Tomic OUTGUNS G. Simon 6-0 6-7 10-6

Tomic with 3 straight wins in the Adelaide exho:

Bernard Tomic's Australian Open tune-up has been, to borrow from Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way.

Tomic completed a hat-trick of wins in the World Tennis Challenge at Memorial Drive by blitzing Frenchman Gilles Simon early then battling through to claim another top 20 scalp on closing night, 6-0 6-7 (4-7) then 10-6 in the super tiebreak.
"It's been a fun three days and I'm really grateful I got the opportunity to play here ... I've learned something going into the Open," Tomic said post-match.

Following wins over Robby Ginepri and Radek Stepanek, Tomic made it three from three by racing out of the blocks to defeat a proppy-looking Simon, the world No.15, in little more than an hour.

Stepanek doesn't care about EXHOs, Ginepri doesn't care about tennis and Simon is mug, what else should I add?

Tomic was the only one giving his all, the rest was merely training.

I didn't see this Simon match, but Stepanek was definitely not being serious in his match against Tomic. He was doing all sorts of jokes, such as standing in the doubles alley a few times to try different serves, hitting lots of trick shots, playing ice hockey with the tennis ball, and in the match tie break when serving he threw about 5 balls up and only hit one (Tomic was so surprised he did not attempt to return and it was an ace :lol:).

This is more about Simon being a clown than Tomic actually being any good.

For once I almost agree with you. After suffering from a knee injury for over six months and only being able to train half an hour a day for the last fortnight, Gillou is daft to even be in Oz. That said if that exo is going to go down in history as Tomic's best ever victory then heaven help the lad :rolleyes:

Is Tomic the really arrogant and cocky player for Australia? or am i confusing him with some other young player.
