Tomic, interesting spot to be in. Has a serious shot at making the QFs.

Malisse should obliterate Tomic.

The way Malisse played today he will school Tomic. Big experience advantage for Malisse here, his chance to ever ever get to a QF again

Aha, here's the one complete surprise QFist I was hoping for (Lopez wasn't that unlikely given his draw and form).

The last time Malisse made a slam QF - Wimbledon 2002.

Great chance for X-man.

It will be a close match.
I don't know who will win, not a single idea.
I didn't saw any of Malisse's matches this wimb, but Tomic is playing really well.
So i'm going with Tomic in 4.

Malisse will probably win, too much experience and plays such a similar game to Tomic that he'll probably get home.

Hoping for a Tomic win though, obviously :)

I hope Malisse in 3, maximum in 4, because he always starts a bit slow.

Come on X! Great chance for another QF run at Wimby!

Malisse will win something like 6-3 6-2 6-3. Tomic has zero chance of winning whatsoever unless Malisse plays awful.

I think Malisse will win too but may I ask why you are SOOOOO confident it's going to be a beatdown??

Perfect match-up for Malisse and he has the experience at this stage in a major.

credit goes to tomic for getting this far but he hasnt really played another grass courter

xavier's specialty is on grass, he's got a ton more experience and he's been playing great stuff all week

xavier in 4

I'd like Malisse to win, he merits another slam QF, but I actually see Tomic outlasting and perhaps even outsmarting (!) him.

Tomic in five fiery sets.

Tomic is toast

X-man will win in three easy sets

I'm sure even Tomic himself knows how lucky he was that somebody put vegemite in Soderling's pasta which caused the Swede to pass-out and almost faint!

Great opportunity for xman, probably his last run in a major. Tomic will have his day but not this tournament.

X-Man to end Tomic's run.

Malisse is playing very well but I get the feeling TOmic will win this, he also looked fantastic against Soderling and I am not sure if Malisse can handle him from the baseline

Malisse to stop the otherwise unbearable bandwagon coming up. Do your job, X-man.

Surprised by poll & comments. Tomic likes grass too you know & Malisse is past it. Tomic in 5.

Raiden

Tomic "beating" of a semi-passed out Robin has to be the biggest lucky shot in Wimbledon history.

Even I could have beat the half-fainting Swedish zombie yesterday.

So I expect Xman to feed delicious bakery products to the food-poisoning profiteering Tomic.

Fingers crossed that Xman makes it to the quarters!
He played fantastic yesterday.
Komaan Xavier :woohoo:

Obviously I want Tomic to win, but Im thinking 4th round at Wimbledon is might just get to Tomic. Malisse has alot of experience over Tomic and hes been playing well. They have played each other so at least Tomic will be familar with him. Im hoping Tomic, maybe in 4.

Dund

I guess everyone saying it will be straight sets to Malisse is forgetting the fact that Tomic has played Malisse before, on grass, and lost in 3 sets (in a best of 3). That was a year ago, and Tomic has clearly improved since then. Tomic will take a set or two off Malisse at least, even if he doesn't win.

The fact is, most players don't like playing against Tomic due to his style. No matter how hot a players form is, Tomic seems to have the ability to disrupt an opponents rhythm and have them second guessing themselves. He'll do it to Malisse if not for the whole match, at least for some of it. It's about whether Malisse can work it out and get his rhythm going.

Ooh, tough one.

Would say Malisse's experience will get him through in 4 or 5. Should be a good match.

I have a feeling the cocky little rat will win, but I'm hoping Malisse knocks him out.

Depends on the start, Malisse has been slow in his matches, then upped the tempo and he was brutal! Don't give the brat head start, Xavier!

Why do people constantly refer to Tomic as a cocky brat? :confused:

X-man will win this one. Tomic's time will come in a few years time.

Please provide proof to back up your claims of him being cocky. His post match interviews show nothing of the sort.

5-0 at the moment to Tomic, Malisse to wipe the floor with Tomic my arse.

I think Tomic can be a bit of a cock, but has been majorly influenced by his parents about it. Too much so
