Well done James, his solid purple patch continues, and with it his climb up the rankings.

Taking this week off and then entered in a 10k future in Germany on clay. Might snare the 7th or 8th seeding for that one. The following week is entered in lots of Euro futures but only has direct entry into a Serbian 10k future so I think he'll be heading there. Sticking to the European clay is probably a good thing because he seems to be thriving. Seeing as his points from last week won't be added on until after Wimbledon his results in the first German future will add to his ranking, a semifinal showing should get him inside the top 400 and a win would send him to about 375.

Probably jumping the gun a bit expecting him to go deep but if he were to be ranked 375 after Wimbledon he could start entering some low paying challengers in Europe and might even make some cuts. As it stands he is currently about 60 points shy of the top 300 and if he can get inside the top 300 he would make most challenger cuts. Although if history has taught me anything James will probably get knocked out first or second round in this next German future and just be average for the rest of the year but I am hopeful James will kick on for the next few months and inspire Kubler/Mitchell to start making moves as well.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

James is the No.7 seed in a $15k Futures tournament on clay in Bolgna, Italy this week.
Good luck Duckie...

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

James through to round 2 with a straight sets win



If he could win this title he would be up to around 350 hopefully

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

James is going to have to make at least the final this week to take his number 2 Aussie '92 spot back from Ben Mitchell. A win this week would see James move around 350 in the world. Big opportunity for him this week considering this is a 15k future. If this back and forth battle between James and Ben Mitchell keeps happening then both are going to be playing Grand Slam qualifying by the time the US Open comes around!

Neither are far from the top 300, both just about two 15k futures titles away and if James picks one up this week then the potential year end ranking for him could be quite amazing considering where he was ranked this time last year. Come on James, bring another one home!

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Into the quarterfinals this week with a battle 6-3 3-6 7-5 win. Number 3 seed from Italy up next should be a challenge for James but lets hope he can get up again.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

And he does keep it going, beating the No.3 seed Italian Matteo Marrai 46 64 64, coming from behind again to beat the clay-court grinders on their own turf. Impressive. Great result.
Up against the No.1 seed Italian Matteo Viola next. Will just have to raise his game again.
Go Duckie
