Bernard Tomic's run at his home Slam is over.
The Aussie prodigy, who stunned Italian Potito Starace in the first round, struggled with his game and was shown the second round door by Luxembourg's Gilles Muller 6-3, 1-6, 4-6 2-6. He hit 7 double faults, hit 39 errors and only converted 1 of 6 break point chances. But, it was a great showing for the 16-year old in any case.
What was NOT a good showing were his spindly arms in this sleeveless Nike shirt. Please let Bernie's image in this gear make the case that these shirts, by any brand, must be banned - permanently.
Now I know the Rafanatics will not be pleased with this statement but if Rafa gets to wear them then EVERYONE will be given the opportunity to wear them. And we don't want EVERYONE to wear them do we? (Please study Bernie's pics above + below intently.)
It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.
