AO R1: Tomic def. Rufin 6-3 6-4 6-4

Boring match from what I saw. Rufin doesn't accelerate through his shots at all... Tomic was pretty average as well

Re: AO 1R: [WC]Tomic def. [Q]Rufin 6-3, 6-4, 6-4

I watched all of this game and Rufin shown absolutely nothing during the match, He couldn't handle Tomic's change of pace and Rufin just looked flat.

Tomic wasn't anywhere near his best, although showed flashes of it early third set, But he lost something like three games in a row just through unforced errors or leaving the court wide open from bad positioal play, Luckily he was able to close it out.

The game was never in doubt, But I will agree the match didn't reach any fantastic heights either.

Tomic's style of play is unbearably terrible.

Your just saying that because his style of play is boring to the viewer, but it is what works for him, and his style of play beat Stepanek, Djokovic, Simon & Ginepri all in one week, even if they were playing at 60 or 70%, 293rd in the world shouldnt be number 3 or number 12 in the world if the player wasn't playing above his ranking.

No I'm saying that because he plays like Murray in defensive mode only 10 times worse. Against any decent player those no pace shots he hits every 2 seconds will be gone for winners every time.

Only the 1st round matters for this guy, because he can thrive some time on 45 points. And Rufin, a clay guy, is probably one of the best match-ups for anyone.

Solid pusher tennis from Tomic, more than enough to beat this clay clown Rufin.
