For me, it's still early to form an opinion on Tomic.

Tomic definitely has Top10 talent, could he crack the top5? That takes a lot of dedication, commitment and love for the game. Preparation, watching tape, hours in the gym, willing to change, etc., etc.,

To me, he's still so young. Loves the money and the fame but not the game... yet. But he will, eventually, if he wants to get where he can and should.
Agreed. Still early. But ceiling is definitely very high if he puts the work in. He's got the touch shots and craftiness down, solid consistent serve, and now we know he can actually HIT. ... First thing's first: he's gotta gain a bit of weight, put some muscles on those bones. He was cooked both physically and mentally in the third set.
