His dad denies it and claims it was self-defence.

They announced just now that Tomic's father has been charged after the incident with Bernie's hitting partner. He's due in court next week.

I still feel sorry for Tomic. He isn't perfect, God knows, but his father isn't the ideal role model is he? It must be so humiliating for the kid to be dragged into all this. I suppose it isn't the first time really, I remember when Tommy Haas's wife slapped an official at Wimbledon a number of years ago, but somehow there seems to be something almost inevitable about this. Tomic Snr doesn't exactly come across as Mr. Normal.

My memory could be wrong but I think he built up a number of code violations and got defaulted (he was a bit hot headed but I enjoy his commentary and analysis on 5live at Wimbledon) so his very gallic french wife marched on in high dudgeon and slapped him one. I t was same year Henman got defaulted for hitting a ball girl (accidentally) so press had a ball with all the extra stories they were getting.

I do feel sorry for Tomic as well - you do wonder if attacking his son might be a facet of his coaching technique as well. With a father like that no wonder the lad's so screwed up.

I'm sure it was Haas's wife. Tarango accused an umpire of being biased at Wimbledon in 1995. If I'm wrong I apologise to Mrs Haas lol.

Wimbledon Takes a Slap in the Face : Tennis: Tarango becomes first to walk off court, then accuses umpire of favoritism.
July 02, 1995|JULIE CART | TIMES STAFF WRITER
WIMBLEDON, England — A quiet day of tennis turned bizarre Saturday, when American Jeff Tarango was defaulted after walking off a court during his third-round singles match, then later accused an umpire of fixing matches for other players.

In a remarkable postmatch news conference, Tarango, of Manhattan Beach, made several serious and at times rambling accusations against chair umpire Bruno Rebeuh of France, whom Tarango called "corrupt." In another strange twist, Tarango's wife caught up to Rebeuh after the match, confronted him and slapped him.

But I'm now off to google Mrs Haas as well! lol
p.s Angie it is on Youtube! (tho haven't found the wife slapping bit yet, must be somewhere am sure it was shown on tv at the time)

A tennis journalist just posted this on twitter...

Djokovic, who just lost to Dimitrov, says he didn't touch racket for 12 days after Monte Carlo because of ankle issues.

Is it just me? I didn't see him struggling with his ankle in MC.

Laura seeks new coach after split from mentor as Brit prepares for Ivanovic clash

 
Laura Robson is on the lookout again for a new coach after parting company with Croatian mentor Zeljko Krajan at the start of the Madrid Open.

The exact timing of the split is unclear, but Krajan was initially with her in the Spanish capital for this week's event, which has seen the Wimbledon-based teenager come back to form after a lean spell and earn a place in the third round.

On Monday she scored a career-best victory over world No 4 Agnieszka Radwanska.

Robson has ended the partnership with the current Croatian Davis Cup Captain and one time coach of former world No 1 Dinara Safina, having teamed up with him immediately following last summer's Olympics.

Their time together has seen some eye-catching wins over former Grand Slam champions and entry into the world's top 50 mixed in with inconsistency and less impressive results against lower ranked players.

For her last 16 encounter against former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic she will use the services of vastly experienced Dutch coach Sven Groeneveld, who works for adidas and is available to work with all their contracted players, such as Robson.

I don't like the Spanish crowd, French crowd and the crowd that were there in the Federer/Andy match at WTF last year. They should not be allowed to watch tennis.

  Haven't checked, but isn't Ivanovic Adidas as well, in which case sponsor coaching wouldn't be available to either?
