Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Michell won convincingly in 1st round at Wimbledon. Let's hope he can keep going against the seeded players. All good experience.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Wins his R2 match 75 63 over the #16 seed Kevin Kraweitz.

22 winners including 6 aces, 12 UE's, 80% of first serves in, 80% of net points won. Some good stats in there.

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Mitchell knocks off the No.3 seed. Getting the results away from the spotlight dominated by Kubler. Sometimes less exposure means less pressure, translates into better performance, equals good results. Keep going banana-bender

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Some pictures I took from his match vs Krawietz:








It was the first time I had even heard of him, and I only caught the last few games of his match although I liked how he played from what I saw.

He just beat the 7th Seed Dzumhur 5/6 6/2 6/2 and now plays the unseeded Brit Golding in the Semi Finals. Good luck

I'm curious, why is the thread called the Banana Party?

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Great Pics Papakori.
Mitchell is from Queensland in Australia and they grow plenty of bananas in Queensland, so Banana Party time.
Well done Mitchell, who has equalled the efforts of Jonesie in 2007 and Tomic in 2008 & 2009 by reaching the semis. Now to go one step further...
Good luck Ben...

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Mitchell is a set and a break up against Golding, hopefully he can bring it home!

Thanks for explaining it

I caught some of the match on TV here in the UK and he was very impressive, giving hardly any free points to his opponent. If he plays like that in the final, he will be very difficult to beat.

Good luck!

Re: Ben Mitchell's Banana Party

Ben

Btw, I started the thread () and I didn't make it the banana thing because they're grown in Qld, I made it that because I think about Ben's banana all the time.

Best of luck in the final! I saw an interview he did on Channel 9 and he comes across as such a humble, cool guy.

that is really funny. I think Ben has a really good chance in the final tommorow and I really hope he can win so that we can have another top ten junior. If Ben wins he will go number 2 and Jason Kubler will stay number 1 as well as James Duckworth staying inside the top 10 as well. Ben may even be a really good chance to finish the year number 1 if he wins Wimbledon. If he wins Wimbledon and has a good showing at the US Open I can't see anyone catching him because he has no points to defend this year at all.

Good luck Benny I think you can do it.
