Re: The Aggressive Authom (Cheering Thread)

Yeah I wonder too. He was on an entry list for a challenger next week and he's out. Trying to find him on an entry list for a future but nothing ...

Authom has been impressive in futures lately, winning the last 5 he has played Injury free he would be easily TOP150 by now..
In Happy Valley challenger(50k) this week, he reached the QFs and will play former TOP100 Ryan Harrison who defeated the 1st seed Rola.
Let's go Max

He lost 5-7, 7-5, 7-5 against Harrison who ended up winning the tournament. Thanks to this QF, he'll be back in the top 200 though.

Next goal is trying to qualify for the AO. He starts tomorrow against Van Peperzeel (484).

The good news is that his winning streak last year only started in October, which means that he has very little to defend in the first nine months of the year. If he stays injury free, he could have a shot at the top 100 this year. Certainly has the abilities to go that far imo.

Re: The Aggressive Authom (Cheering Thread)

So I've seen the first set against Harrison and everything worked quite well instead of that backhand ; the lines were with him, his serve, net skills and forehand were all doing the job nicely.

In AO:
He won his first round easily against Van Peperzeel. Next round against Lucas Vanni (seed 29) who's not impossible to beat for sure, GL

I also hope he can reach TOP100 and he better do it this year because he's not so young anymore and looks to be an injury prone..

Re: The Aggressive Authom (Cheering Thread)

Why does he wear a sleeve on his right arm, is he doing a Raonic impression or an injury? I know he had a shoulder problem, but it was his left, not right one.
