Tomic fails to qualify for Australian Open

Bernard Tomic Fails In Attempt To Qualify For The Australian Open

In 2016, Tomic infamously said "would you care if you were 23 and worth over $10million?" following his controversial loss to Fabio Fogini at the Madrid Open.

143 was denied a Wildcard entry by Tennis Australia and forced to qualify for the main draw after a disastrous 2017 where he was fined $15,000 for admitting to faking an injury because ehe was bored at Wimbledon.

"All I do is count my millions. you try doing what I do", Tomic is reported as saying after the match.

After reaching the third round of the Open past year, Tomic won just eight more matches in a dismal season. "I count my millions".

'You go do what I did (on court).

Tomic, the world No.142, will further slump in the ATP rankings as he will lose his points earned from a third-round appearance at Melbourne Park previous year.

Young American was down but he refused to surrender, breaking back at love in game 9 when Tomic served for the win to prolong the match and increase his chances of performing a comeback. Lee survived an epic second set tiebreaker against his Canadian opponent to take the match 4-6 7-6 (8) 6-3.

It was a sorry sight, exacerbated by the scheduling of the 2011 Wimbledon quarter finalist and biggest name in the qualifying tournament, on court eight.

The crowd lifted with the Queenslander and he responded in the second-set tiebreak, fist-pumping his way back to the chair as he levelled the match.

A rare break point for Tomic in the ninth game roused the crowd but the Italian responded with two sensational winners.

The rain had the main role in Melbourne again on Saturday and the organizers barely managed to complete the second qualifying round matches, arranging another jammed day on Sunday with all 16 last qualifying round encounters scheduled to be played in the last minute before the start of the main draw.
