Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

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.

Re: Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

Falling back on money as the incentive to continue playing is only an excuse he invents to overcome the bitterness of failing to become a rock star in the tennis world.

This works for everyone who fails to fulfill his dream, and many later overcome this stage, admitted failure and start over, but tennis is a competitive field with little time for one player, which makes me not unhappy as I do not like him that much.

Re: Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

Slams are one of the quickest ways to the big bucks so I think this lad's got his priorities in order

Why lose in the first round of AO for $50k when the next round pays even more

etc

Re: Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

Maybe one day he will work out that the way to maximise your earnings is to win, just image how many slams and big events with millions of dollars in attached prize money he has already missed out on.

Re: Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

Waste of a ranking. Feel pretty bad for those who wish they had his talent and would've made the most of it.

Give Wawrinka 1 chance and he takes it. Give Murray 10 chances and he blows them all.

Re: Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

Well he ain't making that much this year if he doesn't win. Clay is coming soon and it will be a dark period until grass season.

Re: Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

Bernard is not good enough to crack the top 10.

I've been a fan for over 6 years now, but it's clear to me that there are too many holes / limitations in his game.

Re: Bernard Tomic: I will play until I've made enough money

I read that article and initially I had the same reaction as most of the posters here but then I thought about it we all work for money and we work until we've got enough for post-retirement life. Isn't it the same as him here?
