Re: Bernard Tomic Video

lol thats supposed to be the future of Australian tennis. It was like watching my neighbour play. my neighbours pretty good hes 14 to and his parents are ex pros and he plays in state tournaments and stuff. maybe it just looked sucky on the camera but the shots looked so weak like it was a warm up or something

Re: Bernard Tomic Video

looks slow because the camera makes the court look shortened...but even still, average tennis....mostly because I can't see shit

found a gem on his website

Jacky Miccini is the better '92 player, you'll see!

Re: Bernard Tomic Video

Can't tell his exact height from this, but it looks like he is going to be quite tall. I was surprised at how weak the serve was for someone that height even if they are only 14.

Re: Bernard Tomic Video

Big difference from Junior to Pro, as Pete Sampras said he was focusing on being a great pro not a great junior, and I'm not sure how Tomic will end up.

He's pretty good for a 14 year old just looking at his results from the last year

Quote:
win Orange Bowl 142/U (USA) 2006
win ITF Int. Adelaide 18/U MAR 2006
win ITF Gosford(Sydney) 18/U MAR 2006
win ITF Int. New Zealand 18/U FEB 2006
win ITF Int. Wellington (NZ) 18/U FEB 2006
but yes, not good enough to make the jump to pro yet. We'll see what happens with him--at this point I'm pretty sure Young could double bagel this kid

Re: Bernard Tomic Video

I should explain a couple of things before anymore of you rip into him, this video was taken when Bernard was suspended and could have been playing in Wimbledon, so I don't think he was the happiest he could have been. Also he didn't play very well he actually lost this match. Since the suspension he has won his last 3 tournaments in 4 appearances, so he would be playing much better than that now.

my neibour is 14 and plays better then what i saw on that vid though so age isnt an excuse. If he was unhappy he wouldnt play as good as he should but still its like he wasnt trying at all does anyone know if he was taking that seriously and also i didnt know he got suspended what was that for?

Heres the thing he was suspended for not trying in Roland Garros, so theres your answer.

Re: Bernard Tomic Video

can u elaborate on that. is that serious u can be suspended for not trying. is it something to do with betting or something or is there another reason the players have to try?
