Tomic to tackle Valencia this week
Australia’s Bernard Tomic will line up this week among a stacked draw at the ATP 500 event in Valencia, Spain.
The tournament, played on indoor hardcourts, features eight of the world’s top 20.
Tomic will take on Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny in his opening match, the veteran who recently reached the quarterfinals at the US Open.
The winner faces a likely second round battle against second seed Tommy Haas, who won the ATP title in Vienna on Sunday.
The Aussie, who turns 21 today, is looking to snap a three-match losing streak.
