Benard Tomic’s life just got a little more interesting, if that’s possible. Though this time it’s not Bernard who’s creating the problems in the Tomic family, it’s his father.
According to reports, the combustible John Tomic exploded earlier this week in Madrid at a practice partner of Bernard’s. The remarkable story has it that John Tomic head-butted Thomas Drouet on the practice courts breaking the 29-year-old Frenchman’s nose!
The incident left Drouet, who is not on the ATP computer at the moment, in a neck brace with a cast on his nose and John Tomic in jail!
The ATP is said to be reviewing the incident and John could very well be suspended from the tour for this assault.
The controversy didn’t help Bernard any either, the 20-year-old lost today to Radek Stepanek in the first round of Madrid. Since Australia Tomic has a total of six wins in tournament play.
Here’s more on the case from Matt Cronin:
