It seems to me that he probably got plenty of $$$$, but it's probably hard to prove and papa Tomic got himself out of this mess. I didn't want to quote other guys but Papa Dokic and Papa Tomic would be best friends. Papa Dokic literally destroyed her daughter's career. and oh boy, that girl had the best breast in tennis history . ooops, did I just say that? I liked her as a player too.

I applaud to ATP/ITF for banning this psycho from all tennis tournaments.

He got paid off? Sounds like it.
Didn't one article said he can only demand a max. of $3000 compensation for the damage Tomic Sr. has caused him? I don't remember where but I'm sure I read that. Also read he is a single father and possibly do not have a job anymore. So if he took a payoff from the Tomics, I don't blame him, probably illegal but they don't need to call the payment a payoff in the book, maybe a severance package or sth to legitimize it. All my speculation of course.

I don't know about the EU, but that's illegal here. I'm sure it happens though.

The good thing is that he will not be attending tournaments any more.

I do hope Drouet goes ahead and presses charges, in other words doesn't abandon the rescheduled hearing, because it would be nice to see Tomic punished for his misdeeds, but that can wait, no problem. As I said, he won't be attending tournaments any more, and hopefully Junior ceases to work with him, at least from a tennis perspective.

That's bad. People like Tomic Sr. don't change without real punishment (if at all).

THE assault hearing involving the father of tennis ace Bernard Tomic had to be abandoned last night after the man he allegedly headbutted declined to return to Spain.

John Tomic was expected to appear in a court in Madrid tonight charged with causing "bodily harm" for attacking his son's tennis practice partner Thomas Drouet during an ATP tournament last week.

But in a dramatic turn of events, Drouet refused to return, saying he was out of the country and could not make it.

"It will be impossible for me to be there," he said just 12 hours before the expected hearing. No explanation was given by him or his legal team.

The hearing was abandoned and relisted for October but there is now no guarantee Drouet wants it to go ahead.

Tomic Sr had changed legal teams after last week failing to secure a settlement in what was supposed to have been a quick hearing and the issuing of an infringement.

Drouet, 29, also initially wanted a quick end to the issue but refused to make any concessions that he was in anyway responsible or contributed to the fracas.

Tomic Sr is believed to brought in a new legal team to defend the charges and will claim he acted in self defence, arguing it was Drouet who provoked the fight and was now exaggerating his injuries.

Drouet, who suffered a broken nose from allegedly being headbutted to the ground, also sustained a cut above the eye and was wearing a neck brace from what he said was a compounded vertebrae.

Drouet said his only aim to make a complaint to police was to ensure Tomic Sr was banned from future matches. The ATP has suspended Tomic Snr pending further investigations into his behaviour.

Tomic doesn't need fair-weather fans. So don't just start supporting Bernard now if you just feel sorry for him.

His parents don't deserve Bernard because he may not be very physically strong for tennis but they don't care.
He could buy 20 houses & John Tomic will still abuse him & anyone Bernard knows.

Many of us have abusive relatives and know some pitiful teachers & classmates too. No one asked to be born and then feel guilty for living in their painful environments.
What excuse do you have for being such a miserable human being? Please don't blame your parents.

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

This comment from Drouet in The Australian newspaper indicates that Bernard will get over this

Bernard Tomic visited his battered hitting partner in hospital in Madrid this week.

"He told me: 'I'm sorry. He went too far. It's over. I don't want him to come to tournaments anymore'," Drouet told L'Equipe newspaper.

Despite his previous public support for his father, indications of this moment have been coming for more than a year.

In March last year, Bernard asked an umpire in Miami to remove his distracting dad from the side of the court during a match against David Ferrer.

Then after losing in the first round at Wimbledon in an uncharacteristically ill-tempered display, Bernard confessed to not training hard enough amid speculation he no longer wanted his father as coach.

He and his father approached Pat Cash to coach Bernard full time, but he declined (I wonder why!!)

Hopefully this will be a new start for Bernard and I wish him every success.
