Tomic was born in Stuttgart, Germany, on 21 October 1992. Tomic's parents, Croatian father, John (Ivica) and Bosnian mother, Ady (Adisa), left Socialist Yugoslavia several years before his birth. In an interview, Tomic stated that his parents "have a Croatian background". They were both working in Germany when Tomic was born. The family migrated to Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia in 1996 when Tomic was three years old. His younger sister Sara is also a professional tennis player. Tomic was educated at Southport State School during his primary school years before taking up a sports scholarship at The Southport School for high school.

2004

Before Tomic began competing on the ITF junior tour he stated that he would become the number 1 tennis player in the world, win all the Grand Slams and become Australia's youngest Davis Cup player. He also claimed he would achieve these goals by attaining the serve of Goran Ivanišević, the mind of Pete Sampras, the groundstrokes of Roger Federer and the heart of Lleyton Hewitt. In 2004, 2006 and 2007 respectively, Tomic won the 12s, 14s and 16s Orange Bowl titles – one of the most prestigious events on the junior tour.

2006

Playing his first singles event on the ITF junior tour in 2006, he qualified for the Sunsmart 18 and Under Canterbury Championships in New Zealand and went on to win the title at 13 years of age, defeating Dae-Soung Oh of Korea in the final. His success continued in the following weeks, winning the next three tournaments he played in, giving him a 25 match winning streak. He was able to extend this streak to 26 at the Riad 21 junior tournament in Morocco before falling in the round of 16 to future junior world number 1 and ATP top 50 player Ričardas Berankis.

In March 2006, a 13-year-old Tomic signed a six-figure deal with sports marketing and management giant IMG.
