Always great to see Tomic lose. Losing to Stepanek nowadays isn't something any "future great" should be doing but here we are :lol:

tbf Stepanek is still pretty good these days, Tomic is rather inconsistent and this court doesn't suit him. Despite the clowning in the 2nd set this was expected IMO.

People should stop treating Tomic like he's the next Federer. At best he'll have a Hewitt-esque career.

Who will win slams in five years so if even Tomic is not the next big thing?
Old man Gasquet? I don't think so.

good win for Sexy Lips. I'm giving up on all youngsters. I guess Djokovic, Roger and Nadal will keep winning in next 100 years :-)

Stepanek is 14/15 years older than Tomic.:lol:

Tomic.:help:

Players born from 91-93 are rubbish.

Tomic seemed like a guy with amazing mentality three years ago. Now it's clear he doesn't deal so well with tight situations against experienced players, his defeats to Dodig, Muller and Montanes speak for themselves, and today wasted a triple set point :facepalm:

I think the fact that it's not a Slam helps too though.

The **** should figure out how to grind out wins against the veterans at minor events. As good as he is at Slams, he can't beat the really good players, so needs as much points as possible to prevent that.

Guys, watch Raonic, that guy is the real deal. Tomic is awful on clay.

Wasn't Tomic supposes to be the next "great thing"?

There is just a great thing I see, and that is a great shit whose name is Bernard.

Tomic is ranked 31. The second highest ranked 19 year old sits at 176.

it's clay. Tomic sucks on it. I'm sure he can't wait for grass season to come along.

Stepanek doesn't exactly exemplify class himself, but oh well, nice game.
Always good when Tomic loses

I wish Stepanek would just step aside and give the up and coming players a chance. Always a bad result for tennis when Bernard loses.

Didn't say anything about the next big thing. But Tomic's ranking speaks for itself. Your troll is pointless.

I wouldn't worry about it at all. I know Tomic isn't.
