Australian tennis player beaten up for losing. It is suspected to be betting related

Australian tennis player beaten up for losing. It is suspected to be betting related

Once hailed as a rising star, Bernard Tomic clinched two junior Grand Slam titles early in his career. The Australian's initial foray into professional tennis was promising, propelling him into the top 20. However, his journey was marred by a lack of consistency and, seemingly, passion for the sport. Tomic even made a brief appearance on a reality show, from which he promptly exited.

Now at 30, Tomic languishes outside the top 200 and seems unlikely to revisit his former glory. Recently, he competed in a Challenger event in Turkey, facing off against the Dominican Republic's Nick Hardt in the second round. Despite leading 4-0 and 40:15 in the deciding third set, Tomic succumbed to a 6:7 tie-break defeat. Regrettably, this loss had repercussions off-court. An online video has surfaced, allegedly showing Tomic being assaulted, presumably a consequence of someone's ill-fated wager on the match.
