Re: Matthew Barton Thread

I'm sure Matt will have some words now. Cool as in that fifth set, 14-12 winner
Great first Slam win.

Re: Matthew Barton Thread

Matt gets to overcome the euphoria of Wimbledon by playing in the Winnetka Challenger, but the let-down is exacerbated by a first round loss to on-off Canadian player Frank Dancevic, losing 46 46.

Re: Matthew Barton Thread

Dancevic has the worst 2nd serve, very disappointing tbh

Sexy red.

Re: Matthew Barton Thread

Perhaps - but Frank has had quite a decent run himself over recent weeks, so it's not as though Matt lost to some total scrub!

In the end, it was probably asking a bit much after his excellent Wimbledon for Barton to get to America, change to hard courts and start blitzing it on a dime. It's back to grass next week in Newport qualies, followed by Washington qualies, so the increased ranking will help give him more opportunities at top level qualification and should also ease the requirement for him to do Challenger qualies every week also.

Re: Matthew Barton Thread

I'm scratching my head at the moment trying to work out what Barts is doing schedule-wise. He pulled the pin on the rather ill-advised tactic of trying to qualify for every ATP tournament going in North America, came home for a bit and then did quite creditably at USO qualies (especially given that Jan Satral went on to win a round in the main draw).

But he's not playing in the Asian Challengers coming up...and I doubt his ranking is high enough to try for the East Asian ATP events...nor does he seem to be playing the first couple of post-USO American Challengers. Perhaps he'll do the Californian ones in October before coming home for the Aussie ones - either that, or he knows he only has 36 points left to defend and the body is telling him to play the year out sparingly...
