Win or lose, as long as Tomic keeps up his current attitude, I'm happy. Alot better than ive seen lately....he's doing little fist pumps upon winning points looking like he's into the match more, rather than a sort of lulled attitude. So far aswell, when presented with a neutral rally he has been trying to construct points, not pushing nothing.
And bellucci has found some form and just broke back for 3-4 on serve. It will be interesting to see how this match turns out
I agree with Gallace, I was thinking the same actually. He looked into some rallies and went for his shots and didn't give up when Bellucci was serving for the first set, like he often does. It was closer than I expected tbh.
Hope, but it will be tough. In the last three months Bernard has dropped from ranking 36 to 45 while Paire has come from 100 so is on a roll, and is playing on his favourite surface. Winner of the match will be the higher ranked next week.
