Woodbridge observed then, as have many others since, that a proper professional coach wouldn't put up with that dross for ten minutes but tell him he had to redline his game if he wanted to play with the big boys.
Isn't it a bit late for Tomic to totally overhaul his game? He's 20 years old.
"I rest my case. Federer needs to win 28 slams, twice more than Nadal to be in the same conversation with Sampras." A famous quote from helloworld.
