The case against Bernard Tomic’s deranged father, John Tomic, keeps getting worse. After assaulting Bernard’s practice partner this weekend, the victim, Thomas Drouet, has detailed a very long, sordid history of abuse by the senior Tomic.
In a damning report from the Herald Sun, Drouet reveals John Tomic treated him like a dog for months and months, spat in his face and refused payment. He also watched John punch Bernard in the jaw, an incident that took place just last week in Madrid and one that left the 20-year-old in tears.
The story came to light when reports of John Tomic head-butting Drouet surfaced yesterday. Drouet said the incident occurred Saturday afternoon while he and John were walking outside of their Madrid hotel.
Drouet was taken by ambulance for treatment. With a neck brace and a his nose bandaged, the 29-year-old Frenchman will be unable to earn practice money the next few weeks to allow the injuries to heal.
Meanwhile, John Tomic, who’s had a history of misconduct, was arrested and reportedly already spent time in jail. He now faces court hearings in Madrid and will likely receive severe disciplinary action and a potential life ban from the ATP.
In all of this, one has to feel very, very sorry for Bernard who’s had to suffer so long with this sicko father.
