Sport. Tomic ' s ludicrous lucky break after tank job . Bernard Tomic has reached the main draw of the ATP's Delray Beach Open despite a pathetic qualifying loss.

Tomic the Tank Engine. Thread starter coloskier. Start date Oct 15, 2013. Yeah I saw the match. He totally gave up after losing 1st set. Commentator said again and again that he must've have been injured. But it was just the tank Tomic .

Bernard Tomic has reached the main draw of the ATP's Delray Beach Open despite a pathetic qualifying loss in which he won just three points in the second set.

Tomic lost 6-2 6-0 to world No.190 Ernests Gulbis in 53 minutes on Monday (AEDT) and appeared to have crashed out of the tournament.

Yet the Aussie world No.191 became an extremely jarring beneficiary of the 'lucky loser' rule, after the withdrawal of recent Australian Open quarter-finalist Tennys Sandgren due to a knee injury.

Bernard Tomic: Life and career in pictures

Tomic went into a draw against world No.161 Denis Istomin and became the fortunate recipient of a qualifying spot.

Istomin, by contrast, had lost his final qualifying match 6-4 3-6 7-6 (6) in two hours and 26 minutes against Noah Rubin. A genuine effort - but not enough.

Tomic vs Gulbis featured a truly diabolical moment in the third game of the second set, with the Aussie down 0-40 on serve.

Tomic returned a Gulbis dropshot that was called out, while telling the umpire that the ball was actually in. The point should have been replayed and Tomic walked back to the baseline to receive a ball for another serve; yet when the umpire incorrectly called game for Gulbis, Tomic shrugged, threw the ball away and walked to his chair 0-3 down.

Asbestos fears for Balmoral couple who survived NSW bushfires that contaminated water tanks

  Asbestos fears for Balmoral couple who survived NSW bushfires that contaminated water tanks Debbie Padroth and her partner, Pete Richer, stared down the firestorm and saved their home south-west of Sydney, but now they are scared to drink the water from their tank. The couple's home was in the path of the massive Green Wattle Creek Fire as it tore through the Wingecarribee Shire on December 19, 2019.Three of their neighbours who were evacuated lost their homes in the fire."You look at rubble every day and you know there is asbestos there," Ms Padroth said."It's been raining — that is leaking into the creek system and the winds are blowing dust onto our property.

Having clearly made little effort in his qualifying match, Tomic now gets a shot at the ATP 250 event's main draw. He has not won at ATP Tour match since July last year, against fellow Australian Matt Ebden in Atlanta. He retired against Alex de Minaur in the following round.

Tomic will play Cedrik-Marcel Stebe in the first round at Delray Beach for a minimum pay day of $US 5570 ($AUD 8303) and would make $US 9670  ($AUD 14,414) for a round two appearance against either No.2 seed Milos Raonic or Andreas Seppi.

He then beat Istomin in first-round qualifying for the New York Open, before a dismal 6-2 6-1 loss to 35-year-old world No.114 Go Soeda, which took just 39 minutes; the second-fastest defeat of his career. His quickest loss is a 28-minute effort against Jarkko Nieminen in 2014 (6-0 6-1).

Tomic beat world No.463 Pol Toledo Bague in just 49 minutes in round one of qualifying at Delray Beach, before his capitulation against Gulbis.

Tomic, 27, is a former world No.17 and Wimbledon quarter-finalist who has won four ATP titles. However, the days where he showed immense promise are a distant memory.

Fellow Aussie Nick Kyrgios is the top seed for Delray Beach, with a current world ranking of No.21 after his fourth-round Australian Open appearance. John Millman and Jordan Thompson are also in the draw.
