OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: Tennis coach JOHN TOMIC "has been banned from Roland Garros" as his son, BERNARD, prepares to contest next week's French Open. Although Team Tomic "has employed a new hitting partner" to replace the wounded THOMAS DROUET, there is not, as yet, "any suggestion of a coaching change" (THE AGE, 5/22). ... British Paralympian DAVID WEIR "has refused to sign a contract with UK Athletics" after he accused the governing body of lacking ''respect'' toward his long-term coach JENNY ARCHER. Weir is angry that Archer "was overlooked for the position" of heading Britain’s wheelchair racing program, which was offered instead to Australian JENNI BANKS (TELEGRAPH, 5/23). ... Veteran ABC broadcaster DAVID MORROW "has been spared the sack," but will need to complete training and cultural awareness programs before returning to the airwaves. Morrow was "suspended following comments he made before the match between St. George Illawarra and Manly on May 6" (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 5/24).
