Do people here remember when you were twenty years old? Also, all these Australian pros such a Stosur, Hewitt, Rafter, talking crap about Tomic in the press is uncalled for.
Tomic should be focusing on his tennis career it is an individual sport and let Hewitt play Davis Cup. This young man has massive potential yes he has some personal problems but who doesn't in life?
The way the Australian media are acting as though Tomic is on dope or doing something extreme when is not.
Yes, we just have to be so very thankful that Tomic was not smoking dope. Never in history has a teenager done that and then gone on to succeed in any way.
