Bernard Tomic has possibly marred up his recent tennis rehabilitation in the eyes of the Australian public as the Queensland hothead lost his driving license after being nabbed for speeding.
The world No. 43, who got as far as the Australian Open third round before running into Roger Federer, was cited for doing 78km/h in a 60km/h in his bright yellow Ferrari.
Tomic got a $220 ticket but enough penalty points to see his license lifted. Had he not been banned from this weekend's Davis Cup zonal tie in Taiwan for a lack of effort last season, the 20-year-old-would not have been behind the wheel.
Tomic, who had run-ins with local Gold Coast authorities a year ago including a stand-off at his family home, was already driving on a 12-month good behavior license. He had previous sold his high performance orange BMW, which he had been driving with special dispensation on a learner permit in 2012 as a teenager.
Tomic has found other off-court trouble, including a fight last autumn at a luxury Gold Coast spa which also involved police.
