Tennis ‘bad boy’ Bernard Tomic says he’s turned over a new leaf after quitting ‘partying, dating and eating meat’ to focus on his career
Bernard Tomic claims he is a changed man, with a new goal to put his entire focus on his tennis career.
Speaking to the The Functional Tennis podcast this week, the 29-year-old said he’s stopped drinking alcohol, partying, dating and eating meat as part of his lifestyle overhaul.
‘You know, I wasn’t very professional with the outside stuff I was doing, with the eating, with the training obviously’, the newly peroxide blond sportsman said.

‘I changed to vegan two and a half, three years ago and I love it, it’s an amazing feeling.’
Tomic said was inspired to embrace a plant-based diet by world No. 1 Novak Djokovi, who has long been a proponent of veganism.
‘A lot of successful people are vegan,’ Tomic said.

‘I got inspired actually by Novak, so it was something I tried and it worked for me. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to eating anything else so I’m a proud vegan.’
‘The taste of meat, don’t get me wrong, it’s unbelievable but like I don’t miss it because there’s animals involved and I’m all about that.’
‘I mean I believe in Karma, you know you do the right thing and there’s always something around.
Following in his footsteps: Tomic added that he decided to follow in world No. 1 Novak Djokovic’s (pictured) footsteps by adapting a plant-based diet
‘It’s not just that but for my health as well. I mean my health has overall gone a lot better in the last couple of years.’
On top of his lifestyle changes, Bernard said he’s also given up dating so that he can focus on reaching his goal of being in the world’s top 10 tennis players.
Bernard’s most recent girlfriend was Australian OnlyFans star and Love Island contestant Vanessa Sierra.
They debuted their romance in November last year, when Vanessa shared a clip of the controversial player giving her a kiss on the cheek on her Instagram Stories.

The pair appeared to split back in June following a very public spat, which involved Vanessa uploading footage of Bernard smashing her $16,000 laptop at an apartment in Croatia.
Footage showed Tomic in the midst of a tantrum, while a visibly worried Vanessa watched as he used his knees to break the MacBook in half.
The couple briefly reunited in September but it seems they have since called things off for good.
