Tomic joins Aussie troupe in round two
Bernard Tomic joined fellow seeds Nick Kyrgios and Sam Stosur in the second round on a bumper day for Australia at Wimbledon.
Bernard Tomic has joined fellow seeded Aussies Nick Kyrgios and Sam Stosur in the second round in a flying start for Australians at Wimbledon.
Tomic rallied for a spirited 6-3 3-6 2-6 6-2 6-3 win over big-hitting German Jan-Lennard Struff, while Stosur outclassed Montenegro’s Danka Kovinic 6-4 6-4 after Kyrgios blasted past Diego Schwartzman 6-0 6-2 7-6(6) earlier on Monday.
Fellow Aussies Luke Saville and John-Patrick Smith – both qualifiers into the main draw – were not so lucky.
Saville drew 21st seed Richard Gasquet and fell 6-3 6-2 6-2, while Smith let a two-sets-to-love slip against another qualifier Kenny de Schepper, ultimately going down 4-6 4-6 7-6(4) 6-4 6-4.
Fellow Aussies Sam Groth, Casey Dellacqua, Jarmila Gajdosova, James Duckworth and Ajla Tomljanovic will take to the courts on Tuesday for Day 2 action.
