TA reaches out to Tomic

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

TEN­NIS Aus­tralia has of­fered as­sis­tance to the “trapped’’ Bernard Tomic, but the ball is en­tirely in Tomic’s court if he wants to re­turn to the Davis Cup fold, its di­rec­tor of per­for­mance Wally Ma­sur says.

Tomic said in a tele­vi­sion in­ter­view on Sun­day that he feels “trapped’’ and “con­fused’’ by ten­nis, which he plays only for money.

Ma­sur said TA was not con­sid­er­ing sev­er­ing ties with Tomic and he would be con­sid­ered for the semi­fi­nal if he made him­self avail­able.

“He’s just got to start to en­joy the sport again and com­mit to it again,’’ Ma­sur said. “It’s kind of more where he’s at. “We all know about his tal­ent, but self dis­ci­pline is a tal­ent too.”
