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.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Good month for him although hopefully we won't be seeing him play too many futures next year.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Ben has entered the future in Traralgon in three weeks time. He will almost definitely enter Bendigo the following week to finish off his year. He has 22 points to defend from this little block at the end of last year so it should be interesting to see how Ben handles defending points properly for the first time in his career. It would be good if he could pick up a title at one of them and break into the top 250. Not only will he guarantee direct entry into the AO playoff but will also have a very strong chance at making the qualifying cut for the 2012 Grand Slams.

The potential from here is really quite huge with a likely main draw wildcard at Brisbane, Sydney and Aus Open qualies (maybe an Aus Open MD WC as well) and a weak field in Burnie/Caloundra Challengers to really kick off the year with a lot of points and perhaps a spot in the top 200.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

The draw is very with the number 2 seed James Lemke out. The only one i could see troubling Ben would be number 3 seed Ze Zhang. What would Ben's ranking go up to if he won this?

If he won he would move to about 226. After that he has 18 more points to defend so if he would like to stay around the 220 mark he will probably needs to either win or make the final in Bendigo next week. Either way Ben has had a great year and really has been the player of the year over all the Aussie futures this year. I think he is definitely a strong chance at being granted a Brisbane main draw wildcard.
