Bernard Tomic secured a controversial-yet-comical victory in an exhibition match against compatriot Nick Kyrgios at the Kooyong Classic on Wednesday when the Australian hit an ace on match point with an underarm serve from behind his legs.
With the encounter played in good spirits, Tomic claimed match point when he dished up a freaky trick serve.
Tomic ended his victory with a flourish, sending over a sneaky serve on match point by hitting the ball between his legs for a victor ― a move which totally caught Kyrgios off guard.
"I don't think there has ever been a player like BT", Kyrgios said following the match.
Actor Craig McLachlan reportedly charged with sex offences
Victorian Police confirmed today that he was charged on summons to appear at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on February 8. He also released the song Mona (I Need You Baby) and toured the United Kingdom and Europe with his band Check 1-2.
"He won a title past year and it looks like he is carrying a bit of momentum, which is good to see".
Tomic's first set was nearly flawless, while Kyrgios, who made a second round exit at Brisbane last week, looked a little underdone. He added: "I know this Australian Open is going to be big as well. and I can do a lot better than I've done in the past".
Tomic will return to the main draw in Melbourne after falling the qualifying rounds previous year. He broke the world No. 51 Kyrgios in the fourth game of the first set to win it 6-3. "You never want to see a talent like that go down and keep being down".
Kyrgios said he was happy to see Tomic back in form after missing the 2018 Open with his ranking plummeting to as low as 243 through the year.
Kyrgios, who was knocked out in the second round at Brisbane last week, was beaten 6-3, 6-4 by friend and fellow comeback candidate Bernard Tomic in an all-Australian battle.
The Australian Open will begin on January 14. "My attitude to tennis is the same whether I won or lose", he said. "I have to raise my game and play better at the end of the day".
