The thing is, there is always something going on with Tomic and his father and it's always negative. Tomic losing his drivers license, saying stupid things in his interviews (i.e. 'I'll be the best of all time' etc.) ... big ego, big mouth ... too bad his big ego/mouth will not win him any big tournaments. now this with his father. how can a grown up 'civil' man get into this kinda situation? I hate to judge but it looks both Tomic and his dad need to 'grow up' and get serious.

Hope Bernard gets rid of this Ahole ASAP. He's a big boy already and he has enough money, he can send his dad packing if he wants to. This can't be anything but a negative influence on Tomic's tennis.

From Tennis.com:


Report: Tomic told police his father assaulted hitting partner


The Spanish wire service EFE reports that Bernard Tomic admitted to Spanish police that it was indeed his father, John, who assaulted his hitting partner, Thomas Drouet. The incident occurred in Madrid on Saturday at 3:40 PM on a street outside of a player hotel.

Drouet was found laying on the sidewalk bleeding after John Tomic allegedly headbutted him, knocking him out cold for 20 minutes.

EFE reports that the police interviewed Bernard, who told them that it was his father who headbutted Drouet. The police then went into the hotel and arrested John. However, L’Equipe reported that Bernard told police that he was not around at the time of the incident.

John Tomic is no longer under arrest, but must stay in Spain for his court hearing, which was supposed to be on Monday.

The Herald Sun reported that Drouet said he had been treated like a “dog” and a “piece of s---” by John Tomic for months. Drouet also said that after John demanded he buy him a carton of milk before they were heading to the airport, Drouet said he didn’t have time, which lead to the assault.

“He spat in my face, then walked away, and said he wouldn’t pay me any more,” Drouet said. “I said, ‘OK, John, you are a real man. That’s fine. Bernard will pay me’. And he head-butted me. Every day he treat me like a dog for six months, with disrespect and then this. But he need to be off the ATP.”

Drouet also alleged to the newspaper that John Tomic had punched Bernard in the mouth during a practice session last Tuesday, leaving the player in tears. John Tomic told The Age that he wasn’t guilty and was acting in self-defense.

Former Aussie standout Neal Fraser told The Age, “It’s disgraceful. I’d like to know more of the details…it’s what you could say is another hiccup on the path of Bernie’s road to wherever he wants to go…to me it’s most un-Australian and unnecessary.”

Todd Woodbridge, Tennis Australia’s head of professional tennis, said on the radio that, “What’s important for us at Tennis Australia is that this allegation is thrown towards John, his dad, and not to Bernard.”

If John Tomic is found guilty, Bernard Tomic is subject to a fine of up to $100,000 and/or suspension from play for a period of up to three years, under ATP rules. It is unclear under what situation he could receive a lifetime ban.

It's not his fault if his father's an idiot. Give Bernard time, I'm sure he will drive over the speed limit again.

It is Bernard's fault though if his coach is an idiot. Player's can be held responsible for the behaviour of members of his team.

Btw, a bit curious thing is that John head-butted Drouet. If I'm not mistaken, that's something only an experienced thug/beater would do, therefore he's probably been in a number of fights/this is mostly likely not the first time he did it.

“He spat in my face, then walked away, and said he wouldn’t pay me any more,” Drouet said.

wow, this is so bad, sorry guys, but his dad has some serious mental issues. I feel bad for Tomic.

Also head butting someone so hard they are unconscious for 20 minutes. It's rare to see someone knocked out for that long from anything. I hope Drouet is seeing a neurologist.

Fining Bernard for this would be unbelievably unfair. Remember this kid has been raised by this guy. His father seems like a real piece of work, I can't imagine what Bernard had to go through in his childhood. This shit is hard enough on him right now, he is already a victim. No need to make him a financial victim aswell...


btw a big thumbs up for Drouet for standing up for himself, and for Bernard! Hope he recovers soon.

I'm not quite understanding how Bernard would be penalized for his father's actions. I guess the idea is that a player is responsible for the actions of a member of his team? Not sure about that.

If the investigation shows John Tomic did what was alleged, I do think he should be banned from the tour for awhile.

A fracture vertebrae in result of this, it's some serious brute force. I can imagine him losing consciousness on impact and fell to the floor, we know how dangerous that can be, hitting your head on a concrete floor. If he didn't get a concussion out of this, he's lucky. I feel sorry for this guy. If John Tomic doesn't get banned from ATP and if he remains to be Tomic's coach, this Thomas guy is most certainly out of a job too.
