Former world number 17 Bernard Tomic paid tribute to Roger Federer by describing the Swiss as one of the greatest in tennis history. Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, retired from tennis after the Laver Cup. Tomic, 29, has faced Federer four times.
In those four meetings, Tomic didn’t get a single palm over Federer. Tomic won only one set in those four matches, as he took a set from Federer when they played in the Davis Cup in 2011.” One of the most stylish players in history.
An honor to play with you. Nothing but love,” Tomic wrote on his Instagram Story. Tomic, who in his day was a top- 20 player, is now ranked 659th in the world. But in recent weeks Tomic has won back-to-back ITF titles in Cancun.
” Thanks again for the support. F— the haters, I am going to prove them wrong,” Tomic wrote on his Instagram Story after winning back-to-back titles in Cancun. The last many times haven’t been easy for Tomic, who admitted there were miscalculations on his part.
But he’s now completely committed to tennis and wants to achieve success before he retires.” I have had a lot of hate in my life. But I can not give up. Do you suppose I do not see the hate commentary? It hurts me,” Tomic said in December.
” In history, I used to let it get to me and reply out of asininity.”
