Shanghai R1 : Tomic def. Anderson 7-6 (5) 6-7 (4) 6-3

Tomic the only one to take a break point. 24 aces couldn't save big Kev this time. Anderson saved 3 match points, but Tomic handled business.

Bern plays the Fish again.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Should have won in 2. Anderson doesn't last long before he makes a huge shank. Credit to him though that he kept serving big on break points.

Tomic's returning in that 3rd set was great!

Impressive from Tomic to forget that 13 minute game and close the match out to love. Still, he has too ridiculous a game to ever really be a top player.

He'll be a top player, that's never been a question.

Strong, positive performance, could have won in 2 but kept his head well after a long game in the 3rd. Wrapped it up neatly.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

About as much as Tomic's tactic that involves putting the opponent to sleep.

He doesn't have an attractive game but it is starting to look effective and winning matches is what counts at the end of the day. It will be interesting to see how he does against Fish in the next round.

He doesn't do that anymore. But it was funny how many times it did work.

At least Tomic has some knowledge on how to play the game, the stuff that can't be taught. That alone makes his style interesting to me.

His style certainly is interesting. Tomic shows up when 45+ points are on offer (or Davis Cup).
