TENNIS DAD SYNDROME….Somehow I find myself unsurprised that the junior tennis world has finally come to this: a French tennis dad is on trial for drugging his kids’ opponents by spiking their courtside drinks with a tranquilizer. One of them fell asleep at the wheel after a match and was killed.
Sadly, I’m also unsurprised that the tennis dad in question is defending himself by claiming a personality disorder. In fact, considering the well-documented semi-insanity of tennis parents worldwide, I almost believe him. I don’t do much tennis blogging these days, but this was something I wrote about on my second day as a blogger.
