Wimbledon: Bernard Tomic faces fine after defeat
It was only four minutes longer than it took Roger Federer to defeat Alejandro Falla
London: Bernard Tomic shrugged off the prospect of being stripped of his 45,000-pound ($57,000) prize money after losing the second shortest match at Wimbledon.
The controversial Australian, who has been accused of not trying previously in his career, lost 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 to France’s Jo-Wifried Tsonga in just 58 minutes. It was only four minutes longer than it took Roger Federer to defeat Alejandro Falla of Colombia in 2004.
"I think I played as best as I could. It’s just I played terrible," said the World No. 96.
