Bernard Tomic - A bright prospect?

A lot of companies seem to think so.

http://foxsports.news.com.au/story/0...-23216,00.html

Anyone know more about his playing style? Does he seem like the real deal or is he over-hyped?

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Bernard Tomic - A bright prospect?

Yes, he is a Croat and definitely one big talent.

Quote:
The Tomic family came to Australia in 1996. John has been driving a cab. He had an import-export business in Croatia. His wife, Adi, is studying biomedical science.
"We left Croatia because of the war and spent some time in Germany, but we had some family here, so we decided to move here," John said. "It is the place where Bernard can make it happen."

Re: Bernard Tomic - A bright prospect?

Is Tomic one of the most common surnames in Croatia?? I think this because is the most common balcanic surname in Chile

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Re: Bernard Tomic - A bright prospect?

This kid is not over hyped. He was in my academy about 3 years ago. I coached him a couple of times.. he is the real deal very talented, but you can say that alot about some players that come out of Australia. But unless he moves to Europe to get the match practice that you cant get in Australia then he will never reach his full potential. He will be one to watch in about 4 years. His father is Yugosl and very strick. Additionally, it shows that the kid really wants to win every match he plays, cause he is very tight on his line calls... lol. if you know what i mean!

Re: Bernard Tomic - A bright prospect?

Have a look at his website:

http://www.bernardtomic21.info/latest.htm

The results page is quite amazing:

He'll probably be a top 10 player one day!

Re: Bernard Tomic - A bright prospect?

I've heard of him winning a few U18 tournaments when he was 13.
But its too hard to say if he'll be good when hes only 13. It puts too much pressure, and no 13 year old is worth big sponsorship deals as its too unpredictable.

Re: Bernard Tomic - A bright prospect?

The Australian press are desperate for another top player and every time a junior or a young player shows promise they go overboard. Tomic is a big talent now and I hope he does well. I also hope the press give him a break.
For everyone who is not australian please remember that 40% of Aussies have a parent or grandparent born overseas. We have a huge cultural mix, and many many different last names.

Bernard Tomic the next big thing

Just curious to see how many people have heard of this junior espically people outside of Australia.

This 14 year old has been billed as the next Lleyton Hewitt he burst onto the big scene when he won the junior orange bowl 12/u and became the world no.1 for under 12s, since then he began his itf tournaments in 2006 and won his first four in a row under 18 tournaments and is currently the under 14s world number one and has recently won the under 14s junior orange bowl and made his junior davis cup debut this year. I am expecting big things from this kid as he is from the same ciy as me the Gold Coast i went in the same tournament as him a couple of years back where he won the final 6-0 6-0.

Re: Bernard Tomic the next big thing

I have two words for you:

Carlos Boluda

I have seen him play and with 14 years old he plays better than some pro's.

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!
