Alex is currently playing in the qualies at Loy Yang Power Traralgon International.
Alex Bolt vs Matt Roso 6-7(5) 6-0 6-3
In the second round of qualies he is playing the number seven seed Kazuma Kawachi ranked at 119 in the juniors he is leading 6-1, wouldn't be surprised if he qualified and did some damage in the main draw, hope he gets a WC into the junior Aus Open.
Alex won that match 6-1 7-5 in the end, he then played another seeded player in the final round of qualies and won 6-0 6-7 10-8. He will play 15th seed world number 30 Mathias Wunner of Germany would be great if he was to win this.
Alex ended up losing his second round match to a brit ranked around about 50 in the world i think the score was 7-5 4-6 7-6, so very close match, there is only one aussie left in the draw and thats Luke Saville hope he goes onto win it.
Yesterday Alex played first round at the junior open. He played Bruno Sant'anna who is the ninth seed. Alex lost 6-1 3-6 8-10. So just lost bad luck, hope he plays all the GS this year, espically because this will be his last year to play juniors because he will turn 19 straight after the new year.
Not sure of his credentials for the AIS selection but he is active at the moment in Europe touring with the other AIS players. He has qulaified for a Futures tournament in Serbia this week and won his first round match yesterday, which is good.
ATP ranking currently 1175, so must be somebody's favourite to be in the AIS.
Anyone else know more?
Bolt doing well on the clay in Italy as a qualifier. He is through to the QF's beating world number 456 Marc Rath 6-3 6-4. Then beating local and world number 349 6-4 3-6 6-4. He will have step it up next against Phillip Oswald who is ranked 237 and only lost 6 games in 2 matches.
