Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios could miss out on representing Australia at the Olympic Games in Rio if their behaviour on and off the tennis court does not improve. Both players have been put on notice by Australian chef de mission Kitty Chiller after Tomic drew heavy criticism following his exit from the Madrid Open when, on match point against Fabio Fognini, he held the racquet by the strings and did not offer a return to the Italians serve.Asked about the incident by the Gold Coast Bulletin, the world No 22 responded: I dont care about that match point - would you care if you were 23 and worth over $10m? Tomic effectively gave up match point against Fabio Fognini by attempting to return the ball with his rackets handle After the Australian Olympic Committees AGM, Chiller said: I think it was appalling behaviour. It goes against every value that all the Olympians live by, it goes against everything that weve been trying to build in this team.I would not want to see any of our Olympic team members behave in that way.Chiller said both Tomic and Kyrgios, who has a history of verbally abusing opponents, umpires and fans, were just two of the potential Rio Games athletes who were being monitored for their behaviour. Every athlete is under the microscope now, she added. Theres a few athletes that are on watch and those two names are among them.Tomic has been accused of tanking, or failing to try his best, in the past including in a loss to Andy Roddick at the 2012 US Open. Chef de Mission of the Australian Olympic Team for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Kitty Chiller has warned Tomic and Kyrgios His 28-minute loss to Jarkko Nieminen in Miami in 2014 remains the quickest ever on the ATP Tour, while he was also involved in a spat with Davis Cup team-mate Kyrgios in March.Tennis Australia has until late June to nominate its team for Rio, with world No 21 Kyrgios and Tomic the countrys highest-ranked players and best chance for a medal. Tomic shows his emotion against Fabio Fognini But Chiller was keen to point out that Tennis Australia can only nominate players of good standing within their sport, while the AOC has the final say.Its their responsibility to determine whether its appropriate to nominate them, she said. If any athlete from any sport is nominated, we look at everything ... including behaviour, including the disrepute clause. Australias Nick Kyrgios holds his shirt in his mouth during his mens singles match against Czech Republics Tomas Berdych We have the ability to take that into consideration whether we proceed to select the nomination or not.Based on the last 48 hours, all I can comment on is that is not behaviour that I would want any team member in a team that Im responsible for to exhibit.

Subban and Matt Duchene will be the two skaters sitting out the teams opening game.SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Barring a change of heart from the league offices, Sacramento centre DeMarcus Cousins has played his last game of the season. He definitely went out with a bang. Cousins recorded his eighth straight double-double with 35 points and 15 rebounds but picked up his 16th technical foul of the season late in the fourth quarter of the Kings 106-103 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night. By NBA rules, Cousins must sit out Sacramentos final regular season game at home against Phoenix on Wednesday. "Im not going to talk about it," said Cousins, who had sat for several minutes in front of his locker with his head hung low. Kings coach Mike Malone was willing to discuss it and said the team might contact the NBA to get the technical removed, citing Cousins most recent behaviour. The technical was his first since Feb. 25 and ended the longest stretch of his career without one. "I feel for him," Malone said. "He has made a concerted effort to handle his emotions and not get that last tech. Well try to do whatever we can to get that rescinded but its disappointing because I know it meant a lot to him." The Kings trailed by 11 in the third quarter and were down 82-81 before going on an 11-2 run to go in front for good. Cousins started the surge with a thunderous dunk and McCallum followed with consecutive 3-pointers, one from the left corner and the other from the right. The Timberwolves pulled to 100-98 with 1:13 left to play on three free throws by Kevin Love after Cousins was charged with the technical foul. Cousins then drove the baseline and dunked with 24.2 seconds remaining, helping Sacramento end a five-game losing streak while evening the season series with Minnesota. "Were still a team trying to grow and find ourselves," said Cousins, breaking his silence. "I think we took steps forward today. Weve been in those situations a couple times this season. Sometimes it went well, sometimes it didnt. We did a pretty good job tonight of handling the siituation and overcoming adversity.dddddddddddd" J.J. Barea missed a 3-pointer and Love was off on a 16-foot jumper in the final 20 seconds for the Wolves. Love had 43 points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota after sitting out Fridays 112-110 win over Houston because of a hyperextended right elbow. "Our defence just wasnt good enough in the second half," Love said. "Offensively we were fine, but they kind of went on a run and never looked back." The Timberwolves lost after leading 62-51 with eight minutes left in the third in what might have been former Kings coach Rick Adelmans final appearance at Sleep Train Arena. The 67-year-old Minnesota coach remains a beloved figure in the states capital, having guided the Kings from 1998-2006. Sacramento made the playoffs in each of his eight seasons and havent been back since. Adelman clearly has fond memories of those glory days in Sacramento and hes been back numerous times as a visiting coach as well. This game, however, might hold special significance since it might be Adelmans last. He has taken time away from coaching each of the past two years to take care of his wife, Mary Kay, who has had health problems. Speculation around the NBA now is that Adelman will step away for good at the end of the season. "Ive always said that the eight years here were a tremendous experience," Adelman said. "We had a lot of fun, we had really good team and the fans during that run were terrific." Minnesota trailed by 11 early before going on a 12-0 run in the second quarter capped by Dante Cunninghams three-point play that put the Wolves up 40-32. Love finished the half with 13 points, including two free throws to give Minnesota a 52-47 halftime lead. The Timberwolves extended their lead to 62-51 with 8:03 left in the third, then Sacramento went on its big run.
