Champions typically are cocky though. Underneath their respective media images of varying degrees of humility, Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal all at least border on cockiness. Chronic injuries set Tommy back a lot more than his attitude. He may have been and still be cocky and a bit of an *******, but he has always worked hard on his game. Tomic on the other hand is a guy whose cockiness has held him back thus far. In the past at least he thought he wouldn't have to work hard to reach the top of the tour.
