The difference could be...
1) Tomic is just worse on clay and Dolgopolov is not
2) Tomic is better over 5 sets relative to Dolgopolov
3) As suggested by Pat Rafter, Tomic has dropped back instead of moving ahead since the Australian Open.

Or perhaps some combination of the above?

Personally I think the issue is more that he has not continued to move ahead in the intervening months, but there have been distractions and hopefully things can now change.

You didn't watch the match did you? Don't post stupid stuff if you didnt watch it.

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

Dolgopolov has always been a tough opponent for him. I think it is good that he got a win on clay this week and look forward to seeing what sort of progress/improvements he makes over the next month.

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

After watching the first set of the match, i hope bernie works over the next few weeks on improving his penetration with the backhand....when ppl like to just go backhand to backhand and slice for slice like dolgo....it seems he's got a little bit of trouble trying to produce something else off of a standard ball o his backhand...needs more confidence to swing a bit more freely....i remember when he was playing i think 2-3 years ago and his backhand up the line was very good, consistent and penetrating.... hopefully he will earn that back

Well all you have demonstrated is that you know how to be rude. Possibly simply a child, but lets give the benefit of the doubt and assume you are being rude because I am suggesting that Tomic can rise further in Tennis and that angers you as a you must be a Tomic hater.

Well - a much different tone of reply, disagreeing with humour and no risk of offense at all. I will assume that the tone I read into the earlier message was not the tone inteneded. It is a pleasure to have differing points of view when the points can be argued in a civil and ideally, as you just managed, with a tone of humour.

Yes he has converted to a more forehand player now, and he slices too much from the backhand and it's becoming predictable.
