BERNARD Tomic’s tentative steps away from tennis’ battler ranks are gathering momentum with the former world No.17 moving into the semi-finals of China’s Chengdu Open.

It wasn’t exactly the hallowed grass of Wimbledon for the tennis prodigy and his opponent — world No.147 and qualifying lucky loser Felix Auger-Aliassime — is hardly a great of the game.

But it was still an important win for the Australian who is projected to rise from his rank of 123 before the tournament to at least 101 in the world.

It puts him in the zone of not having to attempt to qualify for the Australian Open in 2019, something he tried and failed to do at this year’s event.
