Tomic can bridge the gap

Posted 10-13-2011 at 01:32 PM by Philip Oliver
The gap appears to be extending between the top four and the rest in the men's game, but one man in particular could break that dominance in the next couple of years.

Bernard Tomic has not only shown promise in 2011, but he looks to confirm that he is the real deal when it comes to making a big impact on the ATP Tour.

Just as Australian tennis looked to be on the wane, the 18-year-old has picked it up by the scruff of the neck and dragged it into focus once again. Fans of mobile sports betting will be keeping an eye on him.

Tomic looks to have it all and his game has a mixture of Australian greats of years gone by – a double-handed backhand to compare with Lleyton Hewitt and a fierce serve to match Pat Rafter.

The teenager's movement around the court is also impressive and the results indicate that there is more to come from this Queenslander.

Tomic really came to the attention of tennis fans at this year's Wimbledon, where he reached the quarter-finals before losing in four sets to eventual winner and player of the year Novak Djokovic. Those looking at the tennis betting will have been impressed.

Grass may well be his favoured surface, but this former Australian Open junior champion is equally at home on hard courts. Tomic has recently beaten both Victor Troicki and Stanislas Wawrinka, both of whom are well above him in the rankings, as well as taking a set off Roger Federer in a Davis Cup tie.

The 18-year-old started the year at 208th in the world, and his quick rise to the top 50 (currently 49th) suggests we will be hearing "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie" ringing round major courts over the coming years.
