Bernard Tomic claimed this week that none of the Australian players liked Hewitt, because the winner of the grand slam came back twice to accuse the Queenslander of threatening him and his family and blackmailing him.
Bernard said something on television that Lleyton did not like, & # 39; said Tomic senior against the Sydney Morning Herald.
& # 39;[Hewitt] Bernard's room entered, closed the door, and pushed [Davis Cup captain] John Fitzgerald out and he said: "You have to tell me who is from TA to me. & # 39;
Tomic Senior said that Hewitt was on crutches at the time and told his son that he would not play Davis Cup again for Australia unless he spoke about TA.

He further claimed that Hewitt tried to force his son to say something and to press him so much that he could not sleep at night.
Bernard had made a comment in Melbourne Park in which Lleyton Hewitt was named. Lleyton did not like that comment and he asked: "Who told you to say that?"
& # 39; He was young … 16 and a half or 17. How can you get in the room and threaten him and say that you do not play Davis Cup and say that you will not be close to me if you do not tells? who of Tennis Australia tells you what to say? & # 39;
He said that they would take legal action against Hewitt next week.
We will prove that Bernard has trauma from 2010 when Bernard was the youngest player in Davis Cup for Australia, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; They will try to protect him, but we will find the truth in court. & # 39;
Hewitt & # 39; s manager David Drysdale said he knew nothing about the alleged delivery of 2010.
