The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

Making a thread on Bernard Tomic as he makes his junior Grand Slam debut at the 2007 aussie open.

I suspect him to turn pro in the next two years and be playing Davis Cup not long after.

lol as does he, he was born in Stuttgart but I don't start thinking he will play for Germany, He wants to play Davis Cup for Australia he has said and wants to be the youngest ever to play for Aussie.

And as I'm aware he also has Croatian roots.

I'm very anxicous to see how he handles a Junior Grand Slam.

I once played Bernard when he was 9 and i was 11. I lost 6-2. Even then, Bernard knew exactly what to do with the ball, was extremely consistent and had a great court presence. I tip him to make the ATP Top 10 (at least)!!

Yep, He moved to Australia when he was a little baby, so no doubt he will play for Aussie, and Glad he looks so cute and kind, nicer than Mr.C'mon.
He has Croatian roots?

I am looking forward to see him play in the court and some day against Llyton.

Re: The "Bernard Tomic" Cheering Thread!

Bernard played a warm up tournament in Melbourne a couple of days ago,
defeated Peerakit Siributwong of Thailand 6-3 6-3, but was defeated at the hands of the world number 12 Matteo Trevisan of Italy 6-4 6-3.

Thats a good result coming into a Grand Slam against a top 20 player.

He has entered four ITF 18/u clay tournaments and gotten into the second round in three and third round in one. He definetly plays better on hard than clay but says his favorite surface is grass.

I've been following his career for a while now about 2 years as we both live in the Gold Coast. I entered a tournament a couple of years ago and Bernard was the number 1 seed and won the final 6-0 6-0.

Anyway that would be great if you could put some pics up of the magazine article, maybe we could get a Chinese person on this forum to translate for us.
