Bernard Tomic "felt bored" during defeat to Mischa Zverev

Australia's Bernard Tomic returns to Germany's Mischa Zverev during their Men's Singles match on day two at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Tuesday July 4

But it was Tomic who made the headlines for all the wrong reasons following his lame 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 loss to German 27th seed Mischa Zverev.

"It was definitely a mental issue out there", Tomic told reporters after his defeat.

"You know I wasn't mentally and physically there, with my mental state to perform and I don't know why".

"I don't know why, but I felt a little bit bored out there, to be completely honest with you".

"I tried at the end and stuff, he managed to win that set 6-3 or 6-4, but it was too late". He said a lack of motivation was the problem.

"Well, I think I have done it a lot in my career, and I paid the price". "While I do feel a bit of guilt and I'm like maybe I could have played four or five sets, but in my opinion, [Zeverev] played well and I was just playing awful and I just couldn't find any rhythm, and he deserved to win. You know, I'm going to play another 10 years, and I know after my career I won't have to work again".

"You know, I know I have another 10 years to go".

The 24-year-old needed medication, but Zverev only needed one more service break in the third set to wrap up the match in less than an hour and a half. But I think I don't respect it enough.

He added it was "tough to find motivation" in his "eighth or ninth" Wimbledon appearance.


And Tomic, a junior U.S. and Australian Open champion without a single semi-final appearance at a Grand Slam in his professional career, was the first to criticise his own preparation for the tournament and in his career generally. "It's happened to me a lot, I just can't find anything on the court". "Just can't find anything on the court".

Tomic's exit in just the first-round brings the Aussie men's body count to four in just two days, joining Andrew Whittington, John Millman and Nick Krygios, who retired on just day one due to a hip injury. He admits he does not commit to the sport the way he should. For sure I don't do the right work. "I think I have done it a lot in my career and I paid the price".

- After all the hard work and dedication it takes to get to Wimbledon, at least one player couldn't be bothered with actually trying to win.

'If you ask Roger if he'll do it, I'll do it'.

'You need to find that sort of energy. Just can't find anything on the court.

'Nothing to lose. Just try and enjoy it'.

Tomic, who has won three ATP Tour titles, has earned nearly £4m in career prize money, including £35,000 for his defeat by Zverev.

"Some weeks I play well and beat a bunch of players and do super well in tournaments. but now it's a roller coaster, and I just can't seem to find, like, the commitment to work hard, to enjoy (playing) and to lift trophies", Tomic said. It's not there. I couldn't care less if I make a fourth round US Open or I lose first round.
