    Again the Hewitt interview fails to deny any of the allegations....
    If Tomic has genuinely tried to blackmail Hewitt he should have been reported to authorities

    Isn't blackmail a criminal offence.

    It most certainly is. Even if he went to the tennis authorities Tomic would have copped a big ban

    The allegations about harassment from Tomic are a deflection - of course the deadshits in the media will lap up that angle so they don't have to do any hard work and ask any difficult questions. If it has taken place, why hasn't there been any charges laid?
    He said outright: "I don't have a management company" No".

    I fail to see how he "hasn't refuted anything".

    And this might be hard for you to believe, but not everyone who is wronged by another person wants to get Police involved.

    Let's stop talking about Tomic. He really doesn't deserve any of our attention.

    I think if I'm reading Sedat correctly, you need to concentrate on what Hewitt and the principal directors aren't saying.

    No, Hewitt doesn't have a stake in the management company, but we don't know whether he receives an inducement, incentive or a reduction in his own management fees for referrals of players under his influence. Where things become unstuck, is the principals denying that they manage any of the players Tomic listed through their management company. This means that Hewitt or a related third party manages them and all receive indirect compensation for the pleasure, or he doesn't or they don't and Tomic is full of piss and wind.

    The latter is comfortably the more probable situation, but Tennis Australia should probe the accusations.

    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Yep, that's how I read it too. Hewitt is using weasel words and we need to concentrate on what wasn't said rather than getting distracted by what he did say.
    WASH YOUR HANDS!!!

    Re: Bernard Tomic

    He's going through a very difficult patch now

    Bernard Tomic admits he faces an uncertain and confronting future after first-round Australian Open qualifying defeat.

    The Queenslander is still hampered by torn ligaments in his left hand, a handicap obvious in a 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 defeat to gritty American Denis Kudla.

    The former world No. 17, who has now slumped to almost 190th, has barely been able to practise because of a hand injury suffered while playing basketball in the US last year.

    He admitted a lack of professionalism compounded the issue.

    “I’m struggling with it,” the Wimbledon quarter-finalist said.

    “I really haven’t been professional in the first month to go get it scanned.

    “I played Asia and I pulled out virtually every tournament. I was upset at myself.

    “I’m now giving it time to heal. I haven’t hit a backhand properly for a month. I’m hitting in pain.

    “I’ve got to fix this. I need my backhand to play. It’s my most important shot.”


    Declaring a goal of trying “to get back into the top 100 but I’ve just got to stay healthy,” Tomic said he would consider his options if the hand didn’t improve within a few weeks.

    “If this doesn’t feel better in two weeks, then I don’t know,” he said.

    Tomic was joined on the tournament scrapheap by Matt Ebden and junior Tristan Schoolkate but there were encouraging Australian victories elsewhere.

    Aleksandar Vukic upstaged Italian 11th seed Thomas Fabbiano 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 as Luke Saville overcame Dane Mikael Torpegaard 6-3 6-3.
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world for the better.
