I was a big fan of her game after her run at the AO in 2005 and she had the potential to be a top 10 player. It's sad the way her career ended before she had a chance to make a big impact.

Tennis parents are officially the worst parents ever btw.
Statistically you are totally incorrect.
How many tennis players are there out there and how many do you hear about?
A very small minority - only a handfull are a problem. Most are loving and supportive of their children.
You just don't hear about them.
Just as in life, you only hear the bad stuff on the news.

Re: John Tomic allegedly arrested for breaking nose on Bernie's HP

Makes you wonder was Bernard playing tennis for his Dad or for the love of the game. Past performances indicate he was playing for his Dad, not for the love of the game. Time will tell.

Re: John Tomic allegedly arrested for breaking nose on Bernie's HP

Tennis media & ATP don't pay attention to bad parents until horrible crimes are committed to harm tennis "image".

Many offsprings are subtly abused by
parents who are stupid hypocrites.
Parents beg for ego inflation and money is always their obsession.
They act like they don't interfere with their kids' decisions but they tell their kids how amazing they are every day. They deluded them to the point where they don't try in tennis, etc.

The worse insecure tyrannical parents want to live through the children. Subtle abusers and criminal abusers are still abusers.
His parents don't deserve Bernard because he may not be very physically strong for tennis but they don't care.
He could buy 20 houses & John Tomic will still abuse him & anyone Bernard knows.

Many of us have abusive relatives and know some pitiful teachers & classmates too. No one asked to be born and then feel guilty for living in their painful environments.

I don't think that's at play here. I mean even before this incident John Tomic was seen as a disgrace and he even encouraged Bernard in his disputes with Australian police over the traffic violations. A calculating person who cared only about money would put on a better public face himself, and pressure his son to do the same.

How much money have they already lost in potential sponsor deals? The big bucks don't come from prize money, they come from your endorsement contracts. The dad is just an egomaniac who enjoys being a thug for its own sake.

This from the NYTimes, ATP and ITF (and RG) have banned John Tomic.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: John Tomic allegedly arrested for breaking nose on Bernie's HP

This comment from Drouet in The Australian newspaper indicates that Bernard will get over this

Bernard Tomic visited his battered hitting partner in hospital in Madrid this week.

"He told me: 'I'm sorry. He went too far. It's over. I don't want him to come to tournaments anymore'," Drouet told L'Equipe newspaper.

Despite his previous public support for his father, indications of this moment have been coming for more than a year.

In March last year, Bernard asked an umpire in Miami to remove his distracting dad from the side of the court during a match against David Ferrer.

Then after losing in the first round at Wimbledon in an uncharacteristically ill-tempered display, Bernard confessed to not training hard enough amid speculation he no longer wanted his father as coach.
more here http://www.theaustralian.com.au/spor...-1226638713860

He and his father approached Pat Cash to coach Bernard full time, but he declined (I wonder why!!)

Hopefully this will be a new start for Bernard and I wish him every success.

What excuse do you have for being such a miserable human being? Please don't blame your parents.

Re: John Tomic allegedly arrested for breaking nose on Bernie's HP

Tomic doesn't need fair-weather fans. So don't just start supporting Bernard now if you just feel sorry for him.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

Re: John Tomic allegedly arrested for breaking nose on Bernie's HP

THE assault hearing involving the father of tennis ace Bernard Tomic had to be abandoned last night after the man he allegedly headbutted declined to return to Spain.

John Tomic was expected to appear in a court in Madrid tonight charged with causing "bodily harm" for attacking his son's tennis practice partner Thomas Drouet during an ATP tournament last week.

But in a dramatic turn of events, Drouet refused to return, saying he was out of the country and could not make it.

"It will be impossible for me to be there," he said just 12 hours before the expected hearing. No explanation was given by him or his legal team.

The hearing was abandoned and relisted for October but there is now no guarantee Drouet wants it to go ahead.

Tomic Sr had changed legal teams after last week failing to secure a settlement in what was supposed to have been a quick hearing and the issuing of an infringement.

Drouet, 29, also initially wanted a quick end to the issue but refused to make any concessions that he was in anyway responsible or contributed to the fracas.

Tomic Sr is believed to brought in a new legal team to defend the charges and will claim he acted in self defence, arguing it was Drouet who provoked the fight and was now exaggerating his injuries.

Drouet, who suffered a broken nose from allegedly being headbutted to the ground, also sustained a cut above the eye and was wearing a neck brace from what he said was a compounded vertebrae.

Drouet said his only aim to make a complaint to police was to ensure Tomic Sr was banned from future matches. The ATP has suspended Tomic Snr pending further investigations into his behaviour.
