Bernard Tomic Fails In Attempt To Qualify For The Australian Open

Bernard Tomic has failed to qualify for the Australian Open, eliminated by Italian Lorenzo Sonego in the deciding qualifier.

Tomic was completely outplayed in the first set going down 6-1 but rallied in the second, winning the tiebreaker 7-6. 

The 25-year-old would lose a tight third and final set 6-4. 

This will be the first time in nine years the 25-year-old has failed to appear in the main draw at Melbourne Park. 

The World No. 143 was denied a Wildcard entry by Tennis Australia and forced to qualify for the main draw after a disastrous 2017, where he was fined $15,000 for admitting to faking an injury because he was bored at Wimbledon. 

Tomic is reportedly set to feature on the latest series of Channel 10's I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.
