Your words seem ambiguous as to whether the 'where he will be seeded' applies to Roland Garros or Nice.

I think you mean it to apply to Roland Garros, although being the 4th highest ranked player at Nice, he should be seeded there also.

Re: Bernard on the clay 2012

The Monfils wild card bumped Tomic from a first round bye position. But that's OK, he's still a reasonable chance of making the quarter-finals.

While a first round bye is a gift, a very winnable first round can be even better as long as you deliver the win, and did not go too deep the previous week. Match practice on the court can only help.

Re: Bernard on the clay 2012

Bernard is my third favorite player behind Gael and Jo. Just love everything about the guy. If he can make it to the second week in RG that would be fantastic and it would get him a seed in the mid 20s for Wimbledon. Allez Bernard and heres hoping we get some more Monfils-Tomic matches after their encounter in Kooyong.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

Re: Bernard on the clay 2012

Tomic could make it into the semis if he plays a lax Monfils considering Bernie makes it into the quarters which he should.

I thinks so too. I do hope Bernie doesn't get too frustrated with monfils getting very ball back though and spit out too many errors

Bernard Tomic
Grigor Dimitrov
Richard Gasquet
Nick Kyrgios

Re: Bernard on the clay 2012

He likes to play Monfils, he likes the cat and mouse game. What he hates is players taking the game away from him.
