• Wimbledon bans Tomic father from Championships

    Wimbledon bans Tomic father from Championships Wimbledon has followed the grand slam lead of the French Open and banned John Tomic from entering the gates of the All England club after last month's ATP ban on him coaching his 64th-ranked son Bernard.

    The senior Tomic faces a Madrid court date in October for breaking the nose of his son's former hitting partner in a May attack on a street in the Spanish capital. After the incident, the ATP laid down its ruling to keep him away from tournaments.

    While the sanction applies only to his role as coach, it has been a different case for actually entering tournament sites. The elder Tomic bought a ticket into Queen's club last week with the blessing of event
    officials, the same as in Eastbourne this week.

    But Wimbledon says it will keep him completely out of the grounds, much in the way it did with another bad dad a decade ago, Australian Damir Dokic.

    Tomic won his first match in nearly two months by advancing into the Eastbourne second round and backed that up by moving into the quarter-finals as he defeated Julien Benneteau. Bernard Tomic, who says he is over a hamstring injury problem, has put his father's legal woes out of his mind as much as possible. "I'm not thinking about that, it's not a big issue for me."
