Bernard Tomic slides out of the Open - and further down the rankings

Bernard Tomic slides out of the Open - and further down the rankings

He was spent after the taxing loss, sarcastically responding to journalists asking him where he'd go from the loss.

Tomic will miss his first Grand Slam tournament in seven years and his ranking will dip even lower than 142, where he now sits.

"All I do is count my millions. you try doing what I do", Tomic is reported as saying after the match. "I count my millions", he said.

Fellow Aussies John-Patrick Smith and Bradley Mousley have also failed to win through to the main draw.

Smith was defeated by American Kevin King 6-4 7-6 (8-6) in 1 hour and 29 minutes. Home favorite was off to a flawless start, rattling off the first 7 games of the match and breaking Paul in the 4th game of the second set to move 6-0 5-2 in front, controlling the scoreboard and also the rallies.

One of weirdest Pokémon spin-offs yet is being released in the West after all, but sadly without the voice of Danny DeVito. At just under 14 centimeters tall, it's nearly double the size of the Super Smash Bros .-edition Pikachu Amiibo .

"You go do what I did [on the court]".

Irina Falconi (No.15) and Danielle Collins also kept the flag flying in women's qualifying, Falconi taking out Russian Polina Monova in straight sets to now face Australian wildcard Priscilla Hon for a main draw berth.

He told Australian media in July that he has never loved tennis and simply treated it as a job.

He was fined a Wimbledon-record $20,000 after admitting to feigning injury and being "a little bored" during a listless first-round loss to Mischa Zverev at The All England Club.

Australian Bernard Tomic will miss his home Grand Slam for the first time in a decade after failing to qualify on Sunday.
