I think the despair was not at not winning, but at putting a big night out above winning as a priority. This has never been the case with Hewitt. Supporting a player who is giving his all even when not winning (Hewitt) is very different then supporting a player who makes more press for from nightclubbing than tennis (Tomic at times in the past but hopefully less and less).

Surely the upcoming match against Murray will focus Tomic and no one will feel 'why should supporters care whether Tomic wins if Tomic does not care about what happens on court?', instead we will see a Tomic not recovering from a party and worth cheering for whether he wins or not.

If Tomic defeats Murry he gets the seeded ride from then on all the way. If he focus this could be breakthrough.

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

I haven't seen him playing since the Open but I thought he stated he was much more dedicated to tennis than before??

Allez Simon, you rock

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

Bernard did talk about maturing, learning from his mistakes, and focusing more on tennis...but then he goes on and behaves the same way by getting pulled over for speeding, partying, retiring in a match only to go to the player's party later that night, etc.

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

I thought it would be more convincing score but win is a win.

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

Good solid result for Bernie.
Now to raise his game for the potential clash with Murray - it will be interesting to watch.

Will Bernie pitch up ?
or will Bernie pitch up?
Which one?
