Bernard was beaten by a determined Todd Reid in an epic three set encounter at the Perth International today.

Reid came back from a set and 3-0 down to defeat Tomic 6-7(5) 6-3 6-4.

A frustrated Reid looked down and out in the second set before commencing a run of six games to take the match to three.

Tomic took the opening game of the third set before the more experienced Reid won the next five games and looked set for victory.

However, Tomic fought back to save two match points stretching Reid for another three games before he could serve out the match.
