‘They couldn’t treat me yet to avoid contact. The support ay. I really appreciate it! I’ll do better next time. 

He went on: ‘Very disappointed as I really wanted to make Aussies proud and perform well on my home turf’.  

Sporting a peroxide blond hairstyle, the new-look Tomic dished up his usual antics on Melbourne‘s Kia Arena on Tuesday in his match against Russian rising star Roman Safiullin.

Tomic made a speedy exit, losing 6-1 6-4 in just 57 minutes.

Trailing 1-2 in the second set, Tomic told chair umpire Aline Da Rocha Nocinto at the change-over he thought he had the virus.

‘I’m sure in the next two days I will test positive, I’m telling you,’ he said from his chair.

‘I’ll buy you dinner if I don’t test positive in three days, otherwise you buy me dinner.’

He was broken in fourth game and quickly capitulated, losing the first set in just 23 minutes.

The former world No.17, now ranked 257, hadn’t played in an ATP tournament since September, when he retired in the first round of a qualifier event in Kazakhstan.

That loss was his fifth in a row but he arrived in Melbourne vowing to again climb the rankings.

Safiullin, 24, was an unlikely star in Russia’s run to the ATP Cup semi-finals last week.

Another Australian, Nick Kyrgios, had to withdraw from the Sydney Tennis Classic after he contracted Covid-19.
