Bernard Tomic has revealed that he’s ‘really sick’ after claiming he would come down with Covid after competing in the  Australian Open qualifying round. 

The 29-year-old shared an Instagram Stories post on Tuesday, revealing he was feeling unwell and in isolation in his Melbourne hotel. 

He wrote: ‘Feeling really sick, I’m now back in my hotel room. Just spoke to the doctors on site and they’ve asked me to isolate.’

‘They couldn’t treat me yet to avoid contact. The support ay. I really appreciate it! I’ll do better next time. 

He went on: ‘Very disappointed as I really wanted to make Aussies proud and perform well on my home turf’.  

Sporting a peroxide blond hairstyle, the new-look Tomic dished up his usual antics on Melbourne‘s Kia Arena on Tuesday in his Australian Open qualifying match against Russian rising star Roman Safiullin.

Tomic made a speedy exit, losing 6-1 6-4 in just 57 minutes.

Trailing 1-2 in the second set, Tomic told chair umpire Aline Da Rocha Nocinto at the change-over he thought he had the virus.

‘I’m sure in the next two days I will test positive, I’m telling you,’ he said from his chair.

‘I’ll buy you dinner if I don’t test positive in three days, otherwise you buy me dinner.’

Tomic told her he couldn’t believe there was no official PCR testing for players, with only a rapid test required.

‘They’re allowing players to come on court with rapid tests in their room, c’mon … no official PCR testing,’ he said.

A lethargic Tomic was seen by the trainer at the first changeover in the opening set and was seen taking his pulse while out on court.

He was broken in fourth game and quickly capitulated, losing the first set in just 23 minutes.

The former world No.17, now ranked 257, hadn’t played in an ATP tournament since September, when he retired in the first round of a qualifier event in Kazakhstan.

That loss was his fifth in a row but he arrived in Melbourne vowing to again climb the rankings.

Safiullin, 24, was an unlikely star in Russia’s run to the ATP Cup semi-finals last week.

'I'm sure in the next two days I will test positive, I'm telling you,' he said from his chair. 'I'll buy you dinner if I don't test positive in three days, otherwise you buy me dinner'
