Not sure I've ever seen Tomic play. Isn't he regarded as something of a brat? Or is that unfair in the way that the image of Andy is unfair? Given this is the first time Andy has played him I fear it might be roller coaster time again but hope Andy gets the measure of him quickly.
Sooooooooooooo sad to hear that mr perfect unable to play because of a sore back. But you can be sure that his sore back is nothing like the injuries that have caused other players to pull out of tournaments so I think you are all being most unfair here and on other thread [please note the tongue firmly in cheek].
I think we know you well enough Ruthie
Rogers went to great pains (excuse the pun) to repeatly tell the media and fans its only the 2nd time in his career he has had to withdraw.
Must say Fed. perhaps has a optimal build that can take the strain, and a style of play that has not worn out his joints and muscles. Others struggle more.
