Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic sensed that something wasn't okay from the moment he woke up on Thursday as the Australian was clearly struggling on the court during his Wimbledon qualifying final round match. 2011 Wimbledon quarter-finalist Tomic was defeated by Belgian Ruben Bemelmans on Thursday 6-3 6-1 6-2.
The Australian, who was grimacing the whole match, appeared to be heavily ill on the court but refused to quit the match. Tomic couldn't wait for a changeover as he stopped the match while he was 6-3 5-1 down as the doctor rushed to the court to check out the Australian.
"In the morning when I woke I felt it. For the first four or five games, I was okay but I feel bad now," Tomic told the doctor. "I'm sweating a lot and I'm not moving. I feel like I'm going to vomit for the last half an hour.
I feel like I'm going to throw up if I play a long rally. "In the morning I felt bad – well, not bad, but not myself. I'm sweating really, really a lot but I'm not doing a lot. Sweat is pouring out of me. "I feel sick.
If I play a long rally, I feel like I'm going to vomit." However, Tomic is set to meet Pole Hubert Hurkacz in the Wimbledon first round as he sneaked in the main draw as a lucky loser. Also read: Sam Groth reveals two top moments of his career
