‘Get up ya dog’: Terrifying footage of brutal Tomic attack at tattoo parlour emerges

WARNING: Distressing footage

Terrifying footage of Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic has been shared on social media.

The 16 second clip shows two men standing over the body of Tomic and attempting to kick and stomp him.

Tomic, in an all grey tracksuit, is desperately trying to cover his face throughout the length of the clip before one man attempts to pick him up off the ground and back to his feet.

The identities of the two men attempting to assault the former world number 17 remain unknown along with the identity of the individual filming.

Channel 10 reported the video was filmed outside of a tattoo parlour on the Gold Coast while the details of when the attack happened remain unclear.

One man continually shouts at Tomic “get up ya dog” throughout the video.

Tomic competed in a challenger event in Istanbul where he lost in the round of 16 on Thursday, September 7 in three sets.

The 30-year-old Queenslander has enjoyed a rankings rebound after falling to number 825 in the world.

Over the past 18 months he has worked his way back to now sit as the world number 292.

Despite his rise it wasn’t enough to earn him a qualifying wildcard for the Australian Open Grand Slam earlier in the year.

Australian Open boss Craig Tiley revealed why Tomic ultimately missed out on a wildcard slot for the tournament.

“Our team that looks at the decision has a team of people that looks at the decision of wildcards,” Tiley said.

“(They look at) the player coming in, the strength of their play, what events they’ve been playing, how much they’ve been playing, are they the younger part of our future generation. There’s many factors that go into it.”

Tomic has fallen out of favour with Tennis Australia after he blasted Aussie tennis icon Lleyton Hewitt back in 2019.

Along with his outburst in the direction of Hewitt, Tomic has a long-running feud with fellow Aussie Nick Kyrgios.

The two have traded verbal barbs over the years with their feud exploding all over again at the end of 2022.

The last shot in their heated war of words came from Kyrgios who clipped Tomic with a stinging spray.
