Bernard Tomic, who will attempt to defend his Sydney title this coming week, says he has refocused and feels good about his game. Tomic ended 2013 with five straight first-round losses, and received some criticism after celebrating his 21st birthday in November with lap dancers at a night club.

''Everyone has their off time. Some people use it differently than others,'' Tomic told the Sydney Morning Herald. “But I'm back into tennis now, back into tournaments, and this is something that is very important for me and I'm ready for the Australian summer and hopefully I can do better because each year I've started doing better and better in Australia. So hopefully this is going to be an even better one.''
