Bernard Tomic pays tribute to Justine Henin in Melbourne

Only four days after happily admitting to the press that he had used gamesmanship as a main tactic to come back from two sets to love down against Fernando Verdasco, Tomic decided to take things even further while fighting for his life in a fifth set against Dolgopolov.

Bernard Tomic Shoots Down Verdasco’s Chances Ahead Of Clash

It’s easy to hate on Bernard Tomic; He’s young, he’s talented, he carries with him an air of quiet (and sometimes very loud) arrogance, he stupidly drives a car so ridiculously flashy and OTT that the law only permits him to use it to and from practice, and as of today we can see that [...]

Video Vault: No Pressure?

But since the Grand Slam semis and quarters, it’s been nothing but disappointment after disappointment for Cilic fans. This week, seeded a [...]

Vasek Pospisil Proves That Opportunity Is Everything. Bernard Tomic Doesn’t.

A lot has been made of the Montreal Rogers Cup wildcard decisions this week. Much like last year when Ana Ivanovic was shunned in favour of local lowly Canadian players, the Rogers Cup organizers once again decided to hand the vast majority of their wildcards to low-ranked local players. This time, the flavours of the [...]
