Australian teenage tennis star Bernard Tomic has vowed to follow Roger Federer's advice this time and work harder on his tennis over the rest of the 2013 season.
The 20-year-old from the Gold Coast lost to Federer in straight sets last night, 6-4 7-6 (7-5) 6-1, in their third round match on Rod Laver Arena.
But he was a vastly improved player since the pair also faced off in the last Australian Open when they clashed in the fourth round, news.com.au reports.
Tomic said the advice Federer gave him at the net 12 months ago, were spoken again last night. (ANI)
