Australia's Olympic Chef de Mission Kitty Chiller has spoken to Tennis Australia and reiterated her tough-line stance towards misbehaving athletes.
Chiller says she will send any troublesome athletes or officials home regardless of their sport, which should come as a warning to young Australian tennis stars Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic who continue to bounce from drama to drama.
The pair are amongst a wealth of big names set to represent Australia in August at the Rio Olympics.
Chiller says she won't be afraid to make an example of anyone.
"When push comes to shove, I won't be afraid to discipline someone if they are not adhering to the standard we expect," she told News Corp Australia.
"I will be sending people home if they don't respect what they are part of."
The caution comes in the same month Kyrgios and Tomic were involved in a spat surrounding the former's failure to play in Australia's most recent Davis Cup tie against the United States.
Kyrgios was involved in further controversy this week when he copped a point penalty for an audible obscenity, before arguing the case further with the umpire.
Chiller says she has already had a conversation with Tennis Australia and team leader Alicia Molik regarding what is acceptable from the sport's youngest big names.
"It's not just tennis but some of the values are not what I would want our Olympians to exhibit," Chiller said.
"How we operate off the field is just as important as what we do on the field. I want an Australian team that Australia is proud of.
"Australians are very forgiving if we come fifth or sixth or seventh if we go and try our guts out and do it in the right way with our heads held high."
