    But still went down 6-0, 6-2 to Juan Monaco. He has a champions mentality.

    In the latter part of the 20th century, a great effort was made by various physicists to discover more subatomic particles. In the early 21st century, TennisAustralia succeeded in finding such a particle and placing much faith in his value in the future. Perhaps it is time to revaluate the Down Under experiment in Project Quark. He has less talent on a tennis court than in the faster traffic lanes on various Aussie thoroughfares.

    But his atomic number is higher than most other specimens in the "particle zoo", right?

    On a surface which requires fight, stamina and the ability to dig it out tomic will always struggle.

    Remind me, at what age did Nadal and Borg win their first RG titles?

    Just because Tomic won't win 6-7 FO's doesn't mean he's at lock at sucking on clay for the rest of his career:roll:

    Sure, why not? Regardless of age, his game seems better suited to faster surfaces.

    Tomic is exhibit A on why more prize money for early round losers is not a good idea. I really hope the kid gets it together. I'd like to see more of him if he puts in his best effort. Played great and was fun to watch in Melbourne.

    It's an attitude problem, rather than a skills one. When he can't be bothered to work he stinks.
