how is that possible?

it would have been very easy for a Spanish journo to follow it up yesterday and get a statement from the police so we're not left with all this "alleged" nonsense.

bunch of jokers.
Spanish journos are not even interested in the Operacion Puerta cover up scandal.

Parents can be good coaches. But it depends on the person.

Whether this story is true or not, we all know that Tomic's dad is a nutjob and he'd be better of away from him.

Imagine if Djokovic was being coached by his dad and not Vadja. Somehow I doubt he'd be as successful

I'm also of the opinion that Murray was held back by having his mother around him all the time. Its no surprise that his results improved when she gave him more space and Lendl entered the picture.

Jail the dad. He will learn some anger management after they drop the soap a couple of times. You can't just beat up people if you are mad. Good lord.

He lied on game point in the fifth set about whether he'd stopped the point to challenge or not.

The Age are now reporting that it wasn't John Tomic and he was not in jail. He talked to them and denied it all.. The plot continues.

Regardless of who did this...horrible for Drouet!
If the allegations are true, I really feel for Bernard Tomic. I imagine he must feel between loving and hating his father all the time, which will result in alot of conflict within himself. At his young age choosing for himself by banning his father is an incredibly hard thing to do. I do not envy him at all. This would also explain the results imo. What he needs is a relaxed fatherfigure a la Jack Reader!

Bernie asks umpire to remove father John from stands in Miami last year.

ARTICLE IN LOCAL PAPER - Sydney Morning Herald:

The call was utterly unexpected, but the deep, heavily accented voice unmistakeable from the first hello. It was 9.13am in Melbourne, and it was John Tomic, in the late evening from Madrid, sounding cheerful enough, despite having just read media reports of his alleged arrest in the Spanish capital, and the court appearance for assault he is due to face on Monday.

After a few pleasantries, and a query as to why this journalist had not yet weighed into the controversy of the injured hitting partner, and the father-son dust up in Monte Carlo that apparently preceded it, Tomic's message, repeated several times, was this: "I just want to say that I'm not in the jail, how they are writing."

Yes, but was he in the jail in the past few days, as suggested? No answer to that one; just a jovial promise that everything would be proved tomorrow, and then he would call back to expand further. "Hard to explain to you," he said evasively. "I'm not in the jail, just say like that. Tomorrow I will say."

More questions about what had happened, and why, were stonewalled. Then with a parting "have a nice day" he was gone. Yet if reports out of Spain are accurate, Tomic's Monday in Madrid could be distinctly unpleasant.

Accounts of an incident last week involving Bernard Tomic's 29-year-old hitting partner Thomas Drouet are everywhere. It is alleged that a headbutt from Tomic senior outside a Madrid hotel left Drouet with a broken nose and fractured vertebrae, and that the Frenchman was seen around the Caja Magica tournament site with a cast on his nose and a neck brace. Other suggestions, too, reported in the French media, that the incident was retaliation for Drouet intervening to protect Bernard Tomic from his father at the recent Monte Carlo tournament.

All unproven, as yet, but the latest incident was enough to provoke a swift reaction on social media, including this tweet from two-time former Australian Open champion Johan Kriek: "Having a parent assault another tennis player is outrageous. John Tomic should be banned for life from all ATP and WTA events! Adios"

So it may prove, and Tomic, of course, is notoriously volatile, with a long history of combustible behaviour. Tennis Australia's response was brief. "Obviously media reports regarding an incident in Madrid are very concerning," the statement read. "We are working closely with ATP officials who are investigating the incident and are unable to comment further until the full facts are known."

Footnote: With all this as a backdrop, Bernard Tomic lost his opening round match at the Mutua Madrid Open 6-3, 6-2 to Czech veteran Radek Stepanek. Which, on a strange day, was perhaps the least surprising event of all.
