This week on Tennis Channel Live, fans are getting a closer look at The Ten, a countdown series examining groups like hot heads, trailblazers, rivalries and upsets.

The hotheads countdown was dissected closely on Thursday by Tracy Austin, Brett Haber, Prakash Amritraj and Jimmy Arias, so let's break down each fit-throwing ATP star that made the cut. 


David Nalbandian

In his defense, Nalbandian only really ever had one major blowup in his career. But he made it count by getting defaulted from the Queen's Club final in 2012. 


Bernard Tomic

The Australian has had more downs than ups in his career, largely thanks to an overall bad attitude. 


Jeff Tarango

Like Nalbandian, Tarango really only flipped out meteorically one time but he'll never, ever, ever live it down. 


Nick Kyrgios

Many might argue that Kyrgios should be way closer to No. 1 on this list. 


Goran Ivanisevic

The Croatian had a way of making his meltdowns both entertaining and kind of poetic. 


Marat Safin

The two-time Grand Slam champion was as fiery as he was powerful on court, yet sometimes his temper cost him wins. 


Jimmy Connors

Though more famous for his passionate spirit than his negative energy, Connors wasn't afraid to let it out and say how he really feels. 


Fabio Fognini

The Italian has been in some hot water with the ATP a few times, but somehow his charm still comes through. 


Ilie Nastase

The Romanian will forever be synonymous with being "nasty" and it's a reputation he's carried over into his Fed Cup coaching career. 


John McEnroe

No one is better suited for the top job of tennis' "bad boy" than McEnroe. 

You can watch more of The Ten with live commentary on Tennis Channel Live each weekday at 12 p.m. EST and catch it again at 8 p.m.
