RG Boys' Singles R3: Pella def. Tomic 7-6, 6-3

Tomic is the top seed for this year's junior event. Somewhat of a shock scoreline; the two had a much closer encounter at the Australian Open earlier this year, Tomic beating Brunken 5-7, 6-3, 8-6.

The win lifts Tomic to 9 and 0 at Grand Slams this year.

Tomic plays Guido Pella next, who crushed another Aussie junior, Andrew Thomas, 6-0, 6-4.

Tsung-Hua Yang, who lost to Tomic in the final of the Australian Open, is still in the event. He plays Evgeny Donskoy in the quarterfinals.

The winner of Tomic and Pella plays the winner of Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and Polish hope Jerzy Janowicz, seeded fourteenth and twelfth respectively.

In the other half of the draw, the victor of Donskoy and Yang will play the winner of an interesting match-up between Soong-Jae Cho, who defeated ninth seed Ryan Harrison in three sets, and second seed Cesar Ramirez of Mexico, who fell to Tomic in two sets in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, but is undoubtedly a more formidable opponent on clay.

Draw can be found here.

Re: RG R3: Tomic def. Brunken 6-0, 6-3

Tomic is unquestionably the most talented junior around, but I don't think he's gonna win this one. Clay isn't really his surface just yet.

He grew up in Queensland, like me. Thing is, when I was a kid there were heaps of clay-like courts but they started ripping them all up about 10-15 years ago and there's hardly any now. That's why guys like Draper and Rafter did ok at the French...cos they knew how to slide. I fear it'll be an unhapy hunting ground for Queenslanders from now on though.

i linesmaned one of drapers match in my hometown in nsw... on fast clay in a sattelite masters final... he went to tokyo n lost to agassi in a qf then made the 4th round of the french... my last year in school i think 95... or maybe 94... he could play on that dry clay so well... i still think my hometown has the 12 clay in town... not sure...

but yeah... like you say... so sad that clay court tennis in oz kinda died... no one wanted to put in the time and expense like they did in other years and the cancer of syngrass spread...

word has it that all the aussies of the golden age had to build their level up on the clay in the country areas... then... only the best would get to the grasscourt events in the city...

seemed a reasonable system to me...

today... just syngrass n hardcourt predominantly...

sorry... every chance i get to have a whinge about that i do...

100% agree with you... it's a disgrace. You wonder what TA hopes to achieve by this

It's hard enough to find good hardcourts these days too.

Anyways back on topic, here's hoping that Tomic might just overcome that.

Expected win from Pella still watching sb Tomic had chances to break back in the 2nd set quite alot. This kid has a bright future still only 16 is it? I hope to see him do well in the pros when he's older. From the few youtube videos I've seen he looks good but haven't seen him up at net yet.
