The former world No.17 has seen his standing on the ATP rankings plummet in recent years, currently he’s ranked 226th in the world.
His last time on the court came back in March during the ATP Challenger Tour in Monterrey, Mexico where he was beaten in the round of 16 be fellow Aussie Aleksandar Vukic 6-4, 6-4.
He thrust his name back into the spotlight earlier this month when he went public with his new flame, top OnlyFans star Vanessa Sierra.
Sierra has sat in the stands cheering on her new beau every day of the tournament so far, uploading a video of Tomic in action along with the caption: “Killed it today”.
Sierra made a name for herself during the 2019 television series of Love Island, before turning her attention to the adult subscription site OnlyFans.
The relationship quickly went to new levels with Tomic making his adult website debut alongside Sierra.
Tomic appeared in a video on the adult site after the couple released a teaser image on the 25-year-old’s Instagram page.
The image shows the former top 20 tennis player lying across Sierra’s legs on the floor and biting her bare bottom as she smoulders towards the camera in her underwear.
The image, which appeared on Sierra’s Instagram story, includes a link to the adult film site where fans can pay to watch a video of Tomic and Sierra.
“Oops I convinced Tomic to do something bad. Swipe up to see the video, sorry mum,” Sierra captioned the image.
