Bernard Tomic says that he is confident that he can beat Roger Federer in the third round of the Australian Open.

Bernard Tomic has insisted that he can beat Roger Federer in the third round of the Australian Open.

The 20-year-old, who has lost each of his past three meetings with the world number two, goes into the contest in fine form, having won 10 consecutive singles matches.

"What a match it is," said Tomic. "10 out of 10 now with matches. I feel so confident. This is the perfect time to play him.

"I've got a good attitude to win. I've beaten a lot of good players over the last past two weeks, especially Novak [Djokovic at the Hopman Cup].

"I think I can do it - I'm ready. I mean, I'm not going to say I don't have the belief. I do have the belief now. It's possible. I showed that in Perth, that you can beat these players. Now I'm going to try to beat him."

Tomic is ranked 43rd in the ATP world rankings.
