Bernard Tomic fails to secure spot in Australian Open, boasts about money anyway

1 min read

Well that was weird.

Australian tennis star Bernard Tomic, 25, has failed to secure a spot in the Australian Open after losing to unknown Italian player Lorenzo Sonego (ranked 281st).

Bernard lost in a 6-1 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 defeat on Sunday, often not even moving to return serves. 

Despite his performance, the athlete was still able to boast to press about his money:

"I just count money, that's all I do. I count my millions," he said.

"You go do what I did (on court). Bye bye."

The remarks are oddly similar to those he made when losing at Wimbledon last year:

"You probably don't like me but, at only 24, you guys can only dream about having what I have," he said at the time.

"End of the day, don't like me or whatever. Just go back dreaming about your dream car or house while I go buy them."

Bernard is currently ranked 142nd in the world for tennis and amount -10 in good sportsmanship/being humble.
