The formerly troubled Tomic, who failed to qualify a year ago for the Open when he was ranked 142nd and apparently fed up with tennis, now seems to have settled down.

Two of the most controversial tennis players in the game today have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been involved in a freakish blink-and-you'll-miss-it contentious moment during an exhibition match at the Kooyong Classic.

"I need a few more days to play and train and hopefully reach 100 percent".

Cilic added: "It took me some time to recover from the emotional end to last season with the Davis Cup".

With victories over three grand slam champions already this summer, including world No.1 Simona Halep on Wednesday, Barty says she fears no one and looms as Australia's best hope in more than a decade to break Australia's 41-year women's title drought.

"I guess it's not doing what I've been doing", said a player who quit the 2018 season in October with an elbow injury and then played basketball and worked with his charity in the off-season.

With two match points to play with, Tomic begun bouncing a ball in preparation to serve when he casually flicked another ball between his legs which had enough power to go over the net and into Kyrgios' service box.

World No. 51 Kyrgios said he was happy to see Tomic back in form after missing the Open a year ago when his ranking plummeted.

Kyrgios, who was knocked out in the second round at Brisbane last week, was beaten 6-3, 6-4 by friend and fellow comeback candidate Bernard Tomic in an all-Australian battle.

Tomic and Kyrgios will both feature at the Australian Open in Melbourne next week.

Tomic, who has been through numerous same dips and dives in his motivation and form as Kyrgios, was also pleased with how he is progressing.

On a good day for young Americans, Tennys Sandgren of the United States beat third-seeded Marco Checchinato of Italy 6-3, 6-3.

"It was good to get out on court".
