Mental Health a Secondary Question 

My Initial response to Bernard’s Tomic’s comments dragged out my old sporting aggression reflecting media disgust about how serious we Australians treat our sport.Our never give up ethos is ingrained early in our sporting career so when I settled I reviewed the reports then asked myself is this bloke in strife mentally? 

Unfortunately that question is only asked as a secondary response after commentary has cemented opinion. 

I fell into the hype as did the scribes and that spoiled brat may be a guy struggling with the pressure of performance.

I’ve got no medical qualification nor has the media so maybe we should accept mental health is a major contributing factor in all sporting achievements as is athleticism.
