This specimen has the weak, leggy look of a plant whose light requirements
are not being met. Tomatoes can take as much sun as you can give them, and
do best in 8hrs+ of direct overhead sun.

You have not indicated your location or latitude - there may  not be enough
sun to grow proper tomatoes at this time in your area.

You also may be low on nutrients.

Thank you for your help!
Some additional information: I planted that tomato to a 25 cm wide 
pot, in a mixture of potting soil and normal soil. I placed it to my 
southern window.
2 days before I transplant it to pure potting soil. (I placed it to a 
bigger pot, and I changed the soil.) I saw, that its root is small and 
withered. I washed down it with clear water. This transplant wore out 
it hardly, and lost the bottom half of its leaves.
I link some photo about it: first 2 photo were taken after this 
transplant; last 2 photo were taken cca. 2 days later.

What can I do to my plant become more strenght?

Thank you for your help!
