Sydney: Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic`s father, who is a coach, burst into tears as he was questioned in court about an assault on Frenchman Thomas Drouet, which left him with a broken nose and injured vertebrae.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the court heard on May 4 that Drouet was found unconscious about 3:30 pm outside a hotel in Madrid after an altercation with Tomic`s father but the Judge Jacobo Vigil Levi heard two very different versions as to who hit who and the case was adjourned with Levi reserving his decision for another day.

Bernard Tomic did not see the fight but gave evidence about how his father came rushing into the hotel reception area and said `he hit me`, the report said.

Two doctors also gave evidence and the decision is likely in two to three weeks, the report added.
