Not sure what to make of this year from Bolt. Career high ranking without over playing is a plus however he needs to gain some points quickly to get into US Open quallies. Next year will be when he makes his move in my opinion.
Aussies not fairing well in Melbourne, but this time against a fellow Aussie:
Bolt goes down against James Duckworth (ATP147). Expected, but Bolt did fight back after the rain delay, from a break down in the 1st set to go to the tie-break, but out-gunned there 2-7, and then drops first service game of 2nd set, and not able to get it back, eventually going down to Ducky 67(2) 36.
