Australian Open Bernard Tomic fails to qualify after loss to Lorenzo Sonego

MELBOURNE — Bernard Tomic‘s Australian Open campaign is over before the tournament proper even begins following a 6-1 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 final-round qualifying loss to Italian Lorenzo Sonego.

Tomic looked shattered after a 6-1 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 defeat on Sunday, calling for the trainer and not moving to return serves in the often-punishing first set.

He rallied in the second set to force a decider but came up short, snapping his seven-year streak of playing in every major and leaving him at a career crossroads.

He was spent after the taxing loss, sarcastically responding to journalists asking him where he’d go from the loss.

“I just count money, that’s all I do. I count my millions,” he said.

“You go do what I did. Bye bye.”

Tomic, the world No. 142, will further slump in the ATP rankings as he will lose his points earned from a third-round appearance at Melbourne Park last year.
