Yeah, I thought he was on the way out when he was trailing by a set and 1-2 (I think it was), down 15-30 on his own serve. But I'm so glad he pulled through! Looking forward to hearing more about him and seeing more of him in the future.
it will interesting to see how Tennis Australia handles Tomic now. there will be the temptation to give him the auto wildcards to Roland Garros and the US Open now. I hope they hold off for a year in a way. he's obviously a big talent and he's already 190cm at 15 so he should develop physically well enough to make the transition to professional tennis.
in any event this result and Jess Moore making the girls final and winning a round in the main draw certainly gives us a lot more hope than only a year ago.
