How about winning a match first, before asking how many futures, points etc? Just sayin'

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Your best return is 1 point and you want to know how many you have to WIN to get into French Open Qualies ? I admire your ambition but this sounds highly unlikely . Josh Goodall has won 7 10k,s 1 15k and been in 2 15k finals. And he,s still not certain at about 227 in the world. If your serious you should try aim at getting 2 points first never mind getting comfortable at that level !

I understand what both of you are saying but I want to know if it is realistically possible to play in next years Aus Open.

Re: How many Futures... ?

So basically I need to win 17 Futures to stand any chance of playing next years Aus Open?

Eeriet, play some Challengers in Asia, they are easier than Spanish futures and you win more points.

Re: How many Futures... ?

Definetly avoid the futures in Spain,USA,France. Go for ones in Cambodia, Panama or Iran.

Most of my futures are in Spain, are you telling me to avoid because they are the hardest?

The futures in the USA are the hardest, but Spain is probably 2nd. You will get some really good players even in qualies. If you were to go to some other nations there would be some prtety poor players in the qualie rounds.

Thanks for the heads up.

Re: How many Futures... ?

Realistically? You aren't playing in 2013 Aussie Open if your best result so far is 0-6 1-6...how can people possibly be this delusional?
