Re: Matthew Ebden

Matt beat Fish 63 64. he got lucky at 44 and deuce in the second when Fish did a Serena Williams and yelled cmon when Ebden still had a play on the ball, and after that Fish self destructed and Matt didn't lost another point. but anyway another good win for Matt, he really saves his best form for the masters!!

Re: Matthew Ebden

yeah, well done, Matt! so happy for him! Matt has got a great form, actually won 5 matches in a row which is never easy... correct me but isn´t it Matt´s first win over a top 10 player? I really liked the way he played today... and as SammyC said he was very luck when it was 44 and deuce in the second set when Fish shouted when the ball was still in the game and lost the point and Matt was given an advantage... I was a little bit confused what was happening but the umpire knows the rules pretty well and Fish´s arguing was unnecessary because his yell was unfair he might know that... next up is Isner but I feel Matt has a good chance to get through as well...

He beat Simon in shanghai last year when Gilles was top ten.

Edit:actually Gilles was 12. So yeah congrats to Matt on his first top ten win.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Way to go Matt. That result will gain some respect and open some eyes. Congrats to Matt. Shows the other Aussies what can be achieved.
Good luck against Isner.

Re: Matthew Ebden

If Matt can beat Fish, he could match it with Isner. All depends on Isner's serve on the day. Matt will be praying for a windy day! Match could be live on ESPN (Fox 508).

Re: Matthew Ebden

A good match by Matt, in which he served well but could not take the few opportunities created, going down 46 57 to lanky John Isner.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Johns serve saved him. Matt had a few break points towards the end of the second set. Still a great week. And he is in the main draw for Miami next week so hopfully he can do some more damage.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Matt played well but Johnny could use his best weapon whenever he needed.. shame Matt didn´t take one of that opportunities he got at the end of the second set but overall great tournament that gives me a lot of confidence.... looking forward to Miami hope he will record some good results there...

Re: Matthew Ebden

Matt battles hard and pushes Querrey to three sets but the big serving American guns prove to be too big and Ebden goes down 1-6, 7-5, 7-5.
He must have learnt a bit in the first set and then picked off Querry's serve in the second.
Hard luck Matty - that is pretty close.
