Mayer is also an old guy who isn't obviously a top player.
Matosevic is...?? Bands...??
and are you saying not getting broken by these guys is something worth talking about here when he's facing the Great Federer??
70 straight holds isn't impressive when he was playing just easy low-ranked players, so it should definitely not be discussed when we're arguing whether he'll beat federer or not. Just pointless facts..
Too late, its already been discussed. You lost. And the fact is, Tomic has to do almost everything right to beat Federer. Serve poorly and he has almost no chance. And guess what? Tomic is serving extremely well, 26 aces included. So that is one box ticked. Everything is relevant on the checklist.
