Tomic beats Querrey at Wimbledon
LONDON (AP) - Bernard Tomic, whose father is barred from tour tournaments because of an assault case, defeated 21st-seeded Sam Querrey in five sets Tuesday to reach the second round of Wimbledon.
The 20-year-old Tomic, Australia's most promising player, won 7-6 (6), 7-6 (3), 3-6, 2-6, 6-3 after withstanding a flurry of 36 aces by the American.
Tomic's father and coach, John Tomic, may not attend Wimbledon, even as a paying spectator. He also was barred from the French Open. John Tomic has been charged in Spain with assaulting his son's hitting partner before the Madrid Open.
A Madrid court has postponed John Tomic's case until October. He is accused of head-butting Thomas Drouet near their hotel before the tournament.
