Australian Open 2019: Lleyton Hewitt laughs off Bernie Tomic accusations

Australian Open Bernard Tomic eliminated by Marin Cilic in first round “No One Likes Him”: Bernard Tomic Absolutely Rinsed Lleyton Hewitt After His Australian Open Exit class= next-head

I've built a pretty strong relationship with Bernie.

"I think Lleyton's doing an unbelievable job", Newcombe told AAP.

Australian tennis great Pat Cash says there's "an unhealthy element" in Australian tennis at the moment.

"I hope he gets moved and we can go back to having a good captain".

"I don't know what to say", he said. They all have different strengths.

On the Gold Coast preparing for USA tournaments after the Australian Open, Tomic said he was prepared to thrash out his differences with Lleyton Hewitt. He claimed it had abandoned him.

"Go away", he said of Hewitt. You know, it's interesting what's happened the last week that Nick wasn't going to play, as well.

"The players that I have spoken to aren't".

Tomic beat Hewitt in their first ever professional meeting, a five-set epic at the US Open, the latter's last singles match. Hewitt jumped to Tomic's defence.

"It's amusing all these players who got wildcards under our system, I think it's guys like (Alex) Bolt ... they're all under his wing so he gets a percentage of that", Tomic said.

"Bernie had a great week in Brisbane".

"He doesn't put the players first".

The split became effective after Tomic's third round loss at the 2017 Australian Open. "I literally just said it had nothing to do with my loss". I've always wanted to play Davis Cup.

China calls proposed USA legislation against Huawei, ZTE 'hysteria'
Last week, Poland arrested a local Huawei executive and a former intelligence official on allegations of spying for China. According to T-Mobile's lawsuit, Huawei employees photographed the robot and attempted to remove one of its parts.

Australian Open - Serena Williams' statement is clear - She's focused on the future
In June, the 37-year-old caused a wave when she rocked a custom catsuit by Nike - inspired by Black Panther - for the French Open. Stephens and Babos combined to win three junior Grand Slam doubles titles - the French, Wimbledon and U.S.

However it later emerges Tomic chose to withdraw from the squad.

Samantha Stosur, the only other Australian aside from Hewitt to have won a grand slam title this century, cheekily suggested the answer to the rift could be closer than Tennis Australia realised.

"Of course, I was disappointed", he said.

NICK Kyrgios has delivered another bewildering media conference in which he showed tepid support for under siege Aussie Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt while also announcing he is not upset that Bernard Tomic declared he has issues with Hewitt's captaincy.

Kyrgios said he was available for Davis Cup but didn't think he'd be picked because "there's a lot of good players right now".

But like Kyrgios he provided a brief response when asked if he supported Hewitt as Davis Cup captain.

"And now, some of these young boys that I've been able to pick and I've given the opportunity to have taken it with both hands as well".

His wild claims that Hewitt has been promoting players tied to his own management company have since received widespread condemnation from the Aussie tennis fraternity...

"He doesn't put the players first, from what I've heard in the past year", Tomic said. Nobody likes him anymore.

As reported by the Herald Sun this week, Tennis Australia lost control over Tomic when the two camps agreed Tomic would never play Davis Cup or Olympic tennis for Australia again.

"I stand by my call".

"The general public can see what Lleyton's doing, but every time Bernie gets a microphone he attacks Tennis Australia or someone in it". "Until that clears and a few of the problems come out", Tomic said.

That was true before their cricket team came to our shores and chose to bring their own DIY materials onto the field, and I don't see that joy ending any time soon. I'm yet to address it.
