Anyone know if there are enough points on offer and enough tournaments for him to earn direct entry into the Australian Open?
Matt still has 105 points to defend this year: 20,20,20,45
Is ranked ATP122 with 465 points. Needs approximately 530pts to be around ATP104-106 to get into Oz Open Main Draw, so needs to earn 170pts before mid December.
At +-27 pts now in Napa, so needs 143 pts.
If goes to final in Napa. +- 48pts, so needs 122pts.
If wins Napa, +-80pts, so need 90 pts.
Still plenty of Challengers for Matt to access those points, if he chooses to continue to play MD Chanllengers and not ATP qualies. Will need to get to semis in 4 more tournaments. Do-able, but a Challenge.
