'I'll Test Positive': Aussie Tennis Player Bernard Tomic Makes Bizarre Mid-Match Claims

Bernard Tomic is up to his usual tricks again.

The Aussie tennis player gave everyone a scare when he announced that he's probably Covid positive while playing a recent match.

Tomic was competing in the qualifying stage of the Australian Open, falling short in the second round against Russian opponent Roman Safiullin.

But it was during the opening set of his 6-1 6-4 defeat that Tomic made some pretty bizarre but quite alarming comments in the direction of the chair umpire.

"I'm sure in the next two days I'll test positive, I'm telling you," Tomic said.

"I'll buy you dinner if I don't test positive in three days. Otherwise, you buy me dinner.

"I cannot believe nobody's getting tested. They're allowing players to come on the court with rapid tests in their room. Come on.

"No official PCR testing."

The cameras then cut to concerned Australian Open officials who were looking over trying to work out what was going on.

And even though half their mouths were covered with masks, you could just see the confusion plastered all over their faces.

Other footage then showed Tomic swiftly strolling straight off court after his complete and utter thrashing.

He did, however, provide fans with a concerning post-match health update.

"Feeling really sick, I'm now back in my hotel room," he posted on his Instagram story.

"Just spoke to the doctors on site and they've asked me to isolate. They couldn't treat me yet to avoid contact.

"Thank you all for the support on the court today. I really appreciate it! I'll do better next time. Very disappointed as I really wanted to make Aussies proud and perform well on my home turf."

Unfortunately for Tomic, his antics away from the court have been far more eventful than his performances on it.

He ended up being roped into an OnlyFans cameo with his former girlfriend and Love Island contestant Vanessa Sierra, something he now admits is the biggest regret of his life.

That relationship appeared to be going down hill when Tomic's ex-partner shared a damning video of the tennis star throwing a "little tantrum" and smashing up a laptop during a dispute.

Tomic made headlines again recently with a truly bizarre interview, in which he opened his chat with reporters by claiming he s**t himself live on-air.
