Tomic boasts of 'never really trying’
Under-fire Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic has boasted of his "amazing" achievements in the sport and winning millions of dollars in prize money despite not really trying hard throughout his career. In a candid interview with Australian broadcaster The Seven Network, the 24-year-old also said he felt 'trapped' in the sport. “Throughout my career I've given 100 percent. I've given also 30 percent," Tomic said in the television interview from Miami. "But if you balance it out, I think my career's been around 50 percent and I haven't really tried and I've achieved all this,” Tomic said. “I never loved tennis. I am just going to go about it as a job. Wouldn't anyone want to take a job in a professional sport in one of the biggest sports in the world and only give 50, 60 percent and earn millions of dollars? I think everybody would take that,” he opined.
