Ajla Tomljanovic lashes out after getting grilled about her romance with Nick Kyrgios straight after Wimbledon loss in light of allegations bad boy assaulted ex-girlfriend Chiara Passari

  • Tomljanovic lashed out with an angry tweet over questioning after loss 
  • She was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Kyrgios from 2015 
  • Aussie denied she’d had any experience of assault when she was with Kyrgios 

Just when Ajla Tomljanovic thought her day at Wimbledon couldn’t get any worse after she was bundled out of the tournament in the quarters, she got grilled about her romance with Nick Kyrgios.

The Aussie was heartbroken after blowing a one-set lead to lose to Elena Rybakina 6-4, 2-6, 3-6 and the first question she faced in her post-match press conference was about her relationship with her old flame, who will face court over allegations he assaulted another of his ex-girlfriends, Chiara Passari.

Tomljanovic was immediately asked, ‘You were in a relationship with Nick Kyrgios for some time. You’re aware of the allegations that have been made, investigated by the police in Australia. What was your experience of being in a relationship with him?’

After trying to fend off her questioner – twice – by saying she wanted to keep that part of her life private, she responded: ‘I’m definitely against domestic violence. I hope it gets resolved. But yeah, I mean I haven’t had that experience with him.’

Obviously angered by the ambush, Tomljanovic later tweeted: ‘Quite disappointing that after almost 2 hours of playing my quarterfinals that that was the first question the journalist chose to ask me, and never proceeded to ask anything match related. Glad to see headlines mostly about that now. Do better.’

Kyrgios broke his silence on the allegations against him in his post-match press conference before opening up that he once thought he would never reach the final four of a grand slam.

‘There was a point I was almost done with the sport,’ he admitted.

‘I was self-harming, I had suicidal thoughts.’

Tomljanovic took the opening set to raise the prospect of an extraordinary 51-year Australian tennis first before bowing out 4-6 6-2 6-3 on Wednesday.

Rybakina is the tournament’s ace leader, boasts the second-fastest serve of the 2022 championships and ultimately overpowered Tomljanovic on show court No.1.

But not before Tomljanovic put up an almighty fight.

The 29-year-old played one of the sets of her life to threaten a boilover early on.

Defying her underdog status, Tomljanovic’s fearless groundstrokes and relentless retrieving – including one incredible running topspin lob winner from behind the baseline – earned the world No.44 the first set.

Already the first Australian since Jelena Dokic in 1999 and 2000 to make the quarter-finals, Tomljanovic suddenly looked a chance to deliver the most spectacular and unlikely of encores to Ash Barty’s march to the title last year.

Legends Margaret Court and Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1970 and 1971 are the only Australians to win the Wimbledon singles in consecutive years.

Alas, after losing to Barty in the quarters last year, Tomljanovic again fell at the same stage as Rybakina stepped up with an other 15 aces to dominate the second and third sets.

‘It was a bit disappointing because I felt like I played a really good first set. Actually one of the cleanest sets I’ve played all tournament,’ Tomljanovic said.

‘I felt like the middle of that second she definitely raised her level. She served crazy good.

‘Yeah, just disappointed because I felt like with my game I was really there.’
