Re: Matthew Barton Thread

Barton started so well at the beginning of the year, it suggested a spectacular year for him. But something must have worn off, as he has failed to duplicate his amazing start to the year.

He has earned 173 pts so far this year, and has 43 pts to defend. So if he can get back to his early year form, confidence and fitness, he could have a good second half to the year. He only has 6 pts to defend before the US Open cut-off, so will make the qualies draw. Let's hope it starts again for him there.

Re: Matthew Barton Thread

I agree with you RustyOz!

To be fair to Matt I think he has gone from futures last year straight into Challengers this year, where a lot of others have a couple of years at futures level prior to going into Challengers. Will do him good over time and he has had a few really good wins this year.

Pass for me

Re: Matthew Barton Thread

Matt plays Americas finest Donald Young in the first round of the US Open qualifying.

Re: Matthew Barton Thread

Oooohhh Matty Barton... going so well against DY at 5-5 in the first set, serving first and then...
the implosion...
Drops serve to trail 5-6, loses set 5-7 and then dumps his bundle. Loses 8 games in a row to acquiesce 5-7, 0-6 and bow out of the US Open qualifying at the first hurdle. Must say it was a tough draw, up against DY.

Withdrew first round (or lost) in Alice Springs Futures and then did not play Sydney, so presume he is injured. Last I heard he was down on confidence and was just training but did have some niggling injuries. A pity, he started the year so well but has been down hill for him since then.

Was listed in Melbourne but withdrew due to injury. Was in Sydney for the ITF events but didn't play and was still injured then. I suspect he'll be working towards the AO playoff at the December Showdown.
