Re: WWW AO RD 3: B-Nard Vs Rogi

I admit I haven't seen Tomic's matches. From what I've read he is serving very well and he's not been broken for a few matches.

I don't know what type of game he played to beat Djokovic but all the "weird shots" won't affect Roger. Roger knows very well how to deal with vareid play. Since Tomic doesn't have much power in his shots and his FH is quite weak I think Roger will take it in 3.

I only saw a small part but Djokovic didn't look much concerned.

Tomic on Roger Federer: Will be interesting if we meet

Bernard Tomic, who has reached his first ATP final in Sydney, is in Roger Federer’s section of the Australian Open draw. Should the 20-year-old and Federer both reach the third round of the Australian Open, they will meet. Federer beat Tomic in the fourth round of Melbourne last year, and also in Cincinnati.



“That third round meet is huge, but the tennis I’ve been playing now, if I can win tomorrow, it’s different approaching the Australian Open,” Tomic said. “It’s different, especially beating the No. 1 in the world [Novak Djokovic] last week and coming in so confident. If I can get that one more match under my belt and have eight matches, it’s a different feeling. I’ll give myself the best chance to play well in the early rounds. If I get to Roger, it’s going to be an interesting match."

I will gladly watch this punk get destroyed by the king of tennis. I can't wait to see it, it'll be beautiful to watch this little twerp's words get spat back at him in the form of a humiliating loss

Then it will be much slower and there will probably be a lot of rallies.

Not sure who it favours but I think it's important because temperatures have a huge impact on the speed of the game in Australia and both players will have to adapt (it will also be an easier day session with 22 celsius maximum)
Interesting news about the weather.

Lol @ the Djokovic comment.

Tomic is the greatest of all time exhibitionist.

It'll be interesting to see how much lube Roger uses for the match, or if he even uses any.

Re: Tomic on Roger Federer: Will be interesting if we meet

nole was clearly still jet lagged during that match.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
