Tomic’s ridiculous underarm serve clinches match

Tomic, who has been through numerous same dips and dives in his motivation and form as Kyrgios, was also pleased with how he is progressing.

With two match points to play with, Tomic begun bouncing a ball in preparation to serve when he casually flicked another ball between his legs which had enough power to go over the net and into Kyrgios' service box.

Tomic, who is now ranked 85 in the world, was the better player throughout the match.

"Bernie Tomic was nearly insulting [Kyrgios]".

On the women's side, Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., is scheduled to play wild card Shuai Peng of China.

Bernard Tomic was mighty impressive against Nick Kyrgios.

So when the two countrymen met for the first time ever on court at this week's Kooyong Classic, it was naturally expected that there would be some form of drama.

All three roles quickly fell apart as Kelly struggled with attracting viewers and became embroiled in a number of controversies. Kelly's exit from NBC was greeted on social media with a mix of celebration and critical barbs directed at the network.

Meanwhile, Tomic, who missed last year's Australian Open, has lofty ambitions for the 2019 competition. I didn't play a lot of tennis a year ago ― which was my own fault.

"I thought not, Bernie Tomic - until yesterday".

If he gets past the 16th seed, he could face 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka, another unsafe floater in this year's devilish men's draw, with world No.4 Alexander Zverev Kyrgios's projected last-16 opponent.

"If I was one of the top seeds, I'd be a bit anxious about him next week. I think the public will give him a second chance".

Kyrgios said there was a simple recipe for success but it still needed to be executed. Touted as a future Grand Slam victor but with a well-documented indifference to tennis, the 23-year-old has blown out to No.51 in the world rankings and looks underdone for the Open.

The match ended on a weird note when Tomic's final serve was an underarm tweener that caught Kyrgios completely off guard.

"But he was incredibly humble and gracious about the other Aussie, so I saw some perspective with Nick that I really haven't seen for a long time, if at all".
