Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

MELBOURNE CHALLENGER

Aussies not fairing well in Melbourne.
After his good showing in Tiburon, I was hoping Mitchell would kick on in Melbourne, but Mitchell goes down to Bradley Klahn (ATP128) 67(3) 46. An unlucky draw but a good performance by Ben, unlucky in the end.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Well, Ben has made the doubles final with Kokkinakis. I was loving Ben's net play the last time I saw him play and I think it's great to see him doing well in doubles.

They'll face Bolt and Whittington for the title.

Yokohama Challenger

Rnd 2: After a good 76(4) 64 win over Blaz Rola (ATP186) in the 1st round, Ben goes down to Jimmy Wang (ATP174) 76(2) 60.
It will be interesting to see how Ebden goes against Wang in the next round.

Beats compatriot Reid 7-6(5), 6-4 in R1 of the Toyota CH. Up against an in form Herbert next - in all honesty I don't like his chances

Ben performs beyond expectation and wins his match against No. 3 seed Frenchie Pierre-Hugues Herbert(ATP151) 76(12), 64. Clutch tiebreak won by Ben there.
Now faces winner of Uchiyama/Rola.
Go Ben

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Toyota Challenger

QF Round: Ben bows out to No.8 seed Blaz Rola (ATP201), 36 67(6)

Should end the year ranked around 260 - may just sneak into AO qualifying.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Some decent results the last month or so from Ben. Hopefully he gets straight in to the AO QFing with his year end ranking.

It will be interesting to see how he fares in the WC Playoff coming up.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Ben into the final of the AO Wildcard Playoff. He has been really impressive this week, so clean, and his game has shown real improvement.

One more match to go!
