Next time Bernard Tomic loses early in a Slam, perhaps people will stop blaming his father for his shortcomings.
Instead, they should consider whether the Aussie even likes tennis in the first place.
Judging by this video, where he is supposed to be supporting his teammate in Davis Cup, we have some very clear evidence that Bernard would rather be doing anything in the world other than watching tennis.
There’s hope for Bernie yet, though. Andre Agassi really didn’t like tennis to begin with. But his overbearing father practically forced him to play the game. And, well, while it wasn’t until much later that we all learn Andre’s true feelings on the sport, he certainly made a good amount of money off something that he hates doing (something to the tune of $30 million — plus another $25 million in promotions).
So maybe that’s some motivation for Tomic to consider…
