FORMER world No17 Bernard Tomic appears to be dating ex-Love Island Australia contestant Vanessa Sierra.
The Aussie, now ranked 224 in the world, hasn’t played since the tour temporarily shutdown in March.
Vanessa appeared to confirm her relationship with Tomic on Instagram

But he appears to have been busy off the court.
Tomic, 28, has never been far from the headlines amid tanking accusations, public spats and legal issues.
But this time, he appears to have found love.
Vanessa, who was in the top 0.01 per cent of content creators on OnlyFans with ex beau Luke Erwin, uploaded a video of her and Tomic to her Instagram story.
The clip, complete with floating hearts, sees the 2011 Wimbledon quarter-finalist kissing her on the cheek.
And she again confirmed that her and Erwin are over with another post, after he was accused of being unfaithful.
Tomic himself was linked with Bachelor contenstant Kaitlyn Hoppe, 26, earlier this year.
But they have not been in contact for over two months.

Tomic has long been one of the ATP Tour’s most divisive characters.
Having struggled to cope with early success, and the guidance of controversial father John Tomic, Bernard’s career has veered from one extreme to the other.
Two years after his breakthrough result at Wimbledon, father John was arrested and jailed for eight months after headbutting Bernard’s hitting partner Thomas Drouet.

He recovered to record his career high No17 ranking in 2016.
But his form and application appeared to veer off a cliff, culminating in an embarrassing four-day appearance on Australia’s 2018 edition of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
He appeared to turn a corner, remarkably returning to the ATP winner’s circle with a title in Chengdu just eight months later.
But his form and application has again been in question since, having been fined his entire prize money after a 58-minute loss to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon last year, for a perceived lack of effort.
