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

Aussie Tomic's dad says headbutt was defensive

The father of Australia's top-ranked tennis player Bernard Tomic said Monday he was acting in self-defence when he headbutted his son's training partner and broke his nose in the Spanish capital.

John Tomic denied a charge of assault against Thomas Drouet in a Saturday afternoon brawl outside a hotel where players in the Madrid Masters were staying, his lawyer Carmen Dieguez told journalists at a Madrid court.

The court set a May 14 hearing for a judge to decide his guilt or innocence.

"I don't feel guilty. I did not do anything wrong," John Tomic told reporters of the fight, which has sparked consternation in the tennis world.

John Tomic struck his son's training partner with his head only because his own arms were being held by Drouet and he had to protect himself from falling over, his lawyer said.

Tomic opted for a court hearing rather than paying a fine, she told reporters.

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

John Tomic has always been a prick. I mean only last year Tomic was asking for his dad to be removed from the stadium during a match. Why the hell would Bernard do that if his dad wasn't a fucking piece of shit.

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

I feel sorry for Bernard having a father like that but he is a grown man now and it's time he broke away from his father at least in terms of his coaching team. He may feel he owes his father for getting him this far but he's clearly now doing more harm than good. He will obviously be called as a witness so it will be interesting to see what he has to say on the matter.

Well that could be a bit of a problem if the hearing is next Tuesday as Bernie should be in Rome.

Bernard has become an expert at jetting back & forward for court hearings.

Love people jumping to conclusions.

Cretins.

Edit: At least wait for the hearing to take place.

Isn't the hearing just a first appearance? If he pleads self defense, I suppose that it will take longer to sort out.

At least, it appears that Bernard was not a witness to the altercation so he won't be needed at any of the hearings. Still it's got to be a problem for him.

If it's true that John Tomic hit his son during a practice session, the ATP should take action just as the WTA has done with its players.

I wonder how much the witnesses actually saw.

You clearly don't understand the meaning of the word irony.

John Tomic is a fucking asshole innocent or not. Bernard's career will skyrocket the minute he dumps him.

Poor Bernard. Like a helpless kitten in the clutch of his father's mighty pimp hands. Next time it will be his turn to get his nose flattened.
