Bernard Tomic understands what fellow Aussie Nick Kyrgios is going through
After weeks of global condemnation against Australia’s top seeded tennis players, Bernard Tomic has finally come out admitting that he and Nick Kyrgios are giving Australian tennis a bad wrap.
The surprising admission comes just as Tomic booked himself a spot against fellow-Aussie Lleyton Hewitt in the second round of the current US Open.
In the frank interview with media, Tomic said that he has taken accountability for his actions, adding that earning millions at such a young age has not helped the cause.
The Monte Carlo-based player has had his fair share of brushes with the law in the past, including a recent wild Miami house party which will see him taken to court for on a later date.
“For sure, we’re not perfect,” Tomic said.
“I experienced a little bit more when I was younger – 18, 19 – but Nick’s obviously in the rollercoaster that I am so he has to handle it as best as he can. Only he can handle it the right way.”
“Obviously I had what I had, but I think on court I’ve improved a lot the last few years and mentally I’m pretty good on court whereas I think Nick on court struggles a little bit.”
“But he’s getting better – he just needs time, he’s a good bloke and I really wish the best for him.”
After going down to Andy Murray in the opening game of the championship, Krygios admitted that his immaturity in recent times had also gotten the better of him.
In response to a question from the press on his controversial Stan Wawrinka incident, Krygios said, “I’d like to think that I’m going to learn from it. I think I have. I think I’m on the right path,” said Krygios.
“I don’t think any of us in this room right now were perfect at 20.
