Crazy. I get the impression that Tennis Australia invested a lot in him over the years (unlike Johanna Konta who also went from AUS to GBR last year but was never involved in Aussie tennis) so this is a slap in the face.
Except that Brydan is a spoiled brat and likely still racist so meh... the poms can have him.
Even after spending so much money on him TA probably feels this way as well. Honestly, you guys have such impressive young talent with Tomic, Kyrgios, Kokkinakis, and many more that it is really no loss at all for Australian tennis.
