Bernard Tomic says that even though his banned father John Tomic is unable to attend his matches, he is still contributing to his son's progress at Wimbledon. John Tomic is staying with his son during the tournament, but has been banned from the grounds for allegedly assaulting Bernard’s hitting partner in May.

“When I leave the grounds and go somewhere different, you don't see what I'm doing with my dad,” Bernard said. "I could be practicing, I could be working on stuff.  You see the results, but you don't know exactly what's happening. When I leave the site, I'm with my dad. He's helping me at this tournament.  We're doing the right things.

"This is why the results are showing off now. I'm not doing it on my own. My dad is still involved. That's why I've gotten to where I am in this tournament and the results have shown.”
