Bernard Tomic will not be picked for the upcoming Davis Cup tie in Darwin.

Tennis Australia President Steve Healy announced the decision this afternoon and said Bernard’s disparaging and disrespectful post-match comments to the media yesterday effectively ruled him out of contention.

“His behaviour was unacceptable,” Healy said. “Playing for our country is an absolute privilege, and with that privilege comes an obligation to behave appropriately. He didn’t.

“The allegations are misinformed and untrue and he publicly derided some outstanding people. We are trying to build a strong culture underpinned by a philosophy of opportunity, not entitlement. This stuff is just not on.

“Hopefully he will learn from this. Our entire tennis community is committed to working hard to help all our players, including Bernard, be the best tennis players, and the best people, they can be.
