The Aussie have a great future in tennis, but it’s going to be a controversial. Nick Kyrgios is a PR nightmare and Bernard Tomic isn’t much better. The lax-looking Tomic advanced yesterday over John Millman, and then afterward took some shots at Roger Federer.
Earlier in the month, Federer commented that Tomic still has a long way from the Top 10.
Tomic then said Saturday that basically Federer is a long way from Novak Djokovic.
“He has his predictions,” Tomic said. “I think he’s also far away from Djokovic as well if he wants to say that. If he believes I’m very far away from the top 10, I also believe my prediction that he’s nowhere near Novak’s tennis right now.”
Fun, right? Bernard does have a point, literally. Roger is over 8,500 points from Djokovic in the rankings while Tomic is 1,000 from the Top 10. More likely to happen, Federer catching Djokovic or Tomic reaching the Top 10? I’ll go Tomic.
Later today Federer faces David Goffin. Roger’s been good enough so far and Goffin just doesn’t have the weapons I don’t think.
Tomorrow Tomic will have his hands full with Andy Murray.
“He’s cool. We’re always nice to each other,” Tomic said of Murray. “I haven’t spent too much time with him. But apart from when we see each other on tour, he’s super nice to me. I have so much respect for his game, what he’s achieved in his career. It’s going to be an amazing match for me on Monday. I’m going to take it to him, play the tennis I’ve been playing.”
Should Murray father-in-law Nigel Sears check out ok, I don’t see how Tomic wins that.
“I just feel so confident on court. Anyone can beat anyone now. Especially with the tennis I’m playing, I’ll go out there believing I can win and focus on my service games. I know I’ll get some chances on his.”
