Bernard Tomic has hit Seven nightclub in Melbourne over the weekend, spending time in the DJ booth requesting LMFAO’s Sexy And I Know It. At some point the crowd apparently even started chanting his name… You may now vomit in disgust.
Bernard Tomic has been forced to withdraw from the SAP Open in San Jose to attend a court hearing on February 14 over three tickets he’s received from police after being accused of breaking the terms of his special license.

I think it’s safe to say that even though we’re only just into the first day of the second week that this has been the strangest Australian Open ever.

Bernard Tomic was the favourite coming into his match against Spaniard Fernando Verdasco but it was a match Verdasco never should have let slip away.
