Whoops: Bernard Tomic 'Hall of Shame' typo

TENNIS Australia (TA) has apologised for a typo in a press release that could have further inflamed the tensions with Bernard Tomic.

TA emailed out a press release on Monday morning which said Tomic was due to play an upcoming match at the "Hall of Shame Tennis Championships".

The correct name for the tournament is the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.

TA issued a hasty apology after it was picked up on social media.

"Tennis Australia sincerely apologises for the typo in the daily results service today. This has now been corrected and we wish both Bernard Tomic and JP Smith all the best in the Hall of Fame Championships in Newport," TA said in a statement.

"This unfortunate error has been widely circulated on social media and there is some discussion as to how such a mistake could occur.''
