    come tomorrow

    This is from an American figure skater, Jeremy Abott's twitter. He is talking about unexpected errors of a Japanese figure skater, Mao Asada in the Olympic Games.

    I just felt my heart break! Mao is a great champion and will be stronger than ever come tomorrow.

    Does "come tommorrow" mean the same thing as "tommorrow"?
    Also, is "come tommorrow" short for something?

    In that use, "come tomorrow" means "in the future" not just tomorrow the day.

    Re: come tomorrow

    It's a fixed expression used with days. Come Sunday we will know who won the gold medal.

    Mao Asada was going to compete in the free skate the next day. She had proclaimed that she would retire after Sochi Olympics.
    In this case, does it still mean "in the future, not just tomorrow the day"?

    In that case I would understand it to literally mean tomorrow.
