Trick-shot Tomic bamboozles Kyrgios with weird match point serve

While Australian cricket has suffered its share of embarrassment over the past 12 months, that's just a small slice of what tennis has endured over recent years through the dubious exploits of Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios. After the match he was optimistic of a bigger and better year around.

"If I was one of the top seeds, I'd be a bit anxious about him next week".

Tomic, on match point, prepared to unleash a serve in the standard overhead manner, only to completely deceive his opponent by cheekily flicked the ball between his legs, simultaneously distracting Kyrgios by rapidly bouncing another ball.

"I've been doing all the right things for next week, ticked all the boxes, got the body right".

But the pair faced off in a low-key matchup that served as a useful warm-up for their respective campaigns at the upcoming Australian Open in Melbourne.

It was a fitting ending however for a rather tiresome contest, with Kyrgios struggling from the outset as Tomic lulled his rival into his game plan.

Addressing the upcoming open, Kyrgios is keen to enforce his will on the matches and play the way he wants to play.

Chastened somewhat, Tomic began to rebuild his game last season, winning his first title since 2015 at Chengdu last September and he appears to be carrying that momentum forward.

He said: "I've made third or fourth round many times and lost to the great players of the world so my target is to make another quarter or maybe a semi if I can". I need to be healthy to have a good year.

"Definitely I struggled with a lot of things previous year, my body was one and I was going through some tough times", Kyrgios said.
