Hopman Cup RR: Raonic(CAN) def. Tomic(AUS) 7-6(6) 6-1

To give Canada the 1-0 lead and Bouchard just beat Stosur in 3 to give Canada the win over Australia. Poland and Italy the other teams in this group. Canada plays Poland tomorrow.

Impressed to see Milos break that many times, ROSbot back in action this year I suppose

Tomic putting in a titanic effort as per usual

More likely the standard Tomic lose a close set then give up routine- worrisome to his fans he's doing that in Australia, which is the one place he used to avoid it

Bernard just completely gave up in that second set. As someone else said, its worrying if he's doing that here

Nothing new or interesting in Raonic's game. Still looks awful once a rally starts. Tomic still tanking after losing a tight first set - no fight in him at all. Talent wise it was clear he's better than Raonic - but head wise he's got a long way to go...

I laughed in the 3rd game of the first set when tomic kept going to milos' s forehand, he must have been the only player in tennis that didn't get the memo!

Wish I could have seen it but I'm still glad to hear that Milos won. Saw bits of Genie's match and she fought her way back. I should have set the pvr cause I'd love to see the doubles.

yeah that was...stupid. You would think that at some point after being punished for it he'd learn to go to the backhand but no

Nice start from Milos to set up the win for Canada in this first match.

Tomic, what an effort in that second set, clownage continues unabated.

Better player won, although that was quite the 2nd set tank from Bernard. This Cup is Canada's to lose.
