Tennis Player Asks Umpire To Remove His Father From Stadium – VIDEO
This is video of Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic asking an umpire to remove his father and coach, John, during a match last weekend against David Ferrer, on the ATP World Tour in Miami, Florida.
Tomic made the request after the 19-year-old held serve at 2-2 in the second set. During that game, television cameras showed his father and coach, John, shaking his head in disgust from the stands.
Tomic pleaded with the umprie during a changeover; “He’s annoying – I know he’s my father – but he’s annoying me.”
Tomic was a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon last year.
A player asking that his coach/father be removed from a match? Yeah, that’s different!
