Male Junior Athlete of the Year

Bernard Tomic was named the Male Junior Athlete of the Year at the inaugural Australian Tennis Awards in Melbourne on Friday.

Tomic, who became the youngest man to ever win an Australian Open match in 2009, continued his ascension into the senior ranks on the ATP Tour.

Granted a wildcard into the 2010 tournament, he yet again won his first-round match and pushed 14th seed Marin Cilic over five epic sets before falling just short of what would have been the biggest win of his career to date.

Undeterred, Tomic entered and won the ITF event in Burnie and soon after made his Davis Cup debut against Chinese Taipei, winning both his singles rubbers.

The 18 year old is currently ranked at a career high No.208.
