- Australian falls to Taylor Fritz in just 82 minutes
- Nonchalant and impatient display prompts questions
Bernard Tomic has denied not giving it his all despite lasting just 82 minutes against Taylor Fritz in another forgettable French Open for the Australian. The big-serving American made the most of a disinterested Tomic to run away with a 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 first round victory, the 21-year-old’s most dominant in a grand slam.
World No 84 Tomic raced through his service games at almost comical speed as his main draw record on the French clay worsened to 3-10. He managed to combine nonchalance and impatience in a first set that lasted just 23 minutes.
