    He's still very young and the talent base is there, he can grow into becoming a great champion. Of course, he may not too. But I see the potential there for him to be something special. IMHO

    For what it is worth : pretty well every coach that either had Bernard in squad or individual work has attested to his high skill level.

    Talent will only get you say far, look at how hard Djokovic, Murray, Federer & even Nadal have worked. I say even Nadal because he had an amazing transition from juniors to ATP top 20.

    We can argue what making it means but Tomic is around there, whether he breaks through top 20 or even top 10 will be up to him.
    Staying there is even harder.

    So is Bernie accountable for the actions of his dad?

    No, he's not and I do hope Tomic escapes whatever is going on in that relationship. If the incident played as has been reported, his father will probably be banned, as others before him.

    W.P good....Bernard needs a new coach, a new attitude...this guy thinks he's rebellious Agassi though without the slams or a top ten placing before 20....someone will straighten him out...like a Brad Gilbert

    it has the potential to be the best thing that ever happened for Tomic.

    and the worst..

    it's a miracle he even won 5 games against Stepanek in the circumstances, though

    Tomic is just another good player without a head on his shoulders. He'll go the way of Monfils soon enough. There have been lots of guys come and go who think and act exactly like he is.

    "... best ever to play the game." Jeez.

    There's only one guy without a major who is allowed to even utter that sentence. Marcelo Rios. For those of us who watched him... we know that he's probably the only guy who could have potentially lived up to that statement.

    Wow. o.0

    That sounds pretty bad. In New Zealand we get a few articles for each grand slam and sizeable articles on the two tournaments.
