No way it should end against a punk like Tomic.

They worked against Murray Wimby 2009.

I'm glad I watched this. People here being incredibly harsh on Tomic. I personally think he couldn't have handled that press conference any better. Absolutely spot on with all his answers.

I use to hate Tomic but now I think he's a perfectly reasonable guy.

Try that against any member of the top 4 and it's a very different outcome.

I just think against better opponents, he'll need to be more careful about when he comes into the net.
It's not just about the quality of passing shots. Andy read, anticipated and executed most of his volleys to perfection. It's more about attitude and concentration than technique. He doesn't have a great approach or technical volley but when focused he can reach and put away almost anything at the net. He's done it before just not often enough. People underestimate how volatile his form has been throughout his career.

Exactly.

Hypothetically? I bet he'd continue. But his chances are < 0.00001%.

Actually, I think if he made the final and lost he'd reconsider. But even that is < 0.0001%.

Tomic seems very dim witted and comes across very poorly in that interview. Can he speak English properly? "Yeah..no..that's your prediction" prediction about what. Also is he trying to bully a reporter "I'll remember yuh"?

To be fair, the reporter asked him a real shitty question. He dealt with it OK.
I wish he had trolled harder, given that it is Bernard "top 5 backhand" Tomic.

yeah agreed he came across poorly. Needs lessons from Fed on how to handle press conferences. That and media training. But he probably doesn't have the money for all that given lack of results.

Re: USO '12 R2: Awesome Roddick humiliates Tomic 6-3 6-4 6-0

Every time I see Tomic play, I find myself wondering how he ever made the quarters at Wimbledon. He sort of reminds me of a poor-man's-Santoro, only that I found Santoro a lot more enjoyable to watch.

I'm happy for Roddick that he scored the win. It would have been a shame if Tomic, of all people, got to end his career.
