged Murrays quad, lest he need a medical timeout. During one changeover, they pulled their phones out of their bags and met at the net to take a couple of selfies. Both tweeted them during the next break. "We might never get the chance to play here again," Murray said. "Wanted to enjoy it. Hope eeveryone who came along had a good time as well. Kyle Clifford Jersey. That was the whole point today." And hes in a good mood after his surgically repaired back held up well following four matches in four days in Acapulco last week. There were the obligatory exhibition shenanigans: between-the-legs shots, pulling a kid from the crowd to play a point. In a bit of a twist, Djokovic invited reigning Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, who has since retired, from the stands to briefly take his place. Murray welcomed her by launching a serve as hard as he could that had the Frenchwoman ducking. Bartoli then ably exchanged groundstrokes with Murray in high-top canvas sneakers that were more fashion than function. The BNP Paribas Showdown opened with the Bryan brothers beating the McEnroe brothers 8-3 in doubles. John McEnroe added a little sizzle to the meeting a few months ago when he made some harsh comments about the current state of doubles, suggesting that top players today are the guys who werent athletic enough to make it in singles. While Bob and Mike Bryan insisted there were no hard feelings, they respectfully disagree with his opinion, and they played Monday with the seriousness of an ATP Tour match. There was no aiming any slams toward Johns head. Instead, they picked on Patrick McEnroes volleys — he doesnt play as much these days as his more-successful older brother. The twins needed 44 minutes to win the single pro set. ' ' '
