Tomic is still an ar$ehole.  So he beat another ar$ehole.  So what?

Tomic has done this before, he starts the year well and drops off just as quickly.

He has had a decent run at the Aussie Open before, and once had a great run at Wimbledon, but he fails between the ears. Hopefully he has matured a little and gets his head right, as it is obvious he is super talented.

Novak, whilst I have no doubts wanted to win, certainly did not bust a gut, and had plenty in the tank, I don't think he or his camp are too worried about that result.

I do however think that the result flattered Tomic slightly, and only increases the pressure on him, due to expectations which will now be placed upon him by the Aussie public.

Actually, I think he has trained the Australian public to have very low expectations, especially in regard to his behaviour.
A completely self obsessed, rude, arrogant prat.
He might be able to play tennis, but he is an embarrassment to Australian sport.
We don't need his type and the sooner he disappears from the scene the better, I say!

I am happy to watch him grow up, mature and flourish in front of us. I have not doubt he will reach the top and in five years will not remember his churlishness.

To me Tomic is merely the Croatian version of Phillipoussas. Except more obnoxious.

Or Lleyton in his insufferable enfant terrible days. Except Hewitt at least achieved something.

It's a waste of effort contemplating him.

There are far more deserving champions worth noting.

Rosewall failed to win Wimbledon, Raelene failed to win Olympic gold, as well as Kowalski when Kieren freaked a metric mile.

But to my knowledge that trio always conducted themselves admirably, and in comparison Tomic is just a future candidate for Dancing with the Stars.

They might have to lower their standards a bit further yet.

I don't care what knockers say I was pleased to see Bernie hitting the shots he did last night and Novac has been playing in tournaments not opens but enough to play up to his No1 ranking and I didn't expect Bernie to win over him,the pressure and expectations Australia puts on these young players it is no wonder they fold just like Pat Cash did after the expectations put on him to win every time,I see the same thing happening to the young guys who are playing well at the moment and the young Ash Barty will be getting pressure also if Sam Stoser keeps her inconsistancy up.

The kid can play. No risk, BUT, a little bit of humility would go a long way.

For starters, it's Stosur.

The one vowel out of 6 (5?) open to misinterpretation and you manage it.

Who's managed to win a major against Serena on her home turf. Hardly an everyday occurrence.

Not sure when she was last outranked in Australia.

And her ankles haven't actually been working recently.

And the media haven't been able to find one printable off-field indiscretion.

To me she has reached the pinnacle once, and seems to be putting in.

Same can hardly be said of the wannabes who grace the ever diminishing standards of our media .

We can thank McEnroe and his rantings for the way Tomic has behaved on & off the court---see---this is his generation---and if Macca can do it so can he....

Fckwits.....both of them......

Let the talent flow...and stop the #$%$##

To be fair Chuggers i doubt whether Tomic has ever seen McEnroe play let alone been influenced by him.

McEnroe had the talent to back up his mouth. (legend)

I can't remember any of those that followed in his mouth's foot steps being in the same class.

More good tennis from Bernie with an easy win over Aussie No1,imo Bernie was only travelling at about 70% he wasn't opening his shoulders at any stage,common you knockers give credit where it is due,his control has been a real highlight with his four wins this year.  emthup

Takes more than 4 wins to make up for being a twat.

Nice to see that your only criteria of a person is whether they win or not. 
And I think you'll find it's "come on" not "common".  Just trying to help.

Not sure if he has the talent, kool but the kid needs to be cut some slack.
From the interviews i've seen recently it appears he's getting his act together. Lets hope so and he hasn't covered himself in glory, off the court

Wily...I'm sure he probably has the talent to be the best player we have seen here for years,if he is given the help that Pat Rafter has always been given and he still has Tony Roche holding his hand Bernie will be better than him,the police just need to give the kid a break we only have media talk about what he has done in his car and everyone knows media will lie to sell papers/magazines,I don't think his Dad helps totally as he wasn't with him at Perth and that seemed to be his turnaround and probably getting a kick from the davis cup selectors maybe a good thing for him.

I'm with you and have Firezuki on ignore as he is a wasted space.

I am still curious as to who is coaching him in the art of interviews. The first thing i would be telling him is to stop talking himself up after one or two wins.
All I have heard after his hit and giggle wins this year is 'top ten', 'no. 1' and 'beat anyone' lines. We all know you have to be confident in your own abilities to be successful but he is very hard to warm to at present.
