It is likely that this week he will train at the Tennis Australia base in Spain and on the week of the 12th of July he is entered in a Spanish future where he is the first alternate so he should get into that one directly. The week after he is no where near direct entry in the following weeks spanish future. After this result it probably would have been better to play the UK futures on Grass but doesn't matter, he will learn more in Spain.
I'd say it is very likely he will play the US Open boys tournament, he has a ranking high enough now to get direct entry so I can't see any harm in not playing. Hopefully Benny does well in some more futures later this year and can get around that top 600 mark. He should get some wc's next as well, probably qualifying Brisbane and qualifying Aus Open are givens for him now.
