Thought you lot found everything Tomic says hilariously entertaining.

Gotta love honest people. T-bomb knows he's going places, and he answers the questions people ask him to reflect that, like every good Aussie does. What a champ.

And anyway, it is too really to give a proper assessment of these two as tennis players. They've haven't done anything of note outside of Tomic's QF run and that was back in 2011.
This is how the meter reads now:

Tomic: 1 slam QF; 1 ATP title; more hate on MTF (like Djoker, Nadal, Fed)

Dimitrov: Slam 2nd Rd; 1 ATP final; more sympathy on MTF (like Gasquet)

Fed gets hate on mtf? He's been voted the favourite player player for seven consecutive years!

2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Active Players (Federer wins for the 7th consecutive year)

How much more do you want? Total unanimity in the voting? Absolutely universal adoration?

Nobody gets the hate Nadal gets here.

Nobody gets the love Roger gets here.

In that thread, Nadal came 2nd in 2009 and 2010, rendering your point invalid.

Bernard Tomic, on his potential meeting with Roger Federer in the third round, started thusly: "If he gets that far..."

Haha. Too brilliant.

In a post match interview during Hopman Cup, he said "all credit to myself" or something like that.


B-Nard.

Re: I can be the best player ever: Tomic

I so want now Fed to teach this kid again like year ago. He was too kind last year, bagel is extremely needed this time.

Gasquet is next №1

Why does he always feel the need to invite undue criticism and negative reporting?


Be as much confident as you can, but please stay balanced and modest FFS!

That's the hallmark of all great champions

Re: I can be the best player ever: Tomic

Tomic thinks he can be best player ever.. OK, when is he planning to replace his head then? His work morale is nowhere near reching top 5 in any near future. Has he ever played good tennis two weeks in a row?

They grow up thinking they hope someday to be number 1, but not even Federer thought he'd be in the running for best ever. You can tell by how he treasures that first Wimbledon - he knows how hard it was to finally win a grand slam after all the expectation.

I'm not a Nole fan, but he always gives credit and respect where it's due. Whatever he said could possibly be excused as English being his second language. Tomic has no excuse. He needs to heed the advice from Fed in his South American interview - in this day and age, there's a camera/video EVERYWHERE. One must be careful of what one says.

And as far as Safin is concerned, anyone who can thrash Sampras as he did as US Open Final and go toe-to-toe with Fed and beat him in his peak, can say what he wants. Too bad he didn't have the head to realize that talent to its full potential.

Re: I can be the best player ever: Tomic

I can't even hate Tomic. He needs some success before that. I hope he doesn't start at this AO though.
