    Movement is all that matters in the modern game.

    Tomic is a good young player, I just hope he has enough sense to tell dad to take a hike before it seriously takes a toll on his career. Tennis is tough enough mentally without having a psycho parent shouting in your ear!

    Doubtful, he wouldn't be playing where he is if that were true. Does he have some issues, sure, but he's an immature kid. We like to think that all these alpha players are such gentleman, when they aren't. They have to have an ego that allows them to believe they can win. They live in a bubble, and we've been accustomed to the calm of Nadal-Fed. Well, they aren't the only players and each player has their style.

    Maybe Gulbis is just giving a heads up to what we should expect from the next batch, even if he's not one of the top guys.
