Re: Any fellow Aussies not like/neutral on, Tomic?
I think a lot of the Aussie fan animosity stems from those people who encountered Tomic when he was a junior and his father John ran his show more closely, ranting and raving at officials, shouting across courts at umpires and opponents, calling lines from 3 courts away. It was quite a show and not very pleasant to witness or be victim of. It will take quite awhile for those persons to warm to the maturer Bernard of today.
At the moment, with all the support from TA, John is toe-ing the line, but who knows in the future? Maybe a time-bomb ticking? or now that Bernard has come of age and potential he will be ok?
