The Australian media are just desperate for any given talent that comes by that happens to be Australian. They want to feed it into people's brains that Tomic is the next big thing, vulnerable people, people who don't know much about tennis and only watch it once or twice a year. They are successful a lot of the time as these people are also gullible and will believe anything the media throws at them.
"Leavin' on a southern train only yesterday, you lied. Promises of what I seemed to be, only watched the time go by."
