Tomic finds his touch
BERNARD Tomic is one win away from reaching a claycourt tour final for the first time.
Tomic’s 6-3 6-4 victory over Italian qualifier Gianluca Mager has thrust the 25-year-old into the semi-finals of the Open du Pays d’Aix Challenger event in Provence.
The $200,000 tournament is providing Tomic with priceless match practice and rankings points as he battles to revive his once flourishing career.
He could face fellow Queenslander John Millman in the final if he beats Swede Elias Ymer next up. Top-seeded Millman routed German Oscar Otte 6-0 6-0 in his quarter-final and plays Argentine Guido Andreozzi for a place in the title match.
