Bernard Tomic has slammed Australian Open tournament directors, saying their scheduling decisions have been “ridiculous”.
The Australian made the comments following his straight-sets loss to Czech star Tomas Berdych, with Tomic suggesting the decision to leave both himself and compatriot Nick Kyrgios off Rod Laver Arena and schedule them to the outside showcourts.
“I think the scheduling was like ridiculous this year,” he was quoted by The West Australian.
“Like not just from my side, but for many players. I don’t know who was in charge of the schedule.
“Really, some of the matches I saw, it was just like, wow.
“I didn’t mind (missing out himself), but some of the other matches I saw I was like, ‘What the hell?'”
The 22-year-old went as far as to say that he’d do a better job than tournament director Craig Tiley.
“If I would have run the schedule, I would have made it interesting.”
With Tomic bowing out of the tournament, 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios remains Australia’s last hope in the first major of the season.
