Aussies - is anyone else sick of the endless Stosur and Tomic hype?

It's SO annoying. All day Monday, before her match started, 7 TWO must have previewed it about 15 times, and gone about how her and Schiavone had played in the RG final, how she'd won the USO, and how she has a great chance to win the AO. Then yesterday and today, the endless previewing of Tomic's match, and how he too is going to be some kind of GOAT. We get it, Tomic is going to play in Kooyong today against Tomas Berdych. You don't have to say it 100000000 times.

i mean i get the TOmic bandwagon, he's so young, but Stosur is like 27, unlikely she's going to get better, maybe worse

It's stupid to make any hype around 19 year old kid who is #37 in the world. If he is top 10 or top 20, than it would be ok.
Stosur is good, so that's ok.

I am more annoyed by 7 TWO showing absolute mugs and has beens like Ebden, Matosevic and Hewitt instead of decent matches.

Stosur is a GS champ after all and Tomic is a somewhat promising player...

This. Every year they show the "promising young Aussie's" or the "Aussie up and comers" matches, which 90% of the time the Australian loses in straight sets anyway, instead of decent matches on the main courts between high ranked players, it's ridiculous. :o

tomic is carrying a heavy burden behind that laid-back demeanor. i hope it doesn't cripple him.

That's a bit harsh to Ebden. He had a good win on Monday and is currently up 6-3 4-4 against Bagdhatis.

The thing is, though, of course I understand the hype, but this is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY overboard.

Stosur is good, so that's ok.

oh please, Tomic at 19 has more talent than Stosur will ever have it just happens that the WTA is a complete mess.

and you can mark my words that Tomic will end with more Grand Slams by the time he is done than Stosur, and it won't even be close

I couldn't disagree more. Tomic just got destroyed in Brisbane and has done absolutely nothing of note. Stosur won the last grand slam by beating Serena Williams. If that isn't deserving of hype, I don't know what is.

Stosur: Who cares?

Tomic: Bring it on! The more hype, the better. I have just witnessed him destroy Berdych in very difficult conditions. I don't think many people realise what kind of a talent he is just yet.

I hated Stosur since I can remember, never liked her. She gets so much hype here and never produces. Error machine and choker. I can understand Hewitt because he was such a champion, but in the last few years I just say in my head "get over yourselves Australia, he sucks now".

Nothing wrong with the Tomic hype though.

How is 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 destroying someone? :confused:

I hope that he draws a top seed and loses in the 1R.

Isn't Berdych losing to a talentless Australian in an Aussie exo where good players are paid lots of money to tank to talentless home favorite hacks pretty much expected?

Piss off. This is Australia and it's Australian tournaments and an Australian broadcast. They have every right to promote promising Australians, and it will likely make more Australians take note. It's exciting for Australians and that's all that matters. Stop being a spoil sport knob. If you don't like it watch something else.

Wtf? I thought Tomic was a mug? What the hell is this promising player business? Surely you aren't backing away from your statements?

it's natural that they'd focus on them - Tomic's run in Wimbledon and Sam's 2011 preformance do warrant attention - Swiss TV focuses Roger/British on Andy - French on Tsonga / Monfils...etc

What do you expect? Both players had excellent success at slam level last year. Its better than the media hyping up Hewitt on one leg just so he can lose an epic 5 setter in the first round.

Stosur is #6 in the world while Bernie boy is just #37. I love the kid but he needs first to beat someone from top 4 at AO this year and than bring up that fucking hype. Any hype before that just saying that australian tennis really sucks when you compare what they have been earlier.

Never produces? Didn't she just win the last grandslam...? Otoh, Tomic hype is fine even when he has not won a grandslam yet or has even reached a GS final? I don't understand this reasoning. Double standards.

WTA may be crap but it's not like Stosur beat some unknown at the USO final, she beat Serena fucking Williams. That's an achievement and of course she's going into her next grandslam tournament with a huge amount of hype considering she just won the last one.

Nothing wrong with a bit of patriotism, happens everywhere. US networks show Serena repeats on delay over live tennis, Wimbledon organisers favour Murray by putting him on the roofed Centre every match and the French crowds get hostile against foreign opponents.

Look at her career. I don't care if she had one good slam, doesn't change the fact that I hate her.

But as I said her hype is valid. I just don't like her that is all.

hahaha what a joke, if you don't see the potential and talent that 19 year old Tomic has then you are being stubborn on purpose.... :o

at 18/19 whatever he was, he pushed Djokovic at WImbledon last year???

there is no young player out there who i am so confident in to win slams as much as I am with Tomic.

it's common sense, look at his game. mega talent and will likely be a huge force in tennis in a few years

with Stosur it's a little too late. one grand slam is great but she is not known for being able to keep this up in the long run

I agree he definitely has stuff left to prove but who actually doesn't think this guy will be a top 5 player in the future? he definitely will. if I were an Australian I would hype the shit out of this guy because it's one of those rare times when you can be pretty confident that they are going to keep doing better and better, Tomic has just improved ever since arriving in Australia a few years ago with his sunglasses and funky laid back attitudee

I will make a prediction that actually many people here will laugh and call me a delusional fan, but I actually predict that at the end of their carrees, Tomic will have more slams than Nole. And that will indeed happen!

that might happen...I mean Tomic will play in weak ass era where only he will be any good while Novak is playing against two GOATS.....but let's wait till the kid wins 1 OK and till Novak is done winning them

Exactly. It's nothing new for countries to focus much more on their own players in tournaments than players from other countries, whether it's right or not.

As for the debate as to whether Tomic and Stosur are worth attention, I would say they definitely are.
Stosur has won a slam, beating Serena Williams in the final. She's earned the spotlight. I don't think she'll win the AO, but good luck to her in her quest to do so.

Tomic, while I'm not overly keen on him, has a great game, shows a fair amount of court craft and has delivered performances which warrant excitement from anyone who follows him. He could well have a big future in the game. I'm a Hewitt fan, but I think they're right to be focusing on Tomic at the moment. It's uncertain if Hewitt can win matches on the big stage again, and here you have a kid who was hyped up for years and is now climbing the rankings fast. It's totally logical to give him the spotlight, even though it could put a fair bit of pressure on his shoulders.

Yes, I also say this because of that. This present era that many people here like to call weak, actually it's one of the stronguest (if not the stronguest) of history. Tomic won't have Fedal like Nole. And I cannot see any promising player with Tomic potential. Of course I'm not saying Tomic will be better than Nole. Just that he will win more...

petar_pan
01-12-2012, 12:40 AM
Djokovic with end up with 10, this guy will be happy if he wins 1 or 2. Let's say he will win 4-5 and that is no way near to Nole.
