Melbourne, Jan. 10 (ANI): Swiss Master Roger Federer, who has now heard Bernard Tomic speaking about his top ten goals for quite some time, will believe the latter making it to the A-listers once he sees it.
The world number three insisted that Tomic has been good in the recent past but top 10 was another story, news.com.au reported.
The top-seed at the Brisbane International offered the Australian a reality check after his strong showing at the tournament.
The 17-time Grand Slam champion said that before speaking so highly, it was good to take it to the next level and then all the people would be able to see that.
Tomic suffered a heart wrenching defeat at the hands of Milos Raonic in the semi-finals of the Brisbane event on Saturday.
Defeating Tomic 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-5), Raonic will now meet Federer in a rematch of last year’s decider on Sunday night at Pat Rafter Arena.
According to Federer, Tomic, who notched his seventh career win over a top 10 player by beating Japanese star Kei Nishikori, will take huge positives away from the Brisbane International. (ANI)
