Bernie bundled out of Bangkok event

Bernard Tomic was bundled out of the Thailand Open on Friday, after Frenchman Richard Gasquet secured a straight-sets quarterfinal win.

Gasquet made it to his third semifinal this year in overcoming the eighth-seeded Australian 7-6(5) 6-4.

Gasquet scored the one break from just two chances, and saved all three break points he faced.

Beating Grigor Dimitrov from 7-5 5-2 down the day before gave Gasquet confidence against Tomic.

“Yesterday I was lucky to win, today I played better,” Gasquet said.

“It was a tight race in the first set. I did it. I felt more confident. That’s what made the difference.”

Despite the loss, the week in Bangkok was a productive one for Tomic, marking his first appearance in an ATP quarterfinal since Munich in May.

The Australian next heads to Tokyo for the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships.
