Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Really hoping the Duck can get the title this week. Would be his fifth final in a row if he is able to get past the number 6 seed in the semis. A win this week would see him move to around 327, runner up would see him move to around 346 and a semifinal loss would see him move to around 361. A win this week would see him be about 16 points out of the top 300. He is getting closer and closer to that elusive top 300 and a chance to start making challenger entry cut offs.

It has been such a rapid rise from the Duck, he started the year at 741 and now is potentially one week from a spot in the top 300. I do wonder if his success on European clay will transfer on to the challenger circuit because he could become a great option for our Davis Cup team when we have an away tie on clay. I guess we'll see but I'd love to see him get a win this week and good result in the next few weeks so he cracks the top 300. Good luck Duckie, still lots of hard work to do.

Is entered in a French 15k future on the clay this coming week where he should be seeded 4th then is on the alternates list for ATP Gstaad the week after. Would be good to see the Duck test his abilities in an ATP 250 qualifying draw on European clay given his recent results. A win in the final will have so many advantages for James and will see him just one good tournament away from the top 300. I'd like to see James stay in Europe for a little bit long just to establish a top 250 ranking and then start to move around maybe to the US or Asia for some challengers/ATP qualies.

Five finals in a row and there has been a trend win/loss/win/loss so history predicts the Duck will get up tomorrow if your a superstitious person. I would usually say that either way it goes in the final it will be good for James but in this case I think he really needs to win this one to set him up for the rest of the year and a big 2012 hopefully.

Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread

Great result for the Duck. The French future draw is out and his draw looks pretty good being seeded 4th and with the only other seed in his quarter being the 8th seed. Faces a Frenchman ranked 949 so should have a fairly easy first round ahead of him.

His confidence must be at an all time high at the moment and Tennis Australia would be absolutely licking their lips with both his and Bernard's recent results. I'd love to see him go all the way again this week but fatigue and a stronger field may mean he won't. If anyone is interested a win this week would send James to a ranking of about 291 in the world.

I guess we'll see but I think this may be one of the Duck's last futures tournaments ever, especially if he wins it. In this form he probably deserves to be on the challenger circuit but the ranking is just not quite there yet to guarantee entries every week.
