Young Tomic is thru to the quarters….Djokovic next?

Picture

Australian teenage sensation Bernard Tomic sprinted through to the quarter-finals of Wimbledon with a crushing win over Xavier Malisse on Court 18. The 18-year-old qualifier from the Gold Coast, who knocked out fifth seed Robin Soderling in straight sets on Saturday, added another chapter to his fairytale story as he dispatched his more fancied opponent 6-1 7-5 6-4 in just an hour and 21 minutes. The win extends his best run at a grand slam event to give him a last-eight berth, although his quarter-final opponent, one of Michael Llodra or Novak Djokovic, is sure to test him more than out-of-sorts Belgian Malisse, who paid the price for an ill-disciplined start. Malisse was broken in just the second game of the opening set, Tomic hitting a forehand winner, and, when he lost his serve again in the fourth, he set about exchanging words with the umpire.

He was unhappy with the stringing on his rackets, even going as far as suggesting they had been strung by an Australian, while he also took issue with a number of line calls made on both his and Tomic’s serve.
