Top 10 Tennis Scandals

I Miss My Hair.

1. Andre Agassi

Kind of retrospective scandal, but Andre’s dabbling with illegal substances in his confessional autobiography, gets him in. We all make mistakes so at least he made up for it.

Max Zorin?

Max Zorin?

2. Boris Becker

Boom Boom couldn’t stay out of trouble with the ladies and fathered a child as a result of an ‘encounter’ at a London restaurant. His hair is not the only thing that stays up for long periods of time!

From Russia with a Wager

3. Nikolay Davydenko

When is being a millionaire enough? Koyla was involved in a bizarre match that got law enforcement involved after suspicious betting patterns. We may never know what was going on, but a cloud over his integrity has persisted since then.

Catch Me If You Can.

Catch Me If You Can.

4. Bernard Tomic

Bernie got into a car chase in his yellow sports car  that ended with a 3 hour stand off with police at his home. I would have pulled him over just for the haircut.

Oh, F***You!

Oh, F***You!

5. Jeff Tarango

A classic YouTube clip by now, Jeff got ejected at Wimbledon but it was his wife’s outburst at his press conference that cemented this tennis scandal.

You Say What?

6. Lleyton Hewitt

Rusty lights a fire under anything, but he got into choppy waters while after playing James Blake one year for claiming racial bias. Know when to hold ’em  and know when to fold ’em Lleyton.

You Want Some?

7. Daniel Koellerer

He makes pretty much any bad behavior list and while recently banned for life for illegal betting, getting choked by Stefan Koubek has to be my favorite Crazy Dani moment. Bond villain auditions next?

Offside!

Offside!

8. David Nalbandian

Never too far from controversy, David lost it in the final of Queens in 2012 and kicked a line judge ‘by accident’ in frustration. Maybe he got confused playing on grass and thought it was a soccer pitch?

Gettin' Juiced.

Gettin’ Juiced.

9. Wayne Odesnik

Mr. HGH not only took growth hormone but smuggled it, then denied it. Way to endear yourself to the other players. Buddies with Lance Armstrong by any chance?

You Can Tell.

You Can Tell.

10. Bob Hewitt

More than a scandal, this guy is a criminal. You can Google him later and request that the Tennis Hall of Fame kick him out.
