Guy just beat Berdych and Monfils and will surely beat Fish too. Seems like only the top 4 can handle his game. There's nothing weird about putting him onto official page, aussies only decent player.

Two of those wins were at the hit for Kooyong event but I guess considering he is our leading male player perhaps the decision could be justified.

That is just exbition. True he can beat almost everbody but he can also loose by almost everybody.

:haha: He beat Berdy and Monfils at an Australian exo. Where they were paid to lose.
I mean, even I don't think Murray is so good to have destroyed him last week so handily when he's beating other top 10 players left and right.

It changes every time you refresh it. Nole's with Serena while Roger is with Clijsters. I've seen Stosur, Nadal, Li Na, Baghdatis, and Hewitt. Tomic is with Sharapova (how appropriate).

I'm not sure about the OP, but http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/index.html has Djokovic on one side and Stosur on the other, the most recent Grand Slam Champions.

Absolutely, good for Tennis if the local people get excited in the event, for that they need a local hero. smart move.

Well Tomic is Aussie's #1 player, it's reasonable, no?

It is.

However putting the likes of him and Baghdatis without Murray is something else.

It would be fun if Tomic would get drawn vs a Murray or Djokovic in R1.Considering the luck Hewitt had as an unseeded player it wouldn`t surprise me at all if Tomic would play against a top player in R1.This way the organisers will be guaranteed a good night session match in the opening round.

Of course they do. After all, people won't have a chance to see him anywhere else once first round is finished.

If they wanted to psyche Murray out they'd have put him all over the cover. Whoever is responsible for that cover is obviously a secret Murray fangirl.
