Reformed Bernard Tomic chuffed by return to Davis Cup

Tomic said he was genuinely pleased to be back on the Davis Cup team. The 20-year-old Queenslander has won eight of his 10 singles rubbers and will be a welcome asset to skipper Pat Rafter in the Asia-Oceania Zone second-round tie with Uzbekistan.

Miami, Florida: Bernard Tomic quickly put aside a 6-3, 6-1 loss on Saturday to second seed Andy Murray at the ATP Miami Masters as the excitement of a Davis Cup return builds for the Australian number one.

Tomic, ranked 45th, was unable to maintain early momentum against Murray in the heat of a steamy Florida afternoon, blaming exposure to too much air-conditioning for a troublesome virus.

"I didn't play very good in the second set," acknowledged Tomic, who is also teaming with Davis Cup teammate Lleyton Hewitt in doubles in Miami. "I didn't feel at 100 per cent, I tried my best but it was not good enough."
