Bernard Tomic coupled Samantha Stosur as a first-round target at the Olympic tennis event, beaten by Japanese 15th rank Kei Nishikori in a rain-hit game which is decided by tie-breakers. On Sunday Kei Nishikori won 7-6, (7-4), 7-6, (7-4) but Bernard Tomic was not too miserable with his performance in a game that first delayed by 3 hours by rain after then interrupted after the first set. Tomic said that, he thought he played quite good. He didn't take his break point chances.
He had 4 set points in the first as well as it would have been an unusual story if he had won that. He conceded that, he played better than his today. Lleyton Hewitt will currently try to salvage hopes of Australia in the singles after his initial round game was postponed due to the rain. The damp weather caused issues for even the finest. Novak Djokovic had to come from a set down to beat Fabio Fognini of Italy by 6-7, (9-7) 6-2, 6-2.
