Actually, he would have loved it. Did you even watch?

If this discussion is about Nick as an entertainer at all, you gotta watch this.
For the skill. And for the entertainment factor (as if skill at this level isn't entertaining enough).

Sorry, dunno how to embed the video so you'll have to click on the link.
Fixed.

Incredible. There is a small highlights package of some of his freakish work. I’ll post it. He can be an awesome player when on song.

He is a massive talent! And he has been misunderstood and unfairly judged by many.

Time for critics to tame it down a bit. Seriously.

Massive talent, huge twat.

For his talent, he's won nuthin'. Doesn't mean he won't one day but he has a few walls to break down.

He's distracted by his demeanour and will need to shed immaturity, idiosyncrasy and persistent disrespect to show better concentration and consistency at the game on the court.

Massive talent - tick.
Misunderstood - tick.
Unfairly judged - nah.
Apart from the fact that most of his rants are actually about nothing, there's no place for the abuse and disrespect.

If he tones it down,his Critics will.

If he carries on as always,the critics will still be talking.

The difference is,she gets the job done with a minimum of fuss,with very few antics,nay ZERO!

He just can’t help himself.He could go a long way in,but if his Media allies spout that predictably Crap line,”Silenced the Critics”,regarding him,then they are deluded as he is!

The Critics Won’t be Silenced if he keeeps carrying on like a complete Idiot!If he can Win a few tournaments without the sideshow,then and only then he can silence the critics!

In my opinion, he’s winning a few fans. I’m one of them!

He has a point. Every time he makes a scene, it’s valid.

Any argument he might have,gets lost with the way he carries on,to the point he’ll get himself suspended,after Tennis Officials say Enough is Enough!

I'm a Nick fan - just based on his tennis alone. The antics usually disappoint me.
Yes, most times, he does have a valid point. Most times.
But he occassionally goes about making his point too demonstrably. Way too much.
Imagine if he was an Essendon player disputing the umpire's decision. He might be right, but going on about it in an overboard way will only get him fined, suspended, or cost the team free kicks etc, and lose some of our respect.
Same for Nick - he's going to get fines, suspensions etc, and lose some of our respect.
He needs to learn which battles to fight, and where the line is.

Having said all that, if he doesn't care about the penalties etc, well.....who are we to pass opinion.?

Unless the penalty becomes a long suspension,then let’s see if he cares then!

He’ll give us his usual Bullsit,but deep down the stint on the sidelines will hurt.

Then when the suspension is over,he’ll probably finally admit he does care how much the penalty hurt.

Now,when does Ash play next?

He got suspended for 8 weeks in 2016. Nothing changed.
It's like his actual results...he's content with the wins he gets, not too fussed whether he wins more or not.
Same with penalties....he cops his whack for how he behaves. Call it an occupational hazard.
I think that's just Nick.

8 weeks is nothing Nudder.

Give him 8 months for starters,then we’ll see if his attitude changes.

Why should they change his attitude? The more they try to do that, the more he gives it to them.

We’ll see mate.

A good Suspension will determine which way he wants to take it from here.

A permanent Ban?

Too bad,so sad,Bye Bye!
