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.
And he says his best on the grass. So great results.

Go Duckworth...

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.
Yeah - I thought that would be the best for Duckworth this week.

Good on the Sydneysider for riding up the rankings so quickly. Good for him!

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Duckie wins 1st round with ease 62 64 at the expense of another Aussie, Maverick Banes. He faces No.5 seed Eric Chvojka next, but hopefully can deal with him.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Duckworth passes the test and forges a fighting 64 16 76(5) win over No.5 seed Chvojka, so keeps his hot streak going.
Hope it continues, he is doing the right thing and getting good results at his level of competence at the moment. Good experience.
Duckie plays No.1 seed Slovakian Pavol Cervenek, ranked 264 in QF round. A tough test, should be interesting.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Duckworth rises to the occasion and show his fighting qualities in a 63, 36, 63 win over the No.1 seed. Plays Gregorz Panfil next in the semis. Duckie beat Panfils recently in straight sets, so will be confident.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

James into another final this week and is going to face an unseeded German Peter Torebko. 3 finals in 4 weeks is very impressive especially when you take into account he didn't play last week so three finals in a row. Duckie will move to around 438 if he loses the final and around 408 if he wins. Would obviously be a massive win for him if he could do it, I'm hoping he stays on the European clay for a couple more weeks because he seems to be playing really well but I haven't seen him on any recent entry lists.

If he does win he'll overtake Ben Mitchell and become our second highest ranked '92 player.
