Yani beats Bernard Tomic

This may not be worthy of a thread, but great win for US journeyman Michael Yani who rarely picks up challenger level match wins. He put out Bernard Tomic at the Sarasota Challenger yesterday. It looks like Tomic may have a ways to go before he's ready for the big tour. Go Yani!

Re: Yani beats Bernard Tomic

In fact, two things helped Yani:
1- Tomic sucks a bit now on clay.
2-They were playing in USA.

He won 7-6 in the third.

Re: Yani beats Bernard Tomic

I love Tomics lazy forehand. Truly he is a stud.

Re: Yani beats Bernard Tomic

What round of the tournament was it?

Anyway, it'll be interesting to see if Tomic won't get triple-bagelled at his French Open R1. Clay's not his surface by the sounds of things.

Re: Yani beats Bernard Tomic

Tomic would probably lose to Starace 1-6 1-6 1-6 on RG.
Just kidding, he would take at least 10 games.

Re: Yani beats Bernard Tomic

Mike got into a groove about this time last year, then won Yuba City from the qualifying rounds and got into USO qualies for the first time in his career. Shortly after that he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his leg and sat out for months. Glad to see him doing well, would be nice to see him defend Yuba City.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Yani beats Bernard Tomic

Tomic can't do much worse than last year's Wildcard recipient Smeets. Maybe Australia should think about getting rid of the reciprocol wildcard with the French as come French Open time we out of players to give it to but at Australian Open time there are always a couple of players who are unlucky to miss out.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Re: Yani beats Bernard Tomic

Never liked Tomic. He always came off as a little arrogant prick to me.

Nice to hear he lost.

Well, a spanish guy to like some white aussie with slavian origins is something very difficult really. There are some nations that simply don´t mix well together.

Well, I'm not Spanish, my father is white, and I date a Serbian girl. So much for your theory.

But it has nothing to do with his race. That was the last thing on my mind.

Yeah Tomic's attitude reminds me of Hewitt, what a yellow bastard. Comes from upbringing.

Okay I was kidding. In fact, I like arrogant people, they are funny.
Spanish= white. In fact [2] I hope Tomic becomes a very arrogant champion, we miss bad guys lately.
