So there is 90 seconds between changeovers, that's 9 minutes and 120 seconds between sets makes 11 minutes. That's two sets in 25 minutes of playing time! If both players took the 20 seconds allowed between points, Bernie would be playing under 10 minutes a set.

“I don’t care about that match point—would you care if you were 23 and worth over $10 million?” – After throwing away the final point of a 6-2, 6-4 match in the first round of the 2016 Madrid Masters."

“Throughout my career I’ve given 100 per cent. I’ve given also 30 per cent. But if you balance it out, I think all my career’s been around 50 percent and I haven’t really tried and I’ve achieved all this. So it’s just amazing what I’ve done.” – In a candid interview with The Seven Network in July 2017."

"I just count money, that’s all I do, I count my millions. You go make $13 or $14 million. Good luck, bye." – Responding sarcastically on being asked what he’d do next after failing to qualify for the 2018 Australian Open."

People mock him and think he's a waste of space, but it says a lot about culture in these countries - you are considered a nobody unless you have career success and climb the career ladder to impress others. Maybe he finds meaning in other stuff in life?

I think people are just hard on him because of the sorta ignorant/disrespectful comments or attitude Tomic has given off in the past. People in general don't like him and enjoy pointing out how his career is in the toilet essentially.
