Leo Schlink reports the following.
TENNIS Australia will throw Bernard Tomic to the wolves even if the star junior is given a life ban from the Pro Tour circuit for walking off court in Perth in December.
Tennis Australia's director of player development Craig Tiley last night declared Tomic would not receive any support from officials if the ITF bars the 16-year-old prodigy from the Pro Tour.
Such a ban would not prevent Tomic contesting ATP or grand slam events, but eviction from the Pro Tour's Challenger and Futures events would block the Queenslander's bid to improve his ranking.
TA's hardline stance comes amid revelations an official at the Sorrento futures event filed a police complaint against a player's parent.
