Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Ito takes the first set against Ben 6-4. Ito breaks again and leads 3-1. Seems too strong for Ben. Hopefully Ben can fight back...
Ben saves three more break-point from 0-40 but in a battle royale double faults to give Ito another BP, saves that then DF's again and Ito gets the second break to lead 4-1, then Ito holds for 5-1. Uphill battle for Ben now.
Three aces help Ben get to 2-5.
Two match points for Ito, then no fairy-tale ending for Ben as he goes down 64 62.
Ben served 11 aces but had 6 doubles faults. Saved eight break points out of 11 but could not take advantage of the two he created against Ito.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Looking at the match stats his second serve needs some work as it seems Ito was all over it. Good intro for Ben though into the ATP and he now has a taste of what he needs to do to achieve success.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

It might sound unfair but I expected at least a set from Ben in that match-up...

Shame Look couldn't get through!

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Nice win by Ben over Leo Mayer 6-4 6-3 in the first round of Sydney Qualifying.
First top 100 win I think?

Plays the winner of Matosevic - Kukushkin next.
