Bernard Tomic is bored with tennis, and he has no problem saying so publicly. This was his response after losing a first-round match to Germany’s Mischa Zverev at the 2017 Wimbledon Championship. The world No. 27 player had an easy win over the Australian in a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 victory. The explanation for Tomic’s loss was that he just didn’t have the mental capacity to push for a win.
Tomic said in his post-match press conference that he just couldn’t find his momentum out on the court on Tuesday at the All England Tennis Club. According to ESPN, the 24-year-old tennis pro suggested that it was mostly his mental state that was the issue. He had also called for a trainer in the middle of the match for supposedly having a back injury, but Bernard admitted that he only did that to break up the momentum.
