Tomic set to lose licence

Australian tennis star Bernard Tomic is set to lose his driver's licence after he was again caught speeding on the Gold Coast. 

After several driving offences across the Gold Coast last year, Tomic was given a one-point licence - effectively a good behaviour bond. However, it was shortlived. 

The Gold Coast Bulletin reported that Tomic was driving his yellow Ferrari at 78km/h in a 60 zone when caught by police. The offence carries three demerit points, which means Tomic will lose his licence. 

Tomic, 20, enjoyed one of his best domestic summers, going undefeated in the Hopman Cup - where he beat world no.1 Novak Djokovic - and claiming his maiden ATP title in Sydney before reaching the third round of the Australian Open where he lost to Roger Federer. 

Tomic is no stranger to off-court controversy, having engaged in a three-hour standoff with Gold Coast police on Australia Day, 2012 after being issued with two tickets in one day for driving a high-powered vehicle in breach of his licence.

He claimed he was being persecuted by police because he had an exemption to drive his powerful V8 BMW M3.
