Bernard Tomic reveals he wishes he never got into tennis

He’s the bad boy sports star who’s better known for his antics off the court than on the court.

And before heading into the jungle for his stint on I’m A Celebrity….Get Me Out Of here, Bernard Tomic sat down with The Project’s Carrie Bickmore where he revealed he wishes he had never gotten into tennis. 

Opening up about his notoriously bad behaviour, the 25-year-old world number 143 put it down to a ‘professional burnout’ and confessed he didn’t love the game.
