The Aussie is in the news again, and it's not good news.

Bernard Tomic is in the news again. And, once again, the news is not good.

The controversial Aussie was fined £45,000 ($56,000) for his lack of effort against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga during his first-round loss, which lasted only 58 minutes.

Here’s the statement from the All England Club:

“It is the opinion of the Referee that the performance of Bernard Tomic in his first round match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga did not meet the required professional standards, and therefore he has been fined the maximum amount of £45,000 which will be deducted from prize money.”

After the match Tomic was questioned about his effort by reporters and said the following: “I think I played as best as I could. It's just I played terrible. And he served 24 aces.”

It's not the first time that Tomic has been fined for lack of effort at Wimbledon. He was fined 11,000 for his effort against Mischa Zverev in the first round in 2017.

"This is my 8th Wimbledon or 9th I think," he said. "I'm still 24, and it's tough to find motivation, you know. Really, me being out there on the court, to be honest with you, I just couldn't find any motivation."

The Aussie has the right to appeal this judgement.
