Um, good morning. Well, let me say

this to you - he displays, in my

observations, he displays all the

characteristics of sexual addiction.

How serious is this problem?

Obviously, it has an impact on his family and also colleagues.

Absolutely. Sexual addiction,

unfortunately, is one of those

topics that is very - it's

discussed very little in our

society. However, it is a major

problem. And it has very

devastating consequences, just the

same as alcohol, drugs and gambling

do. How widespread is the problem

and what are some of the key

warning signs, I suppose, that you

can identify it with? I actually

believe it is very common in our

society. And I think in large it's

not recognised, particularly

because there's a lot of shame

about talking about sexual

addiction. But some of the characteristics would be a

recurrent failure to resist

impulses to engage in specific

sexual behaviours. Frequent

engaging in those behaviours to a

greater extent or over a longer

period of time than intended, you

know. You can see the

characteristics there already.

Persistent desire or unsuccessful

efforts to stop or reduce and

control the behaviours, a

preoccupation with the behaviour

or the rituals around that. We'll

have to leave it there. Thanks for

This is also a dose of sour grapes

and I think people will thank see that. Melbourne's Andrew Bogut has made Australian basketball history today after being chosen first overall in the 2005 NBA draft. It's the moment Andrew Bogut became an instant millionaire.

The Milwaukee Bucks select Andrew Bogut from Australia. The 2.13m-tall giant the first Australian to be number one pick in America's national basketball draft. It's surreal to me. Still, I think I'll wake up tomorrow morning and have a better realisation for what's going on, but this is just a dream for me come true. His contract with the Milwaukee Bucks reportedly earning him a staggering $18 million in the first three years as well as tens of millions in sponsorship deals. This is a huge night in the life of Andrew Bogut. But it seems it's Bogut's mouth, not his money, that's dominating the headlines. The 20-year-old star making one arrogant gaffe after the other. The so-called $100 million man was trying to explain yesterday's stinging attack on former Australian basketball star Luc Longley.

He's one of the best players to come out of Australia. He's a very good player. He's won three championship rings. I just don't like to be compared to another player. He says what he really meant was that they are different players. But then this - an attack on Australian basketball in general. If you want to play in the NBA or Europe you don't want to go through the NBL. It's too much of a long process and it's not the best coaches in the world.

Still, in America he is being hailed a future king of the court. It'll be good to just start playing and let people comment on my game instead of off court. In Madison Square Gardens in New York, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. In his home town of Melbourne friends and family watched on as the pick was announced. After a sleepless night,

Defending champ Maria Sharapova defending champ, Maria Sharapova, For the first time, this Wimbledon didn't breeze past her opponent. Big-serving Russian Nadia Petrova pushing her compatriot with blasting power. The first set going to a tense tie break with Sharapova stamping her class. COMMENTATOR: Gee, that's good play. The 18-year-old eventually taking the opener in 55 minutes. (Sharapova screams) "Come on," she yells. Sharapova's own grunt was evident in the second. The number two seed winning her 22nd consecutive match on grass. UMPIRE: Game, set and match Sharapova. Finishing off the match is tough, you know, it gives me shivers all down my body. She'll now play 2-time winner Venus Williams in the semis, who was unstoppable in the first set against Mary Pierce, winning 6-0. The second wasn't as one-sided - Pierce improving ten-fold, pushing a tie break. APPLAUSE Pierce wasn't put off by the loud grunting by Venus Williams there. It was tennis at its best, with Williams coming out on top, 12-10 in the tie break.

with the French number three seed too good for Russian Anastasia Myskina. Thai Neave, Ten News. Melbourne will welcome captain David Neitz back to the goal square

for Saturday night's crucial round 14 clash with the Lions in Brisbane. The 30-year-old will return inside three weeks from his broken cheek. 16 days since surgery to lift the left side of his shattered face, David Neitz says he's ready to return to footy's toughest stage. It's not 100% normal, but as far as pain goes and things like that, it feels fine. Neitz is wary of physical contact to his still-swollen face, but he's confident he'll stand up to the Lions defence. I spoke to the surgeon, and the surgeon... There's a couple of steel plates in there, so he reckons it's stronger now than it's ever been. And club heavyweights have welcomed the league's radical decision to encourage Sydney youngsters to play AFL. Under the plan, likely NSW teenagers would be targeted with footy apprenticeships. If they show enough promise, clubs would be allowed to draft them to senior level. It's an opportunity to show towns, cities, cities like Broken Hill, Wagga, Albury, the whole lot, there's a chance for a young kid there to be on an AFL list. Tim Hodges, Ten News.

The NSW State of Origin team has assembled this morning to begin preparations for next Wednesday's decider against Queensland. But the Blues have their share of problems. The fitness of captain Danny Buderus who has a foot injury is one and the other concern is Parramatta forward Nathan Hindmarsh who faces the judiciary tonight on a contrary conduct charge. If he doesn't beat the charge he will miss the big match. I think he's been a little bit stressed and frustrated. He wants to play in the third Origin. We'll just see what happens later on. Next in Ten News, a look at the weather around the nation.

Now for a look at the national weather. That brings you up to date with all the news. I'm Natarsha Belling. Good afternoon. Supertext Captions by the Australian Caption Centre.
