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

Tomic's father is as tall as Bernard, so you probably saw him. I remember Jack Reeder alluding to how John Tomic is incredibly stupid and on top of that has some pretty bad personality traits.

My favorite line was delivered to Bernard from his father at Wimbledon qualies a few years back when B got broken in a set: "Why didn't you just hit an ace in that point?".

Hopefully he can get rid of this guy if he wants to make it into pro tennis.

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

Tomic's father is an idiot of epic proportions. I've been saying this since the start. Arrogant, obnoxious ignoramus who is one of the key reasons as to why Tomic seldom makes progress outside of Australia. The Nard will get nowhere in his career as long as his father is coaching him. For God sakes, this deplorable human being threatened to quit playing for Australia a couple of years ago.

The Nard has the talent, the Nard has the ingredients, but, unfortunately, he has a dysfunctional and problematic coaching team. Without any cogency or rationale in his team, he'll continue under-performing. I'm not placing all the heat on his father since the B-Nard is equally as unmotivated and uninspired, but something needs to be done.

Tomic [tom-ic] [tom-ic-ing]
verb
1. apply yourself for a small period of time before giving up. (I am tomicing this match).
noun
2. play exceedingly well for a month and then give fallacious promises to the world. (He performed a Tomic)

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

Tomic has the genes alright but his father is an idiot if he did indeed commit what's alleged in this thread. And even if he didn't he still sounds like one.

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

I've said again and again, Tomic needs to distance himself from his father.

Whats up with these players like Dokic and Tomic?

Yes. I don't get why Aussie-Croats have major daddy issues.

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

According to this report, Drouet was headbutted because he stepped in to help Bernard.

http://au.sports.yahoo.com/tennis/ne...rtner-reports/

Quote:
Tennis Australia and the ATP are investigating reports that Bernard Tomic’s father John, has been arrested in Madrid, Spain for allegedly assaulting his son's hitting partner.

Reports surfaced Monday morning that the outspoken father of Bernard, 20, got into an on-court altercation with his son during a training session.

Drouet reportedly stepped in to break up the confrontation, where he was allegedly headbutted by John Tomic.

It's been reported the headbutt struck with such force that Drouet was temporarily unable to breathe.

It is believed Tomic's father is still under arrest in Madrid, in custody for the last three days.

Bernard Tomic could be rubbed out of all on-court action for the remainder of the year as a result of the incident.

More to come...

I know many people here detest Tomic for his bratty behavior, but with this man for an example all his life it's amazing Bernard is as relatively well-adjusted as he is.

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

If previous police incidents did not make Tomic to improve his ways, then hopefully there is a silver lining in this Madrid incident that this finally forces him to think and act like a mature person and get motivated.

Otherwise it is a pity with all those talents..

Tomic should get Rafter as his coach. He'll whip him into shape and will take no non-sense from Tomic.

Well in the case of Tomic's father at least, do not forget he was a refugee. Which means it was accepted that conditions in his homeland at the time were life threating. Quite possibly still scared by some heavy experiences. Not an excuse, but a part of the background picture.

I agree with you. I think Tomic would be much better if he gets a regular coach and asks his dad to stay away. I joke about Tomic all the time but I'm serious about this. I really don't think that parents should be coaching their 'kids'. the only successful family thingy, I can think of, was with Seles and her father but that was sort of unique.

Parents, just get too emotionally involved. Bartoli and her dad, Dokic (a tragic story) and her dad ...

JOHN Tomic is likely to face court in Madrid today after allegedly assaulting French player Thomas Drouet as reports emerge the infamous coach might also have attacked his son Bernard in Monte Carlo last week.

John Tomic is said to have been jailed after his arrest at Madrid hotel for allegedly attacking Drouet, who is employed by the Tomics as Bernard's regular practice partner.

The shocking news comes after a Monte Carlo news outlet claimed John Tomic had struck Bernard during a public practice session in Monaco last Tuesday.

There was speculation that the alleged incident at the swish Monte Carlo Country Club was the provocation for an argument between Drouet, 29, and John Tomic.

The pair reputedly argued on the flight from Nice to Madrid.

The dispute continued once the Tomic group had checked into their hotel.

Drouet and John Tomic are alleged to have clashed in the street outside the hotel.

Drouet was left with a broken nose, fractured vertebrae and stitches after the alleged attack which was witnessed by leading players Alexandr Dolgopolov and Janko Tipsarevic.

One report claimed a man was unconscious in the street 100 metres from the tournament hotel where Tomic and his son were staying for the Mutua Madrid Open, one of Europe's elite claycourt events.

Drouet was said to be bleeding from the nose, lips and face. An unnamed witness said police and an ambulance were called.

European media reported said a man - believed to be John Tomic - was arrested at the hotel and had blood on his face when taken into custody.

Bernard Tomic subsequently lost to Czech veteran Radek Stepanek 6-3 6-2 in the first round of the Madrid Masters.
