Tomic into Shanghai second round
Wimbledon quarter-finalist Bernard Tomic is into the second round of the ATP Shanghai Masters.
Tomic beat South African Kevin Anderson 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 in a match dominated by serve, the Australian forcing the only break of the contest in the decider.
“I’m happy I won against a player like Kevin because he can beat so many world class players on his day,” said Tomic, who achieved a career-high ranking of 49 on Monday.
“I was happy to break him in that third and I think that’s what won the match.”
