I wonder what MTF thinks about chances of Tomic to go through the 1st round of Monte Carlo? Vote and discuss.

I don't think he could have drawn anyone easier in MC since Becker is pretty useless on clay, but I still expect Becker to go through. He also couldn't have an easier 1st round draw. :lol:

tennis wins when these two clay giants face each other in the first round of a clay masters.

the last time becker has won an ATP clay match was in april 2007.

Tomic is a big question mark, Becker's first match on clay in 3 years. Tough call.

tomic should win but will choke it out. i wish tomic the best because he makes it past the first, then he will get more points and more attention. maybe keep getting WC's to these events

Becker easily in 2, I think.

For me Tomić has nothing to offer, his tennis is boring.
Another big guy, which stands on baseline and waits for opponents error.
Crazy tendency.

Too close to call. Tomic has been showing signs of maturity recently, but Becker has the experience.

it is a 50/50 chance, tomic is bad on clay and becker is bad on clay. I think tomic, if he plays aggresive, he will win.

Seriously if Becker doesn't win this he will never win another clay court match in his life. Tomic has lost to Lorenzi and Aldi in the last 2 weeks and his game at the moment is not at all suited to the dirt. Hitting flat low slow shots while your movement and endurance is not up to scratch is suicide on clay. I expect Bernie to start off well in set 1 and then fade away as the match wears on so I'll go go Becker in 2, something like 6-4 6-3.

I expected the same thing and we were both right. Tomic was up a break in the first but didn't do much after being 4-2 up. I actually correctly predicted a 6-4 6-2 scoreline but didn't post it here because I was going for Tomic and think it's bad luck:o.

It's sadly becoming a trend in his matches but he'll figure it out soon. I still think he should have played the US challengers just to get some wins on the board outside OZ and build up the confidence. There would have been time for clay later in the season.
