Bernard Tomic in dangerous driving investigation

Tomic in dangerous driving investigation

RISING tennis star Bernard Tomic, who has a fondness for luxury sports cars, is under police investigation after a string of dangerous driving complaints.

Police sources said the distinctive bright orange BMW M3 was reported for "hooning offences".

The 19-year-old was intercepted by police in Elkorn Ave, Surfers Paradise, on Sunday night. No tickets were issued but the investigation is ongoing.

Tomic is still on his P-plate licence and had to apply for a special exemption to drive the eight-cylinder luxury sports car, worth an estimated $150,000. The exemption was granted for him to drive directly to and from tennis training at the Queen St courts, Southport.

Police will now investigate the tennis star for the dangerous driving allegations and for breaching the special conditions of his licence.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Bernard Tomic in dangerous driving investigation

Kid just wanted to drive like the men. Give him a break.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Bernard Tomic in dangerous driving investigation

An M3, eh? Well at least he has good taste.

Still though, a 19 year old kid with a $150,000 bright orange BMW? He's just asking for trouble. Dumbass. If you want a Bimmer, just get a 3 series, stay humble, and save your money.

Re: Bernard Tomic in dangerous driving investigation

You know what. I don't think he'll win a slam. If he's undisciplined like that. His temper and ego was one thing, but his off the court demeanor tells me he's not a serious person.

Not above the laws of physics... if he crashes - which is quite likely (19 yr old in M3 ) - his career will end sooner than it began.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
