Bernard Tomic has known as Lleyton Hewitt a “liar” and denied threatening the Australia Davis Cup captain’s household.
An ugly confrontation inside Australian males’s tennis has overshadowed the home nation’s achievements on court docket and reveals no signal of dying down but.
It started on Monday when, after a first-round loss, Tomic accused Hewitt of favouring some players over others and mentioned no-one needed him as Davis Cup captain.
Hewitt then responded in an incendiary press convention on Thursday, calling Tomic a clown and claiming the 26-year-old had tried to blackmail him and threatened him and his household.
“The threats I’ve acquired for me and my household, that I’ve had for a year and half now, I don’t suppose anybody would attain out to an individual who speaks like that,” mentioned Hewitt.
Now Tomic has fired again, telling the Herald Sun: “I’ve by no means threatened his household. Nice, Lleyton. To suppose how low of an individual you truly (are), and why the Australian public by no means preferred you.
“I bought nothing to do with your loved ones and I don’t care what’s flawed with you, you liar.”
