Bernard Tomic is not in good terms with Tennis Australian, and he is definitely not in great terms with Lleyton Hewitt.
Let’s see what happened.
No one likes Hewitt. TOMIC
Currently ranked no.88, Tomic crashed out from the Australian Open in the first round after losing in straight sets to Marin Cilic (6-2 6-4 7-6),
After the match, talking about the divisions in Tennis Australia, Tomic commented
“It’s all Lleyton. I’m going to say it honestly; no one likes him anymore. He’s just doing the wrong thing. He’s playing Davis Cup; I thought he was retired. You know what I mean?
He used to hate Tennis Australia. It’s weird. And now he loves them. What’s happened here? But I guess he’s using them for other things and resources and yep. And it’s for his pay cheque, yep.”

Tomic threatened my family, and he blackmailed me. HEWITT
“The [physical] threats that I’ve received, for my family and me, that I’ve had for a year and a half now, I don’t think anyone would reach out to a person who speaks like that.”
Talking about the blackmails, Lleyton revealed that Tomic threatened not to play the Davis Cup if he didn’t receive a wildcard for the Australian Open.
Then Hewitt added
“It makes me disappointed because deep down Bernie knows what I’ve done for him, how much time I’ve spent, you know, I’ve flown up to the Gold Coast to try and put teams around him when he was struggling mentally with certain issues as well with his family situation.”
That’s quite of an unfortunate situation.
