Bernard Tomic Determined to Learn from Mistakes after Losing to Colin Ebelthite in Australian Open Wildcard Playoff

(This entry was originally published in this blog December 2008 and it is based on the information of that time.)

Australia tennis wonder-boy, 16-year-old, Bernard Tomic has recently lost in the first round of the wildcard playoff of Australian Open. However, the youngster is not too much disappointed at the defeat to an eight-year older opponent, Colin Ebelthite. Rather, Tomic wants to learn from the mistake and wants to more on. He even also said that he knew he would go though many such defeats in the years to come, but he thought it would be part of his development. Even Colin Ebelthite was full of praise about Tomic after winning the match 3-6 6-3 7-6 (8-6). He thinks that Tomic has a good brain for tennis and he will be a great player in future.

Herald Sun reported:

“I’ll get a lot more beatings like that in the next few years, that’s for sure. But it’s part of my development,” the 16-year-old Tomic said.

“He has a great tennis brain and has good hands. He’s pretty big for 16 and he hits the ball well, moves well and he’s going to be a great player. There’s not too many weaknesses to his game even now,” Ebelthite said.

Bernard Tomic is now considered to be the best Australian male tennis player after Lleyton Hewitt. He has already won the prestigious Orange Bowl titles in three age-groups: 12s, 14s and 16s. Now, let us see if Tomic can continue his junior level success in the senior level too.
