Sorry. Yeah that would be my guess as well. There was a period of time last year where he lost interest in the game and took a break but with his recent results I highly doubt it and the obvious guess would be injury.

You are correct, Matt is injured at the moment and is still in Australia

Re: Matthew Ebden

Hmm, then I guess he won't be playing Rome next week

Why does he chose for clay BTW, anyone knows? His recent success came from HC, why does he chose for Rome at not for Athens or the US?

I think it would have something to do with the French Open wildcard, probably thought he was in with a good shot and wanted to his worth on clay.

Re: Matthew Ebden

He will be the Davis Cup hitting partner for Australia again next week. Hopefully that means a tour return isn't too far away.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Matt is third up on court 4 tonight against Minar who is coming off a Cairo Challenger victory. Hopefully Matt can put in a respectable performance. Any idea on what we can expect from him?

Re: Matthew Ebden

Matt is heading towards pulling off a major upset in the first round at Zagreb. Minar cruised through the first set 6-1 before Matt hit back and won the second set in the tiebreaker and is now leading 2-0 in the deciding set.

Re: Matthew Ebden

. Great effort Matt. Pulled off a huge upset. Will be good to see how he goes against Kavcic who hasn't been in great form.

PerthNow columnist and grand slam contender Matt Ebden looks ahead to French Open after Davis Cup win

THE end of one chapter marks the beginning of another in the tennis world and my latest one opened with 24-hours of flying from Brisbane, to Perth, to Singapore, to Frankfurt and, finally, to the Croatian capital of Zagreb, where I write this column.

After a strong performance in Brisbane over the weekend, Australia whitewashed its Davis Cup tie against Japan 5-0.

The bigger picture is that we are now only one tie away from regaining a place in the Davis Cup World Group for next year, which consists of the top 16 tennis playing nations.

West Australian grand slam contender Matt Ebden joined the PerthNow and The Sunday Times column team last week. To read his opening column, 'World on the line for Aussies', click here.

Australia will play-off in September against a World Group country facing relegation after.

As we are a challenging nation we will, more than likely, play an away tie - unless we pick up a seeding if the individual rankings of players in our team are high enough.

Possible nations we may have to compete against if we do not receive a seeding are USA, Germany or Sweden.

If we are to get a seeding, we could have a home tie against countries such as Belgium, Italy, South Africa or Brazil.

In the past two play-off ties we haven’t had much luck having to play Chile in Chile and Serbia in Serbia, both on clay and against some of the toughest clay court opponents in some of the most hostile venues in the world.

But that bridge will be crossed in September. For now, the French Open looms.

After the Davis Cup, I took a 5hr flight from Brisbane back to Perth before flying a 5hr flight to Singapore the following day with a connecting 12hr flight to Frankfurt and finally a 1hr30min flight to Zagreb, Croatia, where I will compete in the Zagreb Open on clay leading into the Paris slam next week.

The rest of the team will take similar journeys with Lleyton (Hewitt) and Handles (Paul Hanley) returning to Europe for the Madrid Masters, Looch (Peter Luczak) also returning to Europe for a lead-in tournament and Carsten (Ball) flying back through the US, also to play a lead-in tournament on clay.

We will then all converge on Paris for the French Open at Roland Garros from May 23-June 6.

This year could mark a turning point for Australian tennis on dirt after hosting our first Davis Cup tie on clay in seven years.

It was a strong week and we can now take to the European courts with more experience and confidence behind us.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Thanks for the article. Ebden is a man with a really good head on him, I think he can push up the rankings if he can stay injury free. I just hope he keeps focused and plays well.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Kavcic defeated Matt 63 62. Matt is still getting some valuable match practice on clay in the doubles where he has teamed up with Andre Begemann to reach the semis defeating the second seeds in the process.

Re: Matthew Ebden

Matt drew Kazakhstani/Russian Yuri Schukin. Schukin is coming off a tournament win in Zagreb and should beat Matt unfortunately on clay. One thing in Matt's favour is that Yuri's match didn't finish until yesterday and has to make the trip from Zagreb to Paris. Even if Matt were to spring a surprise and beat Schukin he would have to take on Joao Souza who made the semis of Santiago earlier on in the year and he wouldn't have much of a chance against the top half of his section against the likes of Gil, Haider-Maurer, Hrbaty and Klizan.

Hopefully Matt can put in a good performance but we shouldn't expect too much here.
