Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2012

I landed in NY today at 3 and rushed like crazy to get there in time for the match at 7. Got there in time and saw it all - pathetic performance.

I will post all my pics/vids when I get back on Monday.

Id have to agree with the pathetic performance, it was extremely dissapointing to say the least, credit to roddick for playing very well, but all Bernard was doing was hitting the ball back, no purpose, no aggression, just waiting for roddick to come to the net on a short ball and finish the point....I have empathy for you JW going through all the effort to get there and then have that performance : (

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2012

I think this may have been the first time I felt really sad during a match...

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2012

On another note, did you guys watch his press conference?? Sass. It's on the US open website. I'd post it here but I can't so... He got sassy near the end.

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2012

Well he kind of snapped/talked back to a reporter and then asked for his name and was all "okay i'll remember you" when he was asked about the third set. Sorry I couldn't think of another word. But if you watch it you'd totally get what I am saying

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2012

very very dissapointing performance. i expected him to beat roddick and make some impact you know, like the leader of new gemeration beating the old dogs. so sad it was the opposite, bernie is still the future, not the present...

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2012

Who would you rather watch - Hewitt giving his all or that "could not care for the paying public, get me off this court" pathetic performance?
Bernie should at least try - oh - why bother, save my breath...

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2012

Thanks for posting the interview....does anyone know if there is a transcript anywhere?...i could not hear clearly the questions that upset him....Tomic's voice was very clear, but I could not make out what the reporter asked.
