It turns out Tomic is not even the standout case in this tournament of players getting away with pocketing Wimbledon’s prize money under controversial circumstances.
Tomic’s clear lack of effort — and his brazen admission — ultimately cost him one third of his $45,000 prize money, and his racket sponsor Head (which stood behind Maria Sharapova during her doping ban) dropped him Thursday.
Lopez retired against Adrian Mannarino in the fourth set of their first-round match before teaming up with his brother Marc as the No.
Bernard Tomic’s clumsy press conference made him the face of Wimbledon’s payday loophole crackdown, but he’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The number of first-round retirements prompted Federer to admit it is not a good look for the sport.

White marlin lie wins NJ fishermen over $2 million in prize money
How the Dispute AroseHeasley was declared the winner of the 2016 White Marlin Open tournament, held last August when he landed the tournament namesake, a white marlin.
How the Money Breaks DownThe white marlin is worth the most prize money in the competition because it’s a difficult fish to catch.
Now, the New Jersey trio can add another $2,025,046 to their prize money.
The fish would have earned Heasley $2.8 million in prize money.

British tennis star Johanna Konta has called on authorities to review how prize money is distributed for major tournaments like Wimbledon.
However, López courted controversy when he returned to contest a first round doubles match just 24 hours later.
This means they can claim more prize money despite their alleged injuries.
López lost the doubles match but netted £5,375 for that first round doubles appearance, ensuring his Wimbledon pay packet reached £40,375.
On Tuesday, ticket holders saw López retire during the fourth set of his first round match against Adrian Mannarino.
