Tomic travels back home
Bernard has returned to the Gold Coast in time to see the Australian Open Trophy tour visit his hometown.
The Queensland teenager got his hands on the Sir Norman Brookes Challenge Cup during the trophies visit to the Gold Coast on Friday.
Tomic finished his 2011 season last week at the ATP Paris Masters, where he fell in the first round of qualifying to Frenchman Nicholas Mahut.
His breakthrough year included a stunning run through qualifying to the last eight at Wimbledon, quarterfinal appearance in Tokyo and third round showings at the Shanghai Masters and the Australian Open.
Tomic will begin his 2012 campaign at the Brisbane International in January.
