Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

He doesn't have to do any hard yards on tour because he keeps getting wild cards given to him.

Re: Serious Question about Australian Tennis

On the women's side it has taken Sam Stosur until the age of 25-26 to hit her straps. She was at AIS back in 2000. Doesn't this send a message to the management at TA that it can take a player...
