Marat Safin says Bernard Tomic is the wildest player on tour 

Marat Safin, one of tennis’s most notorious party boys, thinks Bernard Tomic could give him a run for his money.

The rowdy Russian claims rumours of his own indulgence and excess have been somewhat exaggerated, and pointed to the Australian 25-year-old as the wildest athlete on the grand slam tour.

Tomic’s decadent reputation was revealed in an interview between Safin and French newspaper L’Equipe, as a reporter posed the question: which player prefers ‘fiesta (party) or tennis?’

‘Bernard Tomic, I think, has got all the records, as far as I heard anyway,’ Safin replied.

‘Fiesta or tennis? I don’t know. But for him, it’s fiesta, fiesta, fiesta – and then tennis.’

The Aussie tennis star, who previously ranked as high as number 17 in the world, has made headlines in the past for his lavish lifestyle.

He allegedly spent a staggering $50,000 on a single night out at Melbourne’s Bond nightclub last year – an evening that consisted of helicopter rides, vintage Champagne, premium caviar and a personalised sound and lighting show.

On that occasion, Tomic allegedly neglected to respond to noise complaints and ultimately refused to leave the hotel premises despite multiple requests from security.

Florida police released a mugshot of the disgraced player after he spent the next day sobering up at a local correctional centre.
