Brisbane QF Tomic def Istomin 6-3 7-6(4)

Okay, we all know the draw was pretty easy, but this kid reached his first semi of an ATP-Tour level.
He'd probably lose to Murray, we all know that, but that doesn't affect his good level and his achievment. GO BERNARD!!!

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

Cannot WAIT for the semi against Murray. C'mon Tomic, give the tennis world a mini shock!

His movement is still woeful at times, not sure how much that's ever going to be fixed throughout his career. Fast clay is loving this, or maybe hating it; two of his faves facing off in the semis.

I would not underrate Tomic, Virusss. he looked really quite good in this match.... there is no doubt big things are going to come from this guy and he is still so young.

I have a strong strong feeling he is going to upset Murray, Tomic does things so well for his height. Andy should be concerned

Re: Brisbane QF Tomic def Istomin 6-3 7-6(4)

Wow! I am impressed!

Nard's raw talent and innate tennis IQ have meant that he doesn't even require foot speed to dominate, but his improvement in acceleration and general mobility over the off-season has been astonishing . I could not believe my eyes when he ran down and punished those balls. Just how much scope for improvement does he still have? A very frightening thought for the men's tennis fraternity.

Poor old Istominge had no hope of taking it to a third set when it reached a tie-breaker: TND loves those, and he was as cool as ever.

Tomic has been looking good I don't think it would shock someone who has been paying good attention but you're right haha Australia will freak out if it happens.

Wimbledon last year showed he had the goods though and I think at this point he has the talent and game. would not surprise me if he does

I agree 100% nardog, his movement is so much better than before!!? and his anticipation? literally even if he had started running in the wrong direction or misjudged where a ball would go, he shifted gears immediately and got going. totally impressed

Hope you're right. I see Tomic as a very talented young guy who deserves a really good ranking and give Australia some bite of glory. One of the countries who gave the most to the sport (if not the most important) needs a true hero.
Even if Tomic isn't Australian, he kinda is. Australia supports him and would celebrate his triumphs as theirs. He's representing Australia's flag, that's a really BIG honour to tennis.
I never underrated Tomic, I just think he'd lose tomorrow, but in a few years, he's gonna be very difficult to Murray.
Really deserved SF.

Re: Brisbane QF Tomic def Istomin 6-3 7-6(4)

Very entertaining match and thought both players were quality through most of it. Bernard is showing great maturity for his experience level and held his nerve well against an Istomin that was always challenging particularly in the second set which was probably one of the better sets of tennis I've seen this year thus far.

He wasn't that impressive.... he barely made a dent in Istomin's serve. Had Istomin not been his typical muggish self donating unforced errors at big points on return then it would have gone 3.

Match with Murray will be very interesting.

Agree, everybody needs to calm down, I know NardDog is just trolling though.

He still makes a lot of errors and return from far to back. But the positive from this match is that his top spin forehand is really awesome, it's amazing how much he's improved that part of his game. Still a LOT of work to do though.

Yeah. Istomin actually won a higher percentage of return points. Tomic won the important points though.
