Tomic is playing the match of his life, he just has a better player in front of him, nothing more, nothing less.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

4-1 in the 3rd, after the early trouble in his 1st servicegame things look good. Perhaps he just wanted Tomic to have a lower BP % conversion rate than himself?

One more game and Lendl's record is history.

This is the second most important match all year for Roger, IMHO. R3 at RG is more important than this one. It speaks volumes as to how far he's come, doesn't it?

Re: ♕ 2013 Australian Open ♕ - R2 def Davydenko 6-3 6-4 6-4. R3 Tomic

Okay, so he defeated Tomic 6-4 7-6(5) 6-1.
He only faced one break point in the whole match. WOOO!!!

Stats:
Aces: 11
DF: 4
1st serve in: 69%
1st serve won: 88%
2nd serve won: 45%
W/UE ratio: 46/20
Break points conversion: 3/16

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

Re: ♕ 2013 Australian Open ♕ - R3 def Tomic 6-4 7-6(5) 6-1. R4 vs Raonic

Fed's serve-games were almost never in danger. He wasn't broken again vs a very good rival who played his best tennis ever.
And, a lot of Tomic's serve-games came to deuce, that's really good for Roger. KEEP IT UP, CHAMP!!!!

It was a great match I'm happy about the play. Respect to Tomic, but Roger was too good. Raonic next!
