The 21-year-old has been dumped by his long-time management company, IMG.
Management company IMG have announced it has split with troubled Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic, reportedly due to his poor off-court behaviour.
IMG used social media to announce it had dumped the 21-year-old.
While the company did not specify the reasons, reports in various tennis publications cite his off-court behaviour as the reason behind the split.
“IMG and Bernard Tomic have mutually ended our relationship,” IMG Tennis tweeted.
“We wish Bernard great success on and off the tennis court.”

Tomic had been with IMG since he was 13, and their agreement resulted in millions of dollars worth of sponsorship agreements.
However, Tomic has made headlines for all the wrong reasons of late, including a run in with Australian police in his sports car.
A Wimbledon quarter-finalist in 2011, Tomic has seen his ranking slide down to 166 and into tennis oblivion.
Tomic, having already lost the backing of a majority of the Australian public, has an uphill battle to again regain home support since the outstanding performances of young-guns Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis.
