Bernard Tomic tried to get his father thrown out of a match at the weekend after becoming increasingly annoyed at his behaviour in the stands.
The Wimbledon 2011 quarter-finalist became frustrated with his old man's antics at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami on Saturday.
Footage shows John Tomic, who is also his son's coach, shaking his head after the 19-year-old fell 0-30 down in the fifth game of the second set against Spaniard David Ferrer.

Spat: Australian tennis star Bernard Tomic tried to get his father thrown out of a match in Miami
Annoying: John Tomic reacted with disdain to some of his son's shots during the match against David Ferrer
The Australian responded by swishing his racquet at him, in a bid to get him to leave, before digging in to win the game.
The world No 38 is then filmed sidling over to chair umpire Cedric Mourier to ask him to remove his tormentor from the stands.
He is heard saying: 'He's annoying. I know he's my father but he's annoying me. I want him to leave but how's that possible'
He later adds, when Mourier asks him what will happen if he asks his father to leave: 'It's not gonna happen. If you see him (coaching), tell him to be quiet.'

Gratitude: Bernard Tomic said 'thanks' when the umpire issued a warning about being coached from the stands
Mourier replies: 'He (John Tomic) knows already. I caught him (coaching) already.' He then issues a code violation warning for illegal coaching, prompting Bernard to say 'thanks'.
The bust-up between father and son came shortly after match commentators had spoken of John's 'negative body language'.
Bernard eventually lost the match 6-4, 6-4.
It is the latest incident to befall the pair, sparking speculation Bernard could soon be in the hunt for a new trainer.
In 2009 John was forced to apologise for ordering his son off the court, because of what he believed was 'poor officiating', during a match with Marinko Matosevic in Perth.
Bernard was then suspended from contesting International Tennis Federation tournaments after obeying his father's instructions.
In 2010, John exploded at Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley over the scheduling of Bernard’s second-round match against Marin Cilic.
