Tomic tanks: calls for & # 39; pathetic & # 39; Bernard after the bad tennis boy shows his interest in losing to the little-known American at the French Open
- Bernard Tomic lost his first round in a French Open match in just 82 minutes
- Taylor Fritz, 21, from the United States defeated the Queenslander in three sets
- Phone calls are made to 26-year-old Tomic, who apparently was not interested in playing
Bernard Tomic has denied not giving it everything – despite taking only 82 minutes against Taylor Fritz in another forgettable French Open run for the Australian.
There are calls for tennis officials to pay Tomic after he found it selfless to play – the first set lasted only 23 minutes.
The well-served American walked away easily with a 6-1 6-4 6-1 victory in the first round – the 21-year-old dominated in a grand slam.
Tomic barely looked up between the ministry and even tried to admit a winning return from Fritz to match point – despite his bewildered opponent and the chair referee telling him that his service had been a mistake.
The 26-year-old then shrugged through another abrupt press conference after the game, although he couldn't say he hadn't given up everything.

& # 39; (I'm pretty sure I did it (try it), but, you know, surface isn't good for me, & he said.
# I mean, it's not hard. It's just that my game is not built for this surface. Everything I do is not good for it. & # 39;
Tomic could be fined by officials under the Grand Slam & # 39; best effort & # 39; if they think he didn't try in the match.
& # 39; How does Bernard Tomic not get a fine for that performance? & # 39; tweette one tennis fan.
& # 39; Bernard Tomic is an ordinary embarrassment for Australia and world tennis. Must get a heavy punishment for that pathetic show he just put in #RolandGarros. & # 39; another viewer tweeted.
Tomic agreed with Nick Kyrgios' social media post last week that the French Open & # 39; sucked & # 39; compared to Wimbledon, but said it was just a fact that his game was not suitable for the slower surface.
His opponent, the American Taylor Fritz, 21, seemed puzzled by the limited effort Tomic made
Tomic apologized to the crowd after accidentally calling a trainer to court
His performance, both on and off the track, reflected last year's exit during the first round, although on that occasion he had won seven consecutive clay matches to qualify for the main draw.
Light rain was all that could slow Tomic & # 39; s self-controlled demise in the first set, while he could only laugh when a trainer was called to him early in the second.
Tomic turned his help away and returned to court with a wry grin as he prayed toward heaven and said, "I love Roland Garros, I love it," I love.
The comic relief seemed to bring Tomic into action, albeit briefly when the world No.84 was back on duty and reached 4-4 in the second set.
Fritz, however, immersed himself and earned the break after winning back-to-back 22-shot rally & # 39; s against the Queenslander.
Normal service, however, resumed when Tomic saw an ace passing by, while the American, 42 places higher, secured the set and made an early break in third place and closed the first glimmers of a game.
The grass season is waiting for the former world No.17, which is scheduled for qualification in Queens next month, but with another shrugging shoulders, Tomic said the only concrete plan he had at the moment was to return to his hotel in Paris.
& # 39; I love Roland Garros, & # 39; said Tomic as he was jeered by the crowd during his party
