Bernard Tomic vs. Lleyton Hewitt?
No secret both Tomic & Hewitt camps dont like eachother however Hewitt is clearly past his best however when he goes down he goes down fighting...
My question is have Tennis Australia given Bernard Tomic the right preparation for Australian Open?
Week 1 - Hewitt competed in Hopman Cup representing Australia in his pool drawing & loosing to Fernando Verdasco & Gasquet while Tomic competed in Brisbane making SF loising to Murray... Should Tomic has competed in Hopman Cup insted? he would of faced Verdasco his Aus Open 1st round opponent.... or better playing against World #4 Murray in Brisbane?
Week 2 - Bernard Tomic competed in Kooyong which gaurantees all participants 3-tough matches before Aus Open while Hewitt competed in Sydney loosing to 5th seed Viktor Troicki... Should Tennis Australia take credit in this regards?... Three 3-set watches with wins against Berdych, Monfils & Mardy Fish
Q1: Should Hewitt have competed in Kooyong, tournament he won last year & Brisbane insted of Hopman Cup as more experienced than Tomic could have taken out Murray
Q2: Should Tennis Australia have put Tomic in Hopman Cup & Sydney & replaced Hewitt in Brisbane & Kooyong?... are both players prepared for Aus Open?
