Bernard Tomic.

It is a good run, and his breakthrough tournament.

But as I did say, his match versus Djokovic will be the yardstick. Malisse is way past his best.

Aggressive, gobby, unpleasant, pokes his nose in during line decisions at matches. Bit of a stereotype of a dreadful tennis father as coach. Usually it's women who suffer that Frown

No wonder he's getting attention driving a very loud, bright orange BMW. And I don't see why he's got this special licence to drive one of these vehicles anyway. He should just use a car that the average person would have.

I agree about the special licence and find it worrying that a 19 year old who still has only a provisional licence is allowed to be at the wheels of such a powerful car at all - especially as the article claims that he's currently under investigation for "a number of alleged traffic breaches" which, if true, suggests a good degree of irresponsibility on his part.  Hardly a role model for other teenager drivers.  Also I don't think this is the first time Tomic has caused controversy by his attitude.

From what I remember his play is up and down. Some matches he is very good and others he is out very quick I think he needs to be more consistant. Really do not know much about him.

Looks like Tomic could be like Andy used to be (I think he is listening these days) - determined to do things his own way!  From what I've been reading - and the Aussie press are understandably all over him - he seems to have a pretty high opinion of himself and certainly doesn't seem to be lacking in confidence.  It'll be interesting to see just how far he does get in 2012.  First tournament is Brisbane.  Should be interesting if he comes up against Andy.

Irritatingly a video, which we can't get, appears a few seconds after the link is opened, but the text still appears below it.

From Fox Sports -

Rising Australian tennis star Bernard Tomic faces jail time and a $20,000 fine over his run-in with police last week.

He was charged with evading police after he allegedly refused to stop and later barricaded himself in his parents' Gold Coast, Queensland, home on Jan. 26.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a $20,000 fine but his high-profile criminal lawyer Chris Nyst called the charges "little more than a storm in a tea cup."

Tomic was pulled over by police and fined twice in less than two hours before the standoff, and on Tuesday police served the 19-year-old with a notice to appear on two more driving-related charges.

He is due to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on February 14 to face the charges.

Australian drivers with a provisional license are not allowed to drive high-powered cars, but Tomic has an exemption to drive his orange V8 BMW M3 to and from training.

Nyst said that was where the issue became confusing, but he believes Tomic did nothing wrong.

Nyst has appealed to Queensland police commissioner Bob Atkinson to review the situation and said he doubted the matter would go to court, although police insisted they had "more than enough evidence" against the world No. 34.
