Murray serve a ton of aces, but Tomic seemed to have given up returning after the first set. The strategic MTO didn't help Tomic much, he sort of meekly went away after.

Really? That was easy? It was hardly all one way traffic. I guess its easy to just look at the score and say it was all one way traffic when it clearly wasn't. Tomic lacks the concentration and consistency to maintain pressure, but he dominated Murray for significant portions of the match. All Murray did was wait for Tomic to make mistakes, which he did on some major points.

That was a very fortunate victory. Murray was on toast early, before a foot injury set in for the young virtuoso. I am very concerned; hopefully it's nothing serious.

Amazing variety by The Nard Dogg—splendid finesse! :eek: Each new match, he demonstrates a different facet of his game that has improved sharply. It is a shame he was injured and could not advance to the final, but it could be convenient for him to get some extra rest for the real business soon approaching.

Get well soon, Bernard.

Murray, whom I am really starting to worry about, was just the same old, same old. How is he ever going to reach the next level? Is he satisfied with his mediocre career? :facepalm: Seems like it will just be another pedestrian season for the uninspiring Scot. (And is he cultivating a Krusty the Clown style hairdo with that receding hairline and puffed out sides?) :facepalm:

expected so much more from Tomic! the first set was very good quality and Murray was serving out of this world but a few games in during the second set Tomic was acting strange and got that injury time out and taping on his foot???

I hope this is nothing to serious but his movement was so bad after the timeout and it is especially concerning when it looked like his movement had improve so much! I hope he just was having a bad day and let the foot problem bug him rather than it being a big issue.

Murray looks sharp though

It's obvious Tomic has some measure of talent, but I beginning to detest him. After looking unbelievably early on, he really didn't seem to try after the first break in the second set. If he was so injured he couldn't run for balls, he should have called time out. He didn't look it though, and I've seem him lackadaisically wander around on court before. It looks like he just gave up.

Murray was like a machine on first sere. Tomic struggled to read it all match yet showed that he had opportunities on Murray's second serve. Murray also moved well. There was one point in particular I think at the start of the second set where he chased down a drop shot that looked like a lost cause, then chased Tomic's lob and smacked it over the shoulder for a winner.

Tomic has showed good promise all week. He has a unique style on the forehand side which I enjoy watching - it's very wristy with a short backswing. I'm sure he will continue to do well this year, possibly to the extent of being seeded for Roland Garros and Wimbledon, where he has a lot of points to defend.

Murray looks set to make another seep run into the Australian Open. Playing like this, he really shouldn't be troubled by anybody outside the top 8.

It's arrogance, was the best when he was a junior, and can't deal with losing. So he just acts like he's injured (or at least making it worse than it was) and blame everything on that.

Not really, out of the top 4 players, Murray was always going to be his toughest opponent since their play styles are quite similar only difference being Murray is a little bit better at everything, has the experience, does great against similar styles to himself and is too strong mentally. Tomic has a much better chance upsetting Federer, Nadal and Djokovic IMO as his play style can bother them as he showed us last year.

6-3, 6-2 was the scoreline i was going to predict and the match went pretty much as i expected. both have similar styles but with murray having the edge in every department. he seemed a little less mopey under the watchful eye of lendl, but he still needs to work on the negative body language and the constant grimacing (as if injured).

as for tomic, this was not an encouraging match. he's over two years older than raonic but has accomplished less. more troubling is the fact that he has no real weapons or power. he looked disinterested after the first set.

Milos is 2 years older than Tomic, not the other way round. Raonic and Tomic both don't have the best movement which you just don't suddenly develop. Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray already possessed the same movement, footspeed, court sense and intuition from the moment they arrived on the mens tour.

Shame Tomic couldn't put up a bit more of a fight but the match was fascinating to watch in terms of tactical dynamics.

confused by this post though, Tomic is 2 years younger than Raonic not older.

Yes, but Murray, for all his faults works really hard. Even when he didn't have the movement and strength he does now, you could always sense him trying, working on improvement. Same with Nadal and Djokovic. Tomic doesn't seem to care.

Actually, I agree he might trouble Djokovic and to some extent Olderer, but I don't see him making any impression on Nadal. Nadal chases drops shots and eats up slices for fun. Then again, Nadal hasn't been looking so hot lately.

Wrong. (Bear in mind Fed joined the pro tour in 1998.)
That said, I don't ever see Tomic being a fantastic mover.

This match was NID. Tomic is certainly improving, but he doesn't seem to have the game or mentality to take it to the top guys the way, say, Dolgopolov can do, or an in-form Gulbis theoretically could (if he were ever in-form).

Murray just has too much experience right now to lose to Tomic playing like this. I still see Tomic getting to about R4 of the Aus.

Nice to see Lendl in Murray's box. Hope this means he won't be shouting at his box anymore.

Might? Bro, it has already happened. He gave Djokovic plenty of fits at Wimbledon last year as he should have taken Novak to five sets. Then against Federer, he played a pretty close four set match against Roger on a real grass court.

Similarly, against Nadal in Australia, he was up like 5-1 or something in the second set only to blow like 6 games in a row, so the clues are already there. I mean, I don't see why Tomic wouldn't have success against Nadal, as Murray has had decent success over the years and Tomic is merely a slightly worse Murray with a strong flat forehand.

Tomic can only go up at this point, regardless of where his concentration and dedication may be at this point while the top 3 certainly aren't going to be improving that much over the next few years, so I do predict that Tomic will be someone to look out for if he faces Federer, Nadal and Djokovic.

However, Tomic vs. Murray will be an utter joke always. It'll be like Murray vs. Simon which is a complete disaster for Gilles.

Very true.
For all the flak (for losing GS all the time) that he's been receiving, you can see that Murray is always trying.

And that's the one thing troubling about Tomic: he seems to believe all the hype about himself and his talent, and that when things are not going his way, he just lost interest and gave up.

And that's why he'll never be a Federer or a Nadal, but he'll be allright with a few GS.

Happy to see the Tomic bandwagon brought down to Earth. He's by far the most arrogant of the new kids. Raonic is just boring - he's like Sampras-lite - amazing serve, very dull personality but unlike Sampras doesn't even have the amazing volleys to make you want to watch his game. May grow on me but can't see him delivering too many exciting matches in tennis terms. Dimitrov & Dolgopolov are the most interesting - Dolgo seems like a fun guy & has a game that's great to watch; Dimitrov can also be pretty good to watch (e.g. match at Wimbledon vs Tsonga last year).

The future after the top 4 doesn't look amazing right now if Raonic & Tomic are going to be heading the field. Here's hoping some others rise up quickly. Tomic has no weapons & it's very difficult to win slams these days without a killer weapon - Nadal & Roger had their forehands; Murray & Novak have their backhand. A slice won't get Tomic to the top & his movement is pretty terrible. He's the kind of player who can cause upsets but to see him winning 6-7 slams as some posters are predicting, is a bit much. The Fedalovic era has made people forget that it's not usual for players who make it to the top to win that many slams or have the consistency to be able to do so...

One of the fastest forehands you've ever seen?! Really?! His serve is not a weapon - being consistent doesn't make it a weapon. Raonic's serve or Federer's serve is a weapon - they'll hit a lot of aces & unreturnables - Tomic's serve is nothing like that.

I'm not saying he doesn't have talent. I don't like his personality or the way he looks like he's bored on court and can't be bothered to run to the ball BUT clearly he has talent - his results last year showed that. I just don't think he has enough to be this big dominant force. He may win a few slams - these things are hard to predict - but he will not be winning everything in sight like Fedalovic have managed to do at their peak - just do not see him possessing that kind of game. If he does win a few slams he'll still be the most successful since Hewitt - and who knows he could surpass Hewitt - so there's reason for Australia to be excited but Murray at the same age had more to his game than Tomic does. Luckily for Tomic, unlike Murray he will peak at a time when he's not facing 3 of the best players of the Open Era.

I know little about Tomic- just watched one entire match and a couple of youtube highlights. But I gotta agree with an interview Rafter gave about him: the kid has some weapons but still needs to mature physically. You get the sense that his movement is a bit off and that he just can't hold his ground if the match is too physical.

Since I am not very knowledgeable about Tomic's game, I am failing to see the similarities with him and Murray. There is one thing they have in common, though. When Murray was younger he was, also, this skinny guy with questionable stamina. Say what you want about Andy, but he came a long way from being a player that wasn't physically fit to play long matches.

As for Murray. Not only I want him to win a GS being his fan, but because I can only imagine what will happen on MTF when it happens. There will be some epic signatures ...

2009 - won Doha

2007 - final Doha

Not sure when he played Abu Dhabi but I think he won that as well one year.

Well just as a superstition, if he performs so well every time at the first tournament in a season, than he should start his season in Melbourne and maybe he'll get a slam :p

why we all say congrats but and then everyone will go 16>10>4>1

I think this may be sigworthy for when it happens because you know someone is going to shut up a Murray fan even then :).

Oh will shut them up given that they will go for a Golden Slam end of the era stuff but I get your point :cool:

I know little about Tomic- just watched one entire match and a couple of youtube highlights. But I gotta agree with an interview Rafter gave about him: the kid has some weapons but still needs to mature physically. You get the sense that his movement is a bit off and that he just can't hold his ground if the match is too physical.

Since I am not very knowledgeable about Tomic's game, I am failing to see the similarities with him and Murray. There is one thing they have in common, though. When Murray was younger he was, also, this skinny guy with questionable stamina. Say what you want about Andy, but he came a long way from being a player that wasn't physically fit to play long matches.

As for Murray. Not only I want him to win a GS being his fan, but because I can only imagine what will happen on MTF when it happens. There will be some epic signatures ...

And mentally. You don't win tennis matches by being smug and giving up.

Very nice win. Saw some highlights. Very good from Andy, it seems. A lot of aces too.
That was a very fortunate victory. Murray was on toast early, before a foot injury set in for the young virtuoso. I am very concerned; hopefully it's nothing serious.

Amazing variety by The Nard Dogg—splendid finesse! :eek: Each new match, he demonstrates a different facet of his game that has improved sharply. It is a shame he was injured and could not advance to the final, but it could be convenient for him to get some extra rest for the real business soon approaching.

Get well soon, Bernard.

Murray, whom I am really starting to worry about, was just the same old, same old. How is he ever going to reach the next level? Is he satisfied with his mediocre career? :facepalm: Seems like it will just be another pedestrian season for the uninspiring Scot. (And is he cultivating a Krusty the Clown style hairdo with that receding hairline and puffed out sides?) :facepalm:

Don't speak to me like that.
:superlol:
I was not very active in the forum last year during Muzzalovah peak so I didn't understand why he did so well in ACC.
Now I understand :facepalm:
MuzzahLovah hasn't been clownish in here at all.

I for one am still unsure of how you got so far in the popcon. Weak section of the draw perhaps?
:facepalm:
He has one of the fastest forehands I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot of tennis. He can hit backhand winners from many angles and has a big and consistent serve. Just because he lost a match guys like you saying no weapons is ridiculous.
One of the fastest forehands ever? No, sorry, but he doesn't.
His serve isn't that big. It can be consistent, but the average first serve from him was almost 25km/h below Murray's average.
Something that is a highlight of Andy's career
Are you saying that he gives up? He never does that :lol:
