Federer vs Tomic: R3 AO13 Preview

Image

Federer plays Tomic today at the Australian Open.  Federer is my pick (as always) as has just too much variety and experience for Tomic to overcome but it will be a tough match nonetheless. Tomic has been playing well so far this year but I don’t think with his current game, he can beat Federer unless Fed plays really, really badly; somehow I don’t see that happening. As I said before, Tomic is neither an aggressive defender & returner like Nadal & Djokovic or a clean, savage belter like Berdych, Tsonga, Soderling & Del Potro (only these guys have defeated Federer in Grand Slams in recent times).

Read this Awesome line in a Tennis post which pretty much sums up my thoughts: “Tomic has bamboozled seeds here before, but beating Federer with finesse is like trying to take down Shakespeare in Scrabble”. Go Federer!  🙂
