Australian-Croat Bernard Tomic has caused a huge upset by beating world number one Novak Djokovic in straight sets to give Australia a 1-0 lead over Serbia in the Hopman Cup in Perth today.
Tomic, who was born in Germany to Croatian parents, was the better player and ran out the winner 6-4, 6-4 to record the win of his career. World number 52 Tomic represents Australia after moving there with his family at the age of three. The win is the perfect warm up for the upcoming Australian Open held later this month.
