Controversial tennis player Bernard Tomic admits he feels "trapped" inside tennis, a sport he does not love.
Tomic appeared on Channel 7's Sunday Night TV program and gave a revealing interview to host Melissa Doyle.
The Australian, infamously known for his unreserved comments, even told his fans to watch him on TV rather than go pay to see him in person.
"Don't come," the 24-year-old said. "Just watch on TV, you don't have to pay anything."
Tomic came under fire after his first-round loss in Wimbledon earlier this month, admitting he felt "bored" out on court - a remark which saw him cop a $20,000 fine for unsportsmanlike conduct.
He then came out firing at the Australian public - not for the first time - saying: "End of the day, don't like me or whatever. Just go back dreaming about your dream car or house while I go buy them."
But Tomic says he does not take back anything.
"I don't regret what I said," Tomic said.
"That's why I said it - to piss a few people off."
But when asked what advice he would give a 14-year-old Tomic, the Aussie came back with a revealing answer.
"Don't play tennis. Do something you love and enjoy, because it's a grind, and it's a tough, tough, tough life. My position, I'm trapped. I have to do it," Tomic said.
"Tennis chose me. It's something I never fell in love with. You know, I like it. It's kind of like saying, 'I like a girl - I don't love her, but I like her'."
He added: "Not many things can make me super happy. I don't like to get super happy about anything.
"If I ever get the chance to win a Grand Slam, maybe only then I can truly feel the feeling of being really, really happy."
"Maybe I can light it up and win a Grand Slam or two, so we'll have to find out. Only time can tell."
But for now, Tomic will continue to act the same way on court.
"I'm just going to go about it as a job," he said.
