Robert Allenby Involved In Bizarre Twitter Spat With Aussie Golfer

People are genuinely wondering if he's been hacked

Robert Allenby is no stranger to controversy, having played up publicly a couple of times recently.

But his latest incident so weird it’s leaving people wondering if his Twitter has been hacked.

Allenby has appeared to have been involved in a bizarre spat with fellow Aussie golfer Aron Price that’s culminated in threats.

The argument broke out when Price tweeted drawing a link between Allenby and Ryan Lochte.

 

This led to Allenby to reply a day and a half later taunting Price:

  

Which turned in to a slanging match that culminated in apparently a threat of a fight:

  

Allenby also apparently found time to sledge some other people who had waded in:

 

Bizarre behaviour, even for a bloke like Allenby.

Nick Kyrgios Goes On Racquet Smashing Rampage

Boy OH BOY!

(Image: YouTube)

Nick Kyrgios smashed three racquets in one outburst before being knocked out of the Cincinnati Masters in the second round.

The Australian star lost his temper after losing a first-set tiebreak and took it out on his tools, picking up the racquets from his courtside seat and whacking them on the hardcourt surface one after the other.

Making matters worse, he later blew a 5-2 lead and a match point in the third-set tiebreaker to lose 7-6 (7-2) 4-6 7-6 (8-6) to Croatian teenager Borna Coric, making an early exit less than two weeks out from the US Open.

It wasn't all bad news for Australia on Wednesday, as countryman Bernard Tomic claimed his highest-ranked scalp in seven months when he beat Belgian world No.11 David Goffin to reach the third round.

But it was the Kyrgios blow-up that grabbed all the attention.

The 21-year-old sent down 24 aces in the loss as he looked to continue a five-match winning streak that included his second career title in Atlanta.

He regained his composure from his post-set assault on his racquets to break the 19-year-old Coric late in the second set, before falling apart late in the deciding tiebreaker.

Tomic dropped his first set against Goffin, before rebounding to win 3-6 7-5 6-4 in 110 minutes.

It marks the first time the Australian has beaten a player inside the top 12 since he downed Kei Nishikori at the Brisbane International in January.

He will now have to repeat the feat.

Nishikori will be his next opponent after Japan's world No.7 beat Russian Mikhail Youzhny 6-3 6-2 to advance.

Tomic will aim to keep his serve on song for the contest. Against Goffin he managed to send down 16 aces and landed 65 per cent of first serves to set up the win.

It was a much-needed victory ahead of the US Open after he lost in his first match at the Los Cabos Open in Mexico last week.

Fellow-Australian John Millman didn't fare so well on Wednesday (Thursday AEST), beaten by eighth seed Dominic Thiem 7-5 6-1.

Meanwhile Coric will now face Rafael Nadal after the third-seeded Spaniard sprang back to form, beating Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas 6-1 7-6 (7-4).

Second seed Stan Wawrinka was forced to battle hard on return from a back injury to beat US teen Jared Donaldson 2-6 6-3 6-4 in a rain-interrupted match.

Seventh-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga also beat American Reilly Opelka 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3).

Conor McGregor Rips Into John Cena And The WWE

WHACK.

(Image: Getty)

Conor McGregor has taken another swing at the WWE, targeting the most popular man in the company, John Cena.

McGregor has been in a war of words with the wrestling company of late and, during a UFC 202 promotion, opened up the issue again.

"What's the main guy? John Cena?" he said.

"He's 40. He's 40 years of age. He's walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He's a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother f**ker."

The UFC featherweight champ suggested he had respect for the "dons of the game" like Vince McMahon, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Ric Flair, but the contemporary wrestlers bothered him.

"I'm just speaking the truth," he said. "That new age of those guys are absolute dweebs.

"They just seem messed up in the head. I don't know what it is. When I listen to them talk, when I listen to them carry themselves, they just don''t seem right in the head. That might have been a bit rudeness for me to say, but again: It ain't trash talk, it's truth talk."

Jared Tallent Awarded Another Gold Medal After Doping Ban

Get up, Jared!

(Image: Getty)

After sensationally receiving a belated gold medal for his performance at the London Olympics, Australian walker Jared Tallent has been given another win.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport dismissed an appeal by disgraced Italian walker Alex Schwazer, meaning that Tallent has been given the gold medal for the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships in Rome in May.

Schwazer has been handed an eight-year suspension, and Athletics Australia chief Phil Jones said it was a fair result.

“There is no place for doping in sport and Schwazer has a history of breaching the rules for his own personal benefit,” Jones said.

“It is appropriate that such decisive action be taken when such disregard for clean sport occurs.

“This is once again vindication for Jared Tallent, who will be elevated to the gold medal position in the men’s 50km walk at the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships.

“His dedication to fighting for a level playing field for all athletes is exemplary and should be applauded.”

Tallent will have the opportunity to defend his 50km Olympic title in Rio next week.

UFC star Conor McGregor has whacked Brock Lesnar and the WWE, calling them a bunch of "messed up pussies".

"For the most part, those WWE guys are pussies, to be honest," McGregor said. "They're messed up pussies, if you ask me.

"Fair play to Brock (Lesnar), he got in and fought, but at the end of the day he was juiced up to the f**king eye balls, so how can I respect that?"

He followed up with this response on Twitter.

Fair to say we won't we seeing him in a WWE ring soon.
