Davis Cup ban turns up the heat on Tomic

Quote:
BERNARD Tomic has been suspended from Australia's opening Davis Cup tie in Taiwan next season, as the estrangement between the country's most talented young player and the tennis establishment spills over into what, for Tomic, threatens not to be such a happy new year.


It is believed that Tomic's support funding will also be cut by Tennis Australia for the start of 2013, amid growing exasperation over the 20-year-old's effort, attitude and commitment, if not his wayward off-court behaviour.

The only way they can punish Tomic is by controlling Davis Cup selection, so they are using it against him for other disciplinary issues which have nothing to do with Davis Cup. What dickheads.
Still should be able to beat Taiwan without Tomci would imagine but I can see this completely backfiring on TA in the enxt couple of years. I'm waiting for Tomic Snr to coem out some remarks soon...

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

Bernard Tomic has hit back at reports he was left out of Australia's Davis Cup team due to attitude issues. Tennis Australia director of tennis Craig Tiley was quoted on Thursday as saying Davis Cup captain Pat Rafter won't consider Tomic for the tie against Taiwan while questioning the 20-year-old's commitment to representing his country.


But Tomic later refuted the claims, insisting he told Rafter he was never available for the February clash and would instead be focusing on ATP events in the United States.
"I was never meant to play that Davis Cup tie," Tomic told the Ten Network.


"I spoke to Pat (about that).
"I'm going to use that time for training and to prepare for tournaments in America."

"I'm young and I'm learning. You get to a point where you need to stop and I think it's a good bit of advice," said Tomic.

"I'm working really hard and trying to push myself to become the best tennis player I can be.

"I've had a slippery slope the last year. It's changing me and I'll prove I'm going to be the best-ever player one day to play this game."

Tomic will get the chance to start proving the doubters wrong when he represents Australia at the Hopman Cup in Perth later this month.

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

It's in Chinese Taipei, I'm sure he didn't want to play it

I really wouldn't blame him if he did go and represent Croatia. Dokic had to constantly deal with this crap from Tennis Australia and the media, but the difference was that she and her father actually did some things wrong.. Tomic just seems to be not winning enough

Tennis Australia and Australian tennis in general is a big mess. No surprises here.

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

Tennis Australia has done much to Tomic, both in financial terms and in the game. Rightly said Stoltenberg, that is not a punishment, but simply that a well thought Tomic, what is important, tennis or Ferrari, or partying.

He can do whatever he likes off-court. None of TA's business if he drives to training with a ferrari or goes to parties at nights.

Pretty sure Tomic doesn't care. He'll keep winning and proving haters wrong.

that prove? that he will be better than Federer, McEnroe, Sampras, Agassi, Lever? So it is obvious not. To start would be in the top 20 to get into, but not the of gab.
