Is Tomic just a worse version of Murray?

It would be funny if he ends up with a better career than Andy. Murray looked 10 times better than him at his age.

Re: Is Tomic just a worse version of Murray?

yeah but there are no up and comers, so tomic might still have a better career when the big 4, blake, haas and russell are gone

also, murray was more aggressive when young, less pushing than he presents nowadays

Re: Is Tomic just a worse version of Murray?

No, I don't think they are similar at all. I actually think that, tennis-wise, Tomic is the more talented of the two - definitely has more raw power and tennis IQ imo - but Murray is physically more gifted and crucially has a much better attitude towards the sport, which is why he's the better player by far and it should remain that way.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Is Tomic just a worse version of Murray?

If he pulls his attitude in where it needs to be then he will do more than Murray because he won't have prime fed nadal djokovic to worry about. All he'll have is raonic and dimitrov and maybe Harrison too if he pulls his head in and magically produces weapons.

Bernard Tomic
Grigor Dimitrov
Richard Gasquet
Nick Kyrgios

Murray was scrawny as hell when he was a kid. His physical attributes are a result of an awful lot of hard work and not down to any "gifts".

Not worse but terrible.

Djoker = GOAT
DelPo = Purger of the Vultures
Hewitt = Llegend
Iron STan = Saviour of tennis
Villains
Nadull - moonballer with zero talent
Ferrer - Talentless Vulture
Tomic - overrated mug who will never win anything big

Re: Is Tomic just a worse version of Murray?

Not sure what's exactly similar. Tomic has awful movement unlike Murray and neither their FH, BH look much similar.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

They are different kinds of players. Tomic won't get anywhere near Andy's achievements though.
