Bernard Tomic is only 24 yet he’s already starting to feel like an old man. The controversial Aussie fell on Friday at his home Slam of the Australian Open to Dan Evans 75, 76, 76 in the third round. It was Tomic’s first time not reaching the fourth round since 2014.
But Tomic is confident he’ll have more chances, maybe many more!
“It’s my ninth Australian Open,” Tomic said. “I’m 24, which is tough to think. I feel like I’m 34. It’s amazing, you know. I actually feel like I’m 34, but I’m 24. Nine Australian Opens. I can’t believe it, as well. It’s been a long nine years already. Another 10 to go. Jesus.”
Tomic has Davis Cup next then he hopes to get back on track and get his ranking going up again after missing time to injury last season.
“I’ve just got to play well in the Masters Series this year,” he said. “That will be my focus this year, Indian Wells, Miami. I played well there before. Made quarters at Indian Wells. I’ll look to play well in those Masters Series, get myself ready.
“Until then I have February with a few tournaments in the States and Mexico. I’ll try as much as I can to be ready for those.”
Tomic’s exit mark the end of the Australian men at the event. Tomorrow, the last player left in singles, Daria Gavrilova, takes the court in the evening.
