Bernard Tomic will miss Australia’s Davis Cup tie after scans have shown he is suffering from a long-standing hip injury.
While scans have confirmed bad news for Bernard Tomic, it could have been a whole lot worse; Tomic has a small tear in his adductor longus, a muscle in the groin region, and could sideline him for up to three weeks.
UPDATE: Bernard Tomic has been forced to retired from his much-anticipated first-round Australian Open clash with Rafael Nadal with a leg injury on Tuesday night.
Few punters give him a chance, but Bernard Tomic believes he can turn the Australian Open on its head and send world No.1 Rafael Nadal packing in the first round.
World No.5 Juan Martin del Potro has dispatched Bernard Tomic in just 53 minutes en route to his first Apia International Sydney title.
