Tomic's won the first set against Nole in the Hopman Cup. I know Nole will probably go on to win in 3 but it's great to see Tomic playing so well to start the year. He had a good win over Haas earlier in the week too.
Edit: Tomic won.
Don't mean to read too much into this loss but it seems to me, Nole wants to stay fit for the AO. Nole is definitely better than this loss to Tomic.
On the other hand, won't be too surprise if Tomic returns to the tour with full force. He had enough time to figure it out just last year and had enough fun as well, so time to get serious.
