Would be a great result if he could win this and as Matchu said get his ranking to 239 and be pushing top 200 be seasons end. Anyone reckon he is in with a chance to get a few WC's this Summer?
Considering Bernard is now in the top 50 and will make the cut for Brisbane I would say there is a very high chance that Ben will get a wildcard into the main draw of the Brisbane International. Not only is Ben is a Queenslander but he is also young which the selectors in Brisbane love. I think Duckworth is also a good chance for a wildcard in Brisbane as well. As for Sydney I would think there would be less chance of Ben getting a wildcard there as Lleyton will be taking one of the wildcards. The Aussie Open wildcard is probably a realistic goal for Ben and if he finishes the year in the top 200 I'd say he is almost a definite for a main draw wildcard at the AO.
