Bernard Tomic has bowed out of the Australian Open ahead of the start of the tournament proper, before opening fire at the media in a weird post-match interview.

His only option was to try to fight his way through qualifying but, after winning two matches, he was beaten 6-1, 6-7, 6-4 by Italy's Lorenzo Sonego in the final round.

"I just count money, that's all I do". "You go do what I did [on court]". You go make 13-14 million.

It was a flawless start for Sonego, he lost 2 points on serve in the opening set and got 2 breaks in games 4 and 6 for a commanding 6-1 in just over 20 minutes.

The remark echoed his reaction to criticism for a lack of commitment in Madrid a year ago, when he said: "Would you care if you were 23 and worth over $10m?"

Tomic is just one win away from qualifying for the home grand slam, with world no.217 Lorenzo Sonego standing in his way in the third round of qualifiers.

Tomic is reportedly set to feature on the latest series of Channel 10's I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.

Remember the time at the Madrid Open a year ago?

Tomic finished 2017 at No. 142 in the rankings, meaning he missed out on direct entry to the 128-player singles draw at Melbourne Park, and Australian Open organizers declined to give him a wildcard entry. However, despite reaching the third round at last year's Australian Open, the Aussie is likely to drop in the the rankings after failing to qualify this year.
