Benard Tomic is looking at 2016 as a breakthrough year. After a solid 2015, Tomic is now targetting a spot in the Top 10 and start beating big names.
“Very happy, very pleased,” said Tomic said of 2015. “Felt like I could have done a little bit better, maybe reached the top 12, 13, but can’t regret anything, played a very good year and now it’s obviously there the next few months where I’ve got the possibility to crack the top 10. But it’s a long way away, I have to stay focused and I have to play good tennis.
“The players in tennis now – the top four, top eight – are very strong players and it’s about beating them consistently each week, making deep runs into tournaments and beating these top players,” Tomic said.
“You have to earn it. The next few months we shall see and I’ll try my best.”
The 23-year-old Tomic finished last year at No. 18, and with Richard Gasquet already out of the Australian Open, the Australian is hopeful of a Top 16 seed in Melbourne.
“That’s a huge thing,” Tomic said of the seedings which will be released next Monday. “I have to do well this week, win some matches … more confidence into the Australian Open would be a big thing for me.”
Tomic opens in Brisbane against Nicholas Mahut.
