Tennis: 21-year-old Bernard Tomic wants to keep the momentum going after the win in Claro Open Colombia in Bogota. The win has helped him get back in top 100. Tomic showed a lot of nerves as both of his semifinal match against Estrella Burgos and final match against Ivo Karlovic were decided by 3rd set tie-breaks. This win helped Tomic jump 54 places in the ATP Rankings as he reached World No.70 spot from World No.124.

This is his highest ranking in 6 months. The Australian was very happy as he was given wildcard. He said, "I'm very happy. I was preparing as much as I could to do well at this tournament. I'm very happy to have got a wild card from the tournament director''.

He saw a new low when his ranking went below 100 before this week and IMG parted ways with him. "I came here a week before," said Tomic.

''The first two days... I had no timing no rhythm. I kept doing training, fitness and started to play better.'' The 21-year-old will need a wild card to get into the U.S. Open, but has a better chance of receiving one from Tennis Australia following this victory.

He also wants to build on the win during the hard-court season, saying, ''This tournament gives me confidence for the next four or five weeks.'' .
