His ranking will go up to around 505, but that won't be until after Roland Garros is finished.

Duckie currently ranked 631, with 30 points; defending 0 pts this week; 18 pts gained for winning $10k Futures, will go to 48 pts - with 48 pts (from 13 tournament)should go to about 540 in ranking. (After Roland Garros)
Hope he continues this rise, will be good for him to now play $15k events to get more points.

Sounds like wishful thinking from Brent Larkam. There is still a massive road ahead for James. After this win he is on 48 points but he needs to at least gain around another 152 points to guarantee a Grand Slam qualifying berth. Not taking anything away from this week but lets not jump the gun here like we have with so many other juniors. James has a massive road ahead of him if he wants to get to that position. Still great to see both James and Ben Mitchell winning their first futures tournaments this year and nice to see the 1992 class doing well.

James has done something the Golden child TOMIC hasn't achieved - won a futures clay court tournament.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Duckworth into the semis in Poland, after a repeat of last week's win over Poland's Blazej Koniusz. This time he is in a higher level tournament than last week. in a $15k Futures, so doing very well. Faces up against No.1 seed, the 162 ranked big serving Pole giant Jerzy Janowicz - a tough assignment...
Go Duckie, get to another final.

No need to qualify that with the clay surface. Tomic NEVER won a single futures event, and only made one final when he was 15. His surprise challenger when he was 16 kind of enabled him to skip futures (well that and wild cards, AO runs and an anorexic playing schedule).

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

His match would have been 2 1/2 hours ago. Any word on the result? Also the final is due to be played today in one hour.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Ended up losing the final in straight but still a good two weeks for him. Plays in the Polish 10k this coming week and then another 15k the week after in Poland again. Potential to have a very very good month in Poland considering he has already gained 33 points in two weeks. He is now going to move into the top 500 so he should have a good chance of getting seeded in some futures events after this week. Between now and the end of November he has just two points to defend in September so he could really make something happen if he continues this form.

Perhaps TA were right when they were saying he'll be playing RG qualies next year. He seems to be quite talented on the red dirt.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Great reult for James beaing Janowizc. Unkucky Duckie could not get the win in the final.
Even though he is in a purple patch and playing well James should considering missing one of these Futures events, as hard as it is to contemplate now, to give his body a rest. If you lose 2nd or 3rd round then it is ok to play every week, but playing 5 matches a week when making the finals every week takes a lot out of a player mentally as well as physically.
