Ajla Tomljanovic slams 'Netflix curse' talk: Can we stop with this

Ajla Tomljanovic does not believe in the "Netflix curse" thing and that appearing on Break Point has something to do with several withdrawals and surprising exits at the Australian Open. Of 10 players who were featured on the first part of Netflix's tennis documentary, only one is still alive in the Australian Open draw - Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Tomljanovic, Paula Badosa and Nick Kyrgios didn't even get to play at the Australian Open due to injuries, while Ons Jabeur, Maria Sakkari, Casper, Ruud, Taylor Fritz, Matteo Berrettini and Thanasi Kokkinakis have all lost at Melbourne Park.

"Can we stop with the Netflix curse lol. It’s just sports," Tomljanovic tweeted.

Tomljanovic revealed how it felt when she once experienced doubts on the courts

In the second episode of Break Point, Tomljanovic revealed what was going through her mind during a 6-4 6-0 2022 Australian Open first-round defeat against Paula Badosa.

Tomljanovic got the break back to cut the deficit to 5-4, but then missed three game points in the 10th game as Badosa broke to win the first set. Tomljanovic never recovered from that as she didn't win a single game in the rest of the match.

On Break Point, Tomljanovic revealed what was happening in her mind when she lost the first set in a devastating way and then found herself down by a break early in the second set. "I start thinking, like, 'Am I capable of doing this?' That's where everything started kinda going downhill.

My thoughts just kind of start spiraling. All the negativity coming at me all at once. That little voice in your head doesn't stop. I blink and it's five-love. Everything stopped being fun," Tomljanovic said of Break Point. Meanwhile, Tomljanovic has had a knee surgery to address the injury that forced her out of the Australian Open.

"Update. This morning I had a minor procedure done on my knee that went very well. Sadly I won't be around the next few months, but I'm happy I did the necessary steps to get fully healthy. Great things take time and rehab starts very soon!

I can't wait to get back out there. Appreciate all your sweet messages and words of support, doesn't go unnoticed," Tomljanovic wrote in a message posted on her Twitter.
