A Spanish court on Monday postponed to October the trial of John Tomic, father of Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic, for allegedly assaulting his son's training partner.
The Madrid court said the trial scheduled for Tuesday was postponed because the plaintiff, Frenchman Thomas Drouet, could not travel to Spain to attend.
Drouet was left with a broken nose on May 4 after a brawl outside a hotel where players in the Madrid Masters were playing.
John Tomic denies assault and says he struck in self-defence, his lawyer Carmen Dieguez said.
