Re: Sydney F: Tomic's Maiden Title 6-3 6-7(2) 6-3 over Anderson
routine opening set for bernie but he miscalculated and thought anderson would roll-over and play dead. lulled into a false sense of security, he reverted back to his passive, lackadaisical style in the 2nd, but recovered nicely under pressure in the 3rd and showed great hustle and intensity -- it was easily the best i’ve ever seen him move. his conditioning and stamina were impressive as well as there were several long rallies in the decider and he never appeared winded or fatigued. this bodes well for him at the ao, but he needs to play with the same sense of urgency on a more consistent basis and can’t afford to take his foot off the pedal versus elite players.
