Lleyton Hewitt Opens Up About The "Threats" Bernard Tomic Sent His Family

Australia’s Nick Kyrgios takes a break during the match against Canada’s Milos Raonic at Australian Open 2019

Bernard Tomic has hit back at Lleyton Hewitt over accusations he threatened the Davis Cup captain's family, calling the two-time grand slam victor a "liar". "Blackmail threats and physical", and revealed they have been made against him and his family.

"I have never threatened his family", Tomic said.
To think how low of a person you actually [are] and [it's] why the Australian public never liked you.

"I've got nothing to do with your family and I don't care what's wrong with you, you liar".

World number 88 Tomic returned serve on Friday, describing Hewitt as a "liar".

So even if Tomic, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis did want to play Davis Cup, would they be picked?

The Davis Cup captain confirmed he is still speaking to Kyrgios, and has spoken to him since his initial press conference, and confirmed the door remains open for the 23-year-old to return to the Davis Cup squad at some point in the future.

Tomic and Hewitt have been feuding since Tomic claimed Australia couldn't win Davis Cup matches without him, and Hewitt refused to select him.

"(The threats were) blackmail and physical".

"For me it was probably the abuse I copped from him".

"It will (continue). He won't play Davis Cup while I have anything to do with it".

Hewitt said the threats were physical and that Tomic had also attempted to blackmail him over wild cards.

"I've flown up to the Gold Coast trying to put teams around him, especially when things were hard in his family life", Hewitt said. "Tried to get a coaching structure around him to give him the best opportunity".

"Since then, I haven't had anything to do with Bernie..."

Following his own first-round defeat to Milos Raonic, Kyrgios denied he'd had a falling out with Hewitt, but later deleted an Instagram story attacking him. We have some exceptional players doing some exceptional things here.

"The biggest thing "Rochey" (Cup coach Tony Roche) I have is to set cultural standards and I feel Nick isn't meeting those".

Bolt and Popyrin's spectacular forays into the last 32 have blown Tomic's assertion that they were only gifted entries into the grand slam because they were under Hewitt's wing, out of the water. Really, you are a blot on the Australian sporting landscape and the more this is played out, the more Tennis Australia needs to intervene and say, "Enough is enough". I don " t have a management company and I'm not getting a percentage", the skipper adressing Tomic's claims that Hewitt played favourites for personal gain.
