Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Sorgi is promising but still only a Futures level player so James should win.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

we´ll see he played a couple of very tight matches lately with a bit luck or bad luck on his side so it would be nice to win a match with the easier way...

James wins 7-5 4-6 6-3. Yet another long match and closer than I would've expected. Plays Galdon next who beat 5th seeded Alves.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

I saw only the first set and Sorgi looked very talented with some strokes he put in James was 42 down but managed to come back... happy James won this match... those matches against the South Americans seem to be never easy for James and pretty tight overall it doesn´t matter if Ducky wins or loses.... he beat Galdon in the 1st round in Blumenau so hopefully he can repeat it...

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

James plays another three setter, and wins, again advancing at the expenses of Galdon. He sneaked the 1st set 76(5), lost the 2nd set 57 and smoked the 3rd 61.
Keep going Duckie ...

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Good. Duckworth a real chance for a semi-final showing here with the number two seed out.

EDIT

Duckworth is now ahead of Hewitt in the rankings and is the #4 Aussie.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

well done Ducky! happy he was able to make it through... he should have won in 2 sets because was serving for the match in 54 up but now it doesn´t matter because it seemed he looked pretty well in the 3rd set... a lot of points were added under his belt and can gain other ones if James wins today he has a great opportunity to make semis...

he´s ahead of Hewitt now and overall he has climbed around 100 spots up so far this year.... that´s great!

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Looking good for the wc spot. Marinko keeps losing and with a good showing they would be crazy not to give it to James.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Duckie into the semis, winning the battle of the youngsters with a straight sets win 75 63 over Argentinian teenager Facundo Arguella.
I reckon another win, up against Julio Silva, will put him in prime position for that French WC. If he wins the tournament, his case will be even stronger.
32 year old Silva will have the clay court experience but Duckie will have the height and serving advantage.
Go Duckie...

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Arguella hasn't been that good since the middle of last year but it's great that JD took advantage. Go James against Silva.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Marinko was also a no show in his doubles match today which is not good form and does not reflect well I am sure the selectors would have noticed this as well.

They actually put down "No Show" as his reason for withdrawing, normally they list the injury when a player pulls out.
