Re: Bernard Tomic at 20, slamless and title-less.

The issue isn't Tomic's lack of success or awkward game style, it's his personality and sportsmanship.

Re: Bernard Tomic at 20, slamless and title-less.

That he will be slamlles in 20 was clear, without title - well his fail, but with his movement, ROS and bad serve for his height no wonder he haven´t won tournament so far - i forgot his attitude, he needs to improove in every department otherwise so far heis not better than other youngsters.

Yeah, didn't even reach an ATP final yet. Overrated for sure.

Possibly yes, but it will have to do more with competition than his own level of tennis

Re: Bernard Tomic at 20, slamless and title-less.

He was a teen major champion, he won the junior AO...

Many players peak too early, he was a pretty good junior yes, but there have been many of those who end up poor as a pro, take Peliwo for instance, he has had an amazing run the last year making 4 junior major finals and winning 2, but is anyone talking him up as a future star of the game, no.

When his PTS come off of Brisbane and the AO his rank will fall, not go up, right now he just doesn't have what it takes to be a future star of this game.

Re: Bernard Tomic at 20, slamless and title-less.

I don't care about Tomic but for the sake of the game players like him need to start going places.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

tbf it's not just juniors he did well at - he won 2 Challengers when still a junior. Most people who win 2 or more Challengers as a junior tend to be guns, to varying degrees. That bodes well for Tomic, though there are always exceptions to the norm.

IMO he should start playing Challengers again. He'll be ranked around 80-90 post-AO if he doesn't improve his results, it'll be interesting to see whether he has the balls/heart required to get himself out of this downward spiral.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

This is just too sweet 'Mugray' has more fortitude in one pube than that lazy clown. Probably more talent as well.

I said ot from day 1. Tomic is a joke. he is not better than the average club player but people thought he was the god of the next century.

Re: Bernard Tomic at 20, slamless and title-less.

You guys don't get it...only the real fans know what's going down. See, Bernie knows that with the current era of RF, RN, ND, and AM, there's no point putting in the extra effort.

He's biding his time, you see. Just floating around and deliberately getting bageled ...he'll start making his move in 2016 when all these guys have retired or gone to seed. Boy will we be in for something. Go Tomic!!

Like it or not but he is the best player 20 and under.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
