Wimbledon 2017: Bernard Tomic 'bored' during defeat by Mischa Zverev

Wimbledon 2017: Bernard Tomic 'bored' during defeat by Mischa Zverev VIDEO: Bernard Tomic acts like a spoiled child after losing at Wimbledon

Martina Navratilova [above] said Tomic should get out of the sport if that's how he feels.

"Holding a trophy or doing well doesn't satisfy me anymore - it's not there", he added later in the media conference. "I wasn't mentally and physically there to perform. I don't know why, but, you know, I felt a little bit bored out there to be completely honest with you", the 24-year-old told reporters. I couldn't care less if I make the US Open fourth round or I lose first round. To me, everything is the same. "To me everything's the same, and I know I'm going to play another 10 years and I know after my career I won't have to work again, so for me this is mental".

"It's disrespectful to the sport, it's disrespectful to the history of the sport", she said. The world No. 59 player got blasted by those who think he is being disrespectful to the sport.

"I know the way he plays". For sure I don't do the right work.

Tomic's world ranking has slumped from a career high of 17 past year down to 59. Maybe what Bernie needs is a long vacation to clear his mind, and an excellent sports psychologist to help him find his motivation again. "I'm still 24, and it's tough to find motivation", he said.

"I just thought I'd try to break a bit of momentum, to use that as my strategy, because I was just playing very bad and feeling bad out there", he said.

His comments came after a crushing from No. 27 seed Mischa Zverev.

"Obviously a few of us have played some tough players".

6-4 to 29th-seeded Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, who secured victory with his seventh match point.

He dropped serve for the first time soon after to concede the opening set before labouring on for several games until calling for treatment while trailing by a break and 4-3 in the second.

Kokkinakis had no explanation as to the Australian slump.

The 24-year-old seemed to have jarred it while bending down to attempt an innocuous half-volley.

"I will continue to work and try to do well in those USA tournaments and we'll see". We still want to fight and just not give up.

While Tomic's form has fluctuated he's had a number of issues off court to deal with - notably his relationship with his father.

"Hopefully he can get it together because he's a really good player, especially when he's switched on", he said.

1 - of nine Australians who started Wimbledon is still standing - Arina Rodionova.

And Tomic, a junior USA and Australian Open champion without a single semi-final appearance at a Grand Slam in his professional career, was the first to criticise his own preparation for the tournament and in his career generally.
