Tomic court time de­layed


AUS­TRALIAN ten­nis ‘‘bad boy’’ Bernard Tomic has de­layed his crim­i­nal court ap­pear­ance in Florida, pre­vent­ing a clash with the first day of the US Open.

Tomic’s case re­lat­ing to charges from a wild night out in Mi­ami was due to be heard in court to­mor­row, but has been re­as­signed to Septem­ber 21 – even though he was not re­quired to ap­pear.

Tomic – who spent yesterday on the Flush­ing Mead­ows prac­tice courts in New York with fel­low bad boy Nick Kyr­gios and men­tor Lley­ton He­witt – told The Sun­day Mail he would fig­ure the court case out af­ter the Open. Tomic (pic­tured) will meet Bos­nia’s Damir Dzumhur – ranked 94th – in the first round, but then could face He­witt – a tour­na­ment wild­card – in the sec­ond.
