I can be the best player ever: Tomic

Bernard Tomic has brushed aside his reported axing from Australia’s Davis Cup side and claimed he can be the best tennis player of all time.

Tomic strongly denies he was dumped by Davis Cup captain Pat Rafter due to behavioral issues, saying he never made himself available.

"I was never meant to play that tie," Tomic said.

"I'm going to use that time to train to prepare for tournaments in America.

"I spoke to Pat and told him I would miss the first one and maybe the second one ... I was never meant to play, I told Pat that."

The world No.52 says he is getting his career back on track.

"I'm young and I'm learning. You get to a point where you need to stop and I think it's a good bit of advice," said Tomic.

"I'm working really hard and trying to push myself to become the best tennis player I can be.

"I've had a slippery slope the last year. It's changing me and I'll prove I'm going to be the best-ever player one day to play this game."

Tennis Australia director of tennis Craig Tiley was quoted on Thursday as saying Rafter won't consider Tomic for the tie against Taiwan while questioning the 20-year-old's commitment to representing his country.

Australia's most recent grand slam winner, Sam Stosur, believes it's time for Tomic to "knuckle down" if he's going to have any chance of fulfilling his enormous potential.

When asked what advice she would give the under-fire Tomic, Stosur said he must ask himself some tough questions if he's going to bounce back from a dismal end to the year when his ranking slid from No.27 in June to No.52.

"What are you doing? Are you wanting to play tennis?," Stosur queried in Sydney.

"If you are, then give it 100 per cent because you only get one crack at it.

"He's going to have to decide what he wants to do and how he's going to approach his career.

"Until that improves in a lot of people's eyes, he's going to have to deal with things like being dropped out of the Davis Cup team."

Stosur added it would be unfortunate to witness Tomic's undoubted talent go to waste.

"That's probably the most disappointing thing for a lot of people on the outside - that he's got this unbelievable tennis ability and he's not really using it at the moment," said the 28-year-old world No.9.

"So I think everyone would like to see him knuckle down and do his best and see where that gets him."

Tomic responded positively to the words of wisdom from the 2011 US Open champion, who is about to head into her 14th year on the WTA tour.

Tomic will get the chance to start proving the doubters wrong when he represents Australia at the Hopman Cup in Perth later this month.

If people call such mug as Olderer as Best, why such a great talent as Tomic can't be consider as the Best?

Stosur giving Tomic career advice :facepalm:

not to be a hater, but Tomic is infinitely more talented than her, even in contrast to the leagues they partake in. Bernard may be being unwise at the moment, but he's 19/20 years old, he's been developing fine and he will certainly have big success in his career as things go on

he's the most promising person in his generation and has loads of talent. if I were him I would just do it how he prefers, he's shown he's got the game, he'll fill the shoes at some point. Stosur of all people though, with her up and down play and flash in the pan moments of success is not really a great person to have lecture however

You can say that again :lol: Maybe his strategy is to wait for another 6 to 10 years for everybody to retire, and then to sweep 4 slams a year between his 31 and 41 :p

Reaching the final of an ATP tournament would be a good start to his quest of becoming the best ever.

Would be kind of nice to see him start putting up results just to troll the pundits.

half? you are being so kind with Tomic :rolleyes:

This generation of players is so annoying, this one specially. He is still young and has time to develop, but please shut the fuck and win a crappy 250 title at least.
