Tomic finds his touch

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

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.
