Bernard Tomic is likely to make his return to tennis at the Monte Carlo Masters following a lengthy absence due to hip surgery.
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.
