Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Ben is back in Oz after the push for the US Open qualies did not materialize.

I wonder what his schedule will be like in the coming months. Perhaps playing the 15K Futures events in Toowoomba and Cairns in early September?

Ben kicks off his first round in Shanghai with a 6-1 6-1 win over wildcard Yan Bai. He will play a qualifier next.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

That's the one of the luckiest draws I've ever seen.

2nd seed withdraws -> Mitchell gets his place.
Wild card up 1st.
Guaranteed of a qualifier 2nd.
In the 8th seed section, who is significantly lower ranked than the other seeds.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party



He has been very lucky in life. He's insanely good looking, has an amazing body, now this draw in Shanghai!? The luckiest.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Amazing draw. What luck !!! Up there with Smebden and Duckman. Lol
Hope he makes use of it.

And starts well - beating Yan Bai easily in first round.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Awful result today for Ben. Hopefully he proves me wrong but I cant see him improving a lot from here. I think futures tournaments and early round challenges is about the best we can hope for.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

omg i cant seems like a massive choke on the paper, to a player ranked worse than 450 in atp rankings. i was expecting ben would take qfs points at least given how weak his draw was. oh whatever

He has played Uchiyama twice before and both were tight three set contests. It's a poor loss but it's not the end of the world. He's had a quite good year and is almost at his career high ranking. Still young as well.
