Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

Good win for Bernie. Wasnt playing as well, or on his own terms as much as his previous matches but he toughed it out and had great composure after he lost the first set. Good signs.

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

Really needs to make sure he stays up on the baseline from now on though, he was only defending in rallies untill third set where he could dictate

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

I don't really mind his tactics of staying back. I mean it is his game style, he's more likely to return 1st serves and has more time to play his shots and move to the ball. He's quite good at counter-punching but can also generate lots of power from the back as well. He doesn't generate spin so coming forward is not easy for him.

The problem has been that he makes too many errors, as we saw today. He looked very lazy, compared to Hopman Cup where he was serving aces at will, moving so fast side to side and returning very consistently.


I was definitely not impressed by his performance today.

Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013

Damn was hoping he would dodge a top player untill at least the 4th round.
