TENNIS- Controversial Australian Bernard Tomic may lose his $57,000 prize money after losing the second shortest match in Wimbledon history on Tuesday.

Tomic lost 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 to France’s Jo-Wifried Tsonga on Tuesday in just 58 minutes. He may face fine for showing lack of efforts on his part to win the match.

After the loss, Tomic said, “I think I played as best as I could. It’s just I played terrible.”

This is not the first time Tomic has been accused of not trying enough. Two years ago, he was fined after admitting he had faked an injury and complained of being bored in defeat to Germany’s Mischa Zverev.
