Bernard Tomic’s defense of his Burnie Challenger title continued with a solid win over Brisbane International quarterfinalist Matt Ebden.

Despite rain again affecting play, the skies cleared to allow most matches to go ahead – good news for Tomic who held off Ebden in straight sets, 6-3 7-5. The win sets up an intriguing quarterfinal match with fellow Gold Coaster Ben Mitchell.

The 18-year-old Mitchell defeated Canada’s Erik Chvojka 3-6 6-1 6-4 to set up the marquee clash that will take centre stage at 6:30 pm on Thursday evening.
