Re: Sydney F: Tomic's Maiden Title 6-3 6-7(2) 6-3 over Anderson

routine opening set for bernie but he miscalculated and thought anderson would roll-over and play dead. lulled into a false sense of security, he reverted back to his passive, lackadaisical style in the 2nd, but recovered nicely under pressure in the 3rd and showed great hustle and intensity -- it was easily the best i’ve ever seen him move. his conditioning and stamina were impressive as well as there were several long rallies in the decider and he never appeared winded or fatigued. this bodes well for him at the ao, but he needs to play with the same sense of urgency on a more consistent basis and can’t afford to take his foot off the pedal versus elite players.

Congrats to Tomic on taking the title from Jarko [/sarcasm]

The APIA international seeding was like a seeding for a tourrnament of mugs

Hell, even players like Tipsy and Ferrer also won pre-AO tournaments.
Well he said he going to be better than RF, so he should own up to it.

A modest speech.

Hard to believe how he was being treated at the end of last season. Once T-bomb wins AO, I'll create a thread for everyone to make their apologies.

Well he's not here for anyone to really like (outside of Australia that is). he's an obvious sociopath and that's for life ('I'm getting choked up bla bla') he's the villain. But tennis needs these characters. Even his most ardent detractors must admit he's a interesting character for the sport, if not the sporting world.

If playing and winning first tournament in the year is considered "peaking too early", tomic might as well give up on his ambition to be top ten this year.

Anderson could be a much better player if he wasn't so horribly inconsistent at putting away short balls (which he gets by virtue of his huge serve). That fatal flaw was on full show in this match as well.

Tomic's serve has improved massively, he could go on to have a very good year.

Really great time for a trophy for Tomic. (Is there ever a bad time for it...?)

He'll go into the first major of the year full of confidence. He's at an age when you would expect to see a top player accelerating in their development on court. He's young, dumb and full of come.

He should meet Federer in the third round. Federer will be 32 later this year, and he hasn't played any warm-up tournaments. I smell an upset a la Federer-Sampras at Wimbledon back in 2001...

Tennis desperately needs some cocky young upstarts to come along and take on the big guns. Besides his honesty in interviews gives people who don't like him the chance to have a good laugh when he loses.
My problem is that he is disrespectful and arrogant. It's not only that comment but many other things that he has said and done.

I hope he makes the 3rd round so Federer can sweep the floor with him like last year.

Yeah I know. Tomic chooses his finals carefully.
