Tomic on the way to greatness, most unique talent outside of Nadal.

What a pity :o But yes, unfortunately Prakash didn't have much of a chance there, and he already did well to get to the final qualifying round.

Three good wins for Tomic and well-deserved qualifying.

Great accomplishment, really. Hasn't been a good season so far, but he's beaten some good grass court players in Roehampton.

Damn. I was pulling for Amritraj to finally get through a qualifying draw in a slam. But let's see if Tomic can make a dent in the lineup.

I second that. Of course it's not the best thing for him to face a top seed in the first round - instead being drawn against someone he has a decent chance of beating, but how he handles the big occasion on the Centre Court and Wimbledon playing against the defending champion in the main draw of the most prestigious tournament in the world will be instructive as to his ability to handle mental pressure.

Whatever you think of him and his team on a personal level, I'd give him the edge over others in the 1992 generation such as Harrison.


Amritraj will be pleased this week, although sorely disappointed at not having made it through. Hope he can make it through US Open qualies.

Yeah, let's watch Federer beat him without dropping a game. How awesome for the kids confidence. :rolleyes:

Firstly, let us be clear that Federer is not going to triple bagel him. A straight setter might be the most likely outcome (I'm not suggesting that the match would be close like it was against Cilic in the 2nd round of the AO this year), but Federer only tends to make 1 or 2 breaks per set in these types of matches.

Furthermore I made it abundantly clear in my post that facing the top seed is not the best thing for his confidence. I merely speculated that it would provide an interesting perspective with regards to his mental approach to the game. In some ways I think Tomic would relish the challenge of playing on Centre Court for his first match - though of course it may be nicer to play a lesser opponent and gain experience of playing more rounds in a Grand Slam. Not to mention the chance of boosting his ranking a little.

Expected, although Amritraj is s grass specialist, he is a dreadful player....

Never in doubt
