Tomic's 'bored' response

"I felt a little bit bored out there," said Bernard Tomic of Australia after a first-round exit to Mischa Zverev in 2017. "The last sort of year or two, nothing motivates." Tomic, who had struggled for form for at least a year and had not won a tour title since 2015, was vilified by fellow players and criticized by his own father. Eleven-time singles champion Martina Navratilova said, "If you can't get motivated for Wimbledon, it's time to find another job."
