OK, I am not posting this because of the importance or quality of the match, but something is very noteworthy here. The thread is dedicated to Voo, with whom I was discussing these scorelines of Tomic
After the epic qualie match with Wang in AO last year 4-6 7-6(13) 7-5, Tomic won three tight tiebreaks against Starace this year. And now in Burnie his results are:
R1: def. Mitsuhashi 4-6 7-6(6) 6-3
R2: def. Matosevic 6-0 4-6 7-6(6)
Of course Mitsuhashi and Matosevic are mugs, but still out of 8 matches the kid played on the tour - 4 ended with the closest socreline possible and Tomic won all these 4 matches. Superb mentality as for 17 y.o.
He plays Polish finest Peter Luczak next.
