Name: Bernard Tomic
Born: October 21, 1992
Bernard Tomic was born in Stuttgart, Germany on October 21, 1992. He is the son of John Ivica and Ady Tomic, and he has one sister, Sarah, who is also a professional tennis player.
His family relocated to Queensland, Australia when Bernard was just three years old. He studied at Southport State School, and then at The Southport School on a sports scholarship.
Bernard was in a relationship with Emma Blake-Hahnel, 25, but he announced their split in a newspaper article – she only learned about their breakup in the media.
He would join the junior International Tennis Federation (ITF), and would go on to win nine titles, including a couple of junior Grand Slams: Australian Open and French Open. There was high promise for Bernard, and he promised that he would be the greatest tennis player in the world, winning all of the Grand Slams.
In 2008, Bernard would transition to the professional Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) circuit. He would be unable to win any Grand Slams – the highest round he ever competed in was the quarterfinals at the 2011 Wimbledon. Bernard did break the Top 20 and eventually win three singles titles: Apia International Sydney (2013) and Claro Open Colombia (2014 and 2015).
Bernard’s career would take a turn for the worst in 2017, finishing in the first-round at numerous tennis competitions.
Bernard has participated at the international stage, representing Australia at the 2012 Summer Olympics, World Tennis Challenge, Hopman Cup, and Fast 4 Tennis Showdown.
In January 2018, Bernard transitioned to reality television, partaking as a celebrity contestant on the fourth season of the hit Australian series “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!” After just three days, Bernard quit the show, citing stress and depression. Soon after quitting the show, he promised to return to the tennis circuit.
We estimate that Bernard Tomic’s net worth is $5.1 million (2018).
So how much is $5.1 million really?
$5.1 million can help construct a tennis court in your backyard. $5.1 million can also cover the contracts of several young up-and-coming tennis players.
