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

Leo Schlink says if assault allegations are proven, John Tomic must be thrown out of tennis for good

If the latest allegations against John Tomic are proved, he must be thrown out of tennis forever.

As the grisly details of Tomic's alleged assault on Thomas Drouet emerge, there is renewed focus on a complex man with parasitic and smothering tendencies.

Tomic senior won a virtual lottery 20 years ago when his son Bernard was born in Germany.

That windfall ballooned to multi-million dimensions as Bernard climbed to international tennis prominence.

Hefty sponsorship deals, Tennis Australia's monetary largesse and prizemoney - all earned by his son - have seen John Tomic, a former taxi driver, taken for the ride of his life.

Yet, at almost every turn, he has marked himself as a bully and an ingrate.

He luckily escaped penalty after an incident in Adelaide several years ago when he allegedly made threats against fellow junior coaches.

He is notorious for monstering journalists, mostly unsuccessfully, but he is known to tell people of desires "to crush".

A towering man, Tomic glories in standing over people - literally and metaphorically - knowing all the while he has the ultimate shield to cower behind: Bernie, Australian tennis’s great white hope.

But since he has this time allegedly crossed the line by knocking poor Drouet senseless on a Madrid street, Tomic's time as a tennis bottom feeder is over.

He should be shown the door with a unified global ban from all events, forever.

The Women's Tennis Association initiated a similar move against Australian Open and French Open winner Mary Pierce's father Jim, a nasty thug with a criminal history.

Pierce's mugshot was plastered at every entrance to tournaments where Mary played and he was barred entry.

Damir Dokic, another infamous graduate from the Tennis Parents School For The Warped, was similarly banned as he did almost everything in his powers to wreck daughter Jelena's career.

Likewise, erratic Stefano Capriati was firmly and repeatedly reminded of his obligations as his world No 1 daughter Jennifer attempted to maintain her sanity as he menaced officials and players.

John Tomic is cut from the same odious cloth.

He was cunning enough to realise how valuable his son was to Tennis Australia - and played himself into every money-making, decision-making equation.

For all that exposure to smarter people, Tomic senior has learnt nothing in his increasingly ineffectual jaunts around the world on his son's coat-tails.

He is unspeakably rude, charmless and deluded.

If any of the charges he is likely to face in a Madrid court today are eventually found to be true, he is likely to spend time in jail.

In many ways whatever the court decides – guilt or innocence – is irrelevant.

Tomic senior’s oafish behaviour is so out of touch – and dangerous – that he must not be allowed back into tennis.

Bernard will be much better off and the sport will have lost nothing apart from an overblown egomaniac with a vile temper.

No one knows exactly what's happened. Conflicting reports.

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

Best possible outcome: John Tomic is permanently banned from the tour and the Nard gets a new full-time coach who sees the potential and not the money.

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




BERNARD Tomic's hitting partner, Thomas Drouet, has outlined an incredible story of six months of verbal abuse from Tomic's dad, John, that he says erupted in violence at the weekend.

Speaking moments before Tomic Sr was to face a Madrid court last night, Drouet told the Herald Sun he had been treated like a "dog" and a "piece of s---" by Tomic Sr for months.

He said things came to a head after Tomic Sr demanded Drouet buy him a carton of milk as they were waiting to go to the airport.

He said he replied that he didn't have time.

Tensions were already high, he said. He said he saw Tomic Sr punch Bernard in the mouth during a practice session last Tuesday, leaving the player in tears.

He said that as they were about to board a flight, Tomic Sr again began abusing him, and then sacked him, saying he would not be paid; but Bernard insisted he take the flight with them.

Drouet said outside the Madrid hotel Tomic Sr asked him to walk with him.

"After 100m or something like this he was looking around and then he started again. I thought he was going to say sorry for the verbal abuse, but no.

"He spat in my face, then walked away, and said he wouldn't pay me any more.

"I said, 'OK, John, you are a real man. That's fine. Bernard will pay me'.

"And he headbutted me.

"Every day he treat me like a dog for six months, with disrespect and then this. But he need to be off the ATP (tour)."

Hope Bernie gets a real coach instead of his brutal dad, asap.

In some ways that is shocking but in other ways not that shocking. There is obviously a love-hate relationship between the two of them and so the suggestion that there is an abusive angle to their relationship isn't that surprising. It would also go a long way to explaining Bernie's, at times, awful attitude.
