Re: Matthew Ebden

Nice effort against Gasquet. Was only broken once in the first set and then got broken at the beginning of the second and broke straight back and kept it on serve till he got broken at 4-4 after threatening Gasquet on his serve beforehand. Considering what a super talent Gasquet is Ebden should be happy and certainly did his Australian Open Wildcard hopes no harm.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Yeah was a good effort in Brisbane but it I am very interested to see how Matt goes in Sydney qualies. If Matt can qualify for Sydney as well that would be extremely impressive. He is going to have to get that wildcard into the aussie open to do that though because he cannot afford to skip AO qualies.

Good luck in Sydney Matt I'll be cheering for you.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Although Matt is already at a career high ranking he is going to move inside the top 250 after this week so thats great for him. I'd really like to see Matt solidify a place in the top 220 becuase I think he is playing well enough at the moment to build towards big results on the challenger tour.

I see him as being in a similar position to Marinko Matosevic now as he was last year when he built off the strong futures results and is now basically a main stay on the challenger tour. Lets hope Matt can have a good 2010 and a top 150 place isnt that far away!

"Totally agree Matchu - great to see players like Marinko and Ebden proving that they are not too ""old"" as perceived by TA.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Nice to see TA finally give Matt a wildcard into something. He plays Reister in Sydney qualies tommorow which could be difficult.

He should win this if he carries his form over from Brisbane

Re: Matthew Ebden

A bit of a shame. Looked good after the first set as well. At least it will allow him to get in some good practice on the Aus Open courts.

Re: Matthew Ebden

He has played a lot of tennis and has had some great results over the last few months - he might just need to regroup now and get himself ready for Aus Open. Good luck to him. A couple of good wins here thouigh might have secured that last wildcard in Aus Open - still surely he has a good chance...

Re: Matthew Ebden

Won a close three setter. Now plays the talented but injury prone Przysiezny in what will be a tough match.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Re: Matthew Ebden

Ebden qualifies!! Ebden d. Michal Przysiezny 7-5 6-2
Possible 1st round matches:
Hewitt
C. Rochus
Sela
Ram
Ferrero
Moya
Davydenko
Almagro
Becker
Grosjean
Tomic
Murray
Lu
Koellerer
Monfils
Benneteau

Most qualifiers will get a pretty kind draw with the likes of Ram, Lu, Grosjean and Rochus all drawn against qualifiers. I hope he doesn't get Davydenko, Murray or Monfils.

Sirianni up next.

Re: Matthew Ebden

. Great effort Matt against a very good opponent. Hopefully he can avoid the big names because he's capable of beating a fair few players on that list.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Re: Matthew Ebden

It's all come very quickly for Matt he gets his first ATP win this year and is going to play in his first Grand Slam main draw. In October last year Matt was ranked 453 and as it stands at the end of the Australian Open he will move to about 215 in the world and if he can win his first round at the Aussie Open he will move to about 187 in the world which would basically spell the end of future tournaments for him and see him play exclusively on the challenger tour which I think he belongs there given recent form.

Come on matty we need another aussie player playing challengers every week.
