In 2004 and 2006, respectively, Tomic won the 12s and 14s Orange Bowl titles – one of the most prestigious events on the junior tour.

Playing his first singles event on the junior tour in 2006, he successfully qualified for the Sunsmart 18 and Under Canterbury Championships, and went on to win the title defeating Dae-Soung Oh of Korea 6–3, 6–2 in the final. His success continued, winning the next three tournaments he played in (one of which was also an 18 and under tournament), giving him a 25 match winning streak. Tomic was able to extend this streak to 26 at the Riad 21 Junior tournament in Morocco before falling in the round of 16.

He began 2008 by winning Nottinghill, an Australian ITF Junior event in Melbourne without dropping a set. Two days later he started his campaign for the Australian Open Juniors title as the 5th seed. Tomic went on to win defeating the 25th, 11th, 8th and 1st seed before beating 10th seed Tsung-Hua Yang of Chinese Taipei 4–6, 7–6(5), 6–0 in the final. His win made him the youngest winner of the Australian Open Junior Boys' Championships in the Open Era.

Four months later, at Roland Garros, Tomic, the number one seed, fell in the quarter finals to Guido Pella of Argentina, losing 6–7(2), 3–6. At Wimbledon, Tomic was again the number one seed, but fell in the semi-finals to Henri Kontinen 7–6(3), 6–4. In a notable quarter final match, Tomic played another rising star, Henrique Cunha of Brazil, and came through victorious in three sets 4–6, 6–4, 6–3. Tomic also finished runner-up in the Wimbledon Junior Boys' Doubles Championships with fellow Australian junior Matt Reid.

At the 2008 US Open (Boys' Singles), Tomic lost in the first round to Devin Britton of the United States in three sets.

At the 2009 Roland Garros he once again reached the quarter finals in the boy's single tournament and later once again reached the semi finals Wimbledon. At the 2009 US Open (Boys' Singles), however, Tomic won the junior grandslam title, defeating Chase Buchanan of the United States, 6–1 6–3.
