But better news




Ball receives US Open wildcard



New York,15 August 2008
AP


American-born Australian Carsten Ball will make his ATP debut at the US Open thanks to a wild card from the US Tennis Association announced today.

Ball's ranking rose inside the top 200 for the first time in his career this week, ascending to world No.182 on the back of a semifinal apperance at the Binghamton Challenger event in the USA.

Laurent Recouderc of France, who won his first-round matches at both of his only ATP events at the French Open and Kitzbuhel last year, also was invited along with Americans Scoville Jenkins, Amer Delic, Brendan Evans, Austin Krajicek, Jesse Levine and Sam Warburg.

The 21-year-old Jenkins is ranked a career-high 195th. He won three matches to reach the main draw of the French Open this year.

He made it to the US Open last year through qualifying, then lost to eventual champion Roger Federer.

Delic was the US college singles champion in 2003 and is now ranked No.128. He qualified for this year's Australian Open and made it to the second round, along with Levine and Warburg

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Carsten Ball will play Viktor Troicki of Serbia in the first round of the US Open, who has recently reached a career high ranking of 71. Not a bad draw - could have been worse!

Good luck Ball.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Great first set, but I think the nerves got to him after going down a set in his first GS.

Article from TA Website

Ball gets the call-up for Chile


Melbourne,28 August 2008
Tennis Australia

Carsten Ball is on his way to Chile in September as part of the Optus Australian Davis Cup Team.

The Optus Australian Davis Cup selectors have rewarded Carsten Ball’s recent rankings surge with a place in the national squad for the crucial tie in Chile next month.

Australia faces a tough task on clay against Chile in its Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group Play-off in Antofagasta.

Ball is the first player named in the squad, following his rise to 188 in the world with some good form on the circuit. The left-handed son of former Australian player Syd Ball (who reached 63 in the world) was Australia’s top performed junior in 2005 and this will be his second appearance in an Optus Australian Davis Cup squad after he was chosen for the hitting partner role in the Austria tie in Sydney in 2005.

Ball said it was a tough gig first time round but a good experience.

“They’ve invited me down there [Chile] so I will be a little bit more experienced and a little bit more ready to go.

“I'm looking forward to maybe fighting to get a spot on the team but I will just be happy to be there and supporting everybody and hopefully they want me to be there to try and better everybody else, which I am happy about,“ he said.

“His results in the last six months warrant his inclusion. He’s just turned 21 and he’s got his career ahead of him, I look forward to working with him,” Optus Davis Cup captain John Fitzgerald explained today.

Fitzgerald said the full squad wasn’t finalised yet and would be named late next week.
