The ATP will review John Tomic's tour ban next May after he was found guilty of headbutting his son's former training partner.

A Madrid court on Friday convicted tennis coach Tomic of causing bodily harm on Frenchman Thomas Drouet on May 4 outside a hotel in the Spanish capital.

Tomic received an eight-month jail sentence but, in line with Spanish law, he will not have to go to prison because he has no criminal record and the sentence is for less than two years.

Tomic, who is still his son's coach, had his credentials suspended after the incident and the ATP announced in June the ban would remain in place until May.

Had Tomic escaped conviction he could have appealed to have his tour ban overturned.
