We all know the Bernard Tomic's love for money. In May 2016, the Australian player had said he didn't care about losing the match against Fabio Fognini in Madrid. Interviewed by Sydney Morning Herald recently, Tomic admitted how money is a big incentive for him, 'Tennis was so fun back in the day; at a young age you want to play for the joy, the competition,' Tomic said. 'Now it's a big business, and there's just a lot of coin involved, a lot of money around, so it becomes different.'
The 24-year-old added he wanted to play for many more years. 'I still respect tennis 100%, but I also have to respect what's around it and what can set me up for life. So that's my job. My job is to play tennis until I'm done, I've had enough, and until I've made enough money.'
Tomic has big endorsements like Nike and Head, while in terms of prize money, he earned $4,776,168. He started his 2017 season losing in the first round against David Ferrer in Brisbane.

Not a good omen, I hope Bernie can have a long career, and reach the Top 10 this year - which is his goal.
He stated he was worth over $10M last year after losing to the Fog, but not sure how true that is.
