Just qualified for the main draw of Auckland ATP with a three set win 6-2 4-6 6-3. Nice to see more aussie players playing and more importantly qualifying for ATP tournaments. Would be great to see James get a win here.

He is currently ranked 456 in the world which isn't overly impressive but with almost all his big results last year coming at the end of the year you would have to think he is a good chance to make waves in the first half of this year.

Good luck in the main draw James!

01-11-2010, 02:25 AM
It was nice to see him have a run of successes in the US late last year in some good quality futures tournaments and now qualifying for an ATP Tournament. Also favours the clay.

01-12-2010, 02:00 AM
He lost 6-1 7-5 to Albert Montanes. Not a bad effort in his first ever tour match and against the world number 31. The ATP site says he was a wild card which is frustrating because he earned his spot in the draw through qualifying.

01-12-2010, 08:51 AM
I think hes the future of Aussie Tennis..he looks a lot like hewitt to me.

01-12-2010, 10:34 AM
I think hes the future of Aussie Tennis..he looks a lot like hewitt to me.

Have you seen him play, i watched live scores of his match in the final round of qualifying, also how old is he and how tall, but he looks pretty good. I've never heard of him before some good results in US future tournaments and a win which must of been a confidence booster.

01-12-2010, 06:07 PM
Ive seen him play,hes not that tall and looks about 19

01-12-2010, 07:53 PM
He's turning 22 on January 25th.

01-13-2010, 08:52 AM
he got destroyed by darcis in AO qualys today 6-1 6-2, maybe hes not the future of ausi tennis :rolleyes:

01-16-2010, 11:15 AM
Very impressive results in the USA and very good effort qualifying in NZ. Well done.

Hewitt =Legend
02-04-2010, 04:26 AM
Lost in the 2nd round of Burnie to Grega Zemlja 7-5 4-6 7-6 after being up a break in the third and having match points. Still a good start to year qualifying for Auckland and pushing Montanes in the 2nd set and also Zemlja is in good form coming off the back of a challenger final in Honolulu so still a pretty good result for James. Good luck in your next tournament.

02-04-2010, 05:36 AM
Great effort by James. He is certainly playing himself into form.

02-20-2010, 11:58 PM
James back on the European clay and doing well. Knocked out in the semis of a Spanish Futures after defeating Pablo Santos in a close three set encounter. Santos was ranked inside the top 200 last year.

02-28-2010, 08:02 AM
lets go James.. top 100 finish this year :rocker2:

03-08-2010, 11:38 PM
Nice draw for the 15k hardcourt futures in Great Britain. Will face British Qualifiers in rounds 1 and 2. Gets alot tougher after that.

03-10-2010, 12:29 PM
James surprisingly lost in straight sets to a British Qualifier in round one. Opportunity missed here. Should have won this one.

03-22-2010, 01:52 AM
James back on the clay playing challenger qualies beating Sugita and Zampieri (World No. 214) in straights. Just waiting on the result from his match with Martin Alund to see if he made the maindraw.

03-22-2010, 06:35 PM
he played in the german league last year, anybody know if he will do it in 2010, too?

05-06-2010, 05:29 AM
James is playing a 10k Future event on the clay in Teplice, Czech Republic where he is seeded 1. Won his first round match 61 61. Now plays Nikolai Fidirko who he should beat before a potential Quarter Final against Alexander Flock.

05-13-2010, 07:42 AM
After bowing out in the Quarters to Alexander Flock last week, James is staying on the clay in the Czech Republic and playing a 10k future in Most. In the first round he defeated the in form 16 year old Czech Robert Rumler 61 63. He now plays Marc Rath in the second round.

05-14-2010, 12:57 AM
James is into the Quarters after a 76 63 win against Rath. He now plays Mecir Jr who has been playing pretty well of late.

05-14-2010, 01:35 AM
Well done hope he can atleast make the final. Good Luck where ever he plays after this tournament.

05-15-2010, 03:16 PM
After his match getting rescheduled for today James was soundly beaten by Mecir Jr 61 62.

05-20-2010, 01:43 AM
James is again playing a 10k clay futures tournament in the Czech Republic town of Jablonec Nad Nisou and won his first round against Adrian Sikora 63 61. He is seeded Number 1 but has Dennis Bloemke in his quarter who has been impressive of late.

05-20-2010, 04:14 PM
Hopefully James can go deep here this week and keep pushing up the rankings....would be good to see him in the top 300 asap!!

05-21-2010, 09:22 AM
James is into the Quarters where he will play German Jan-Lennard Struff. Struff managed to reverse his 61 63 loss to Bloemke last week to defeat him 46 76 61.

05-22-2010, 02:44 AM
James loses in the QF stage again with 7-5 2-6 6-7(1) loss to Struff. Not that bad of a loss. Next tournament for James will most likely be a futures tournament in Slovenia.

06-25-2010, 01:46 AM
After two disappointing tournaments in Slovenia, James has moved onto Germany where he made the SF of a futures last week and is into the Quarters this week where he will play 6th seed James McGee.

06-26-2010, 06:26 AM
James LEMKE (AUS) (3) defeated James MCGEE (IRL) (6) 3-6 7-6(6) 6-2

Well done James. Now has a winnable semi final against 8th seeded Belorussian Siarhei Betau.

06-27-2010, 02:27 AM
:D James LEMKE (AUS) (3) defeated Siarhei BETAU (BLR) (8) 6-1 6-3

He seems to love these German futures. Now plays former world number 3 junior Roman Jebavy in the final. James will like his chances in that one. Good luck.

06-27-2010, 06:59 PM
James won the final 6-4 6-2. He'll move to around 330 in the world the week after next. Would be nice to see James crack the top 300 before US Open qualies list comes out so he may have a chance of getting in. Still needs another future win before that happens though. Good luck in this week in Germany again James.

The week after James is heading to a big future tournament in France where he looks like he will be seeded. Hopefully James can make a run there and this week so that he will crack the top 300 and start to play challengers reguarly.

07-06-2010, 10:29 PM
Lemmers still going strong in the Futures. Needs to step up to Challengers at some stage.

07-12-2010, 04:13 AM
Lemke reached the final of the Futures in France this week. Good work

07-12-2010, 07:23 AM
Lemke reached the final of the Futures in France this week. Good work

Yeah very good result for him, he will enter the top 300 next week with this result and should start to get entry into some weaker challengers around europe. I'm not sure where he is going to play next but hopefully it is a challenger or atp qualifying.

07-25-2010, 12:29 PM
Lemke is one to watch for sure. some great scores from him. Great effort cracking the top 300.

08-13-2010, 01:21 AM
15k Clay Future - Appiano (ITA)
James LEMKE (AUS) (8) defeated Paolo BENINCA (ITA) (1424) 6-2 6-1
James LEMKE (AUS) (8) defeated Luca VANNI (ITA) (559) 6-4 7-6(3)

In the Quarters he plays Bachinger who has been in poor form for most of they year but has recorded a couple of decent results in the past three months and comfortably beat the second seed Haider-Maurer 62 61 in the second round.

08-15-2010, 02:12 AM
James lost a close three setter to Bachinger.

08-19-2010, 12:52 AM
10K Clay Future - St Poelten (Austria)
James LEMKE (AUS) (1) defeated Jeremy JAHN (GER) (928) 6-1 1-6 6-2
James LEMKE (AUS) (1) defeated Marc RATH (AUT) (836) 6-3 7-5
James LEMKE (AUS) (1) Vs Roman VOGELI (CZE) (659) (7)

James beat Vogeli 64 63 two months ago on the German clay. Hopefully James can win as he has good hopes of doing very well here with Vogeli and the 4th seed Reisseig being the only seeds that remain in the draw.

08-19-2010, 04:28 AM
Good stuff there in Austria, also James has direct entry into a challenger in Switzerland next week so hopefully he does well there too. Hopefully James stops playing futures soon and sticks exclusively to the challenger circuit.

08-20-2010, 05:49 AM
Lemke won the QF 63 75. It gets a bit tougher for James now with a match against Daniel Lustig in the Semis although he will still like his chances of making the final.

08-21-2010, 02:34 AM
James was surprisingly thumped 62 60 but in better news he and Ebelthite took out the Doubles title.

08-21-2010, 07:25 AM
James now heads to Switzerland and then the Netherlands the week after for two challenger main draws. Hopefully he can pick some points up in those two events.

08-31-2010, 03:08 AM
James is playing a 15k clay future in the Dutch town of Middelburg. In the first round he beat 2009 French Open junior champion and former world number 1 junior Daniel Berta 75 63.

09-02-2010, 03:07 AM
Won his second round against fellow Aussie Clint Thomson 75 76(4). He now plays Daniel Smethurst in the Quarters. Last time they played in March on the hardcourts in Great Britain, James won in three sets but the month before that on the clay in Spain Smethurst beat James in straight sets. Smethurst's recent form hasn't been that great though but in a sign thqat it could be on the improve he made the Quarters by defeating Mina in three sets.

09-08-2010, 01:43 AM
James lost in the first round of a Dutch challenger to Christophe Rochus 61 60. James' first serve percentage was only at 47% and had 5 double faults. Hopefully he can put in an improved performance next time.

09-08-2010, 10:59 AM
That was an unlicky draw for Lemmers, who does not get to play many tournaments at Challenger level. Did not perform well though.

09-13-2010, 02:10 AM
James is off to the 30k Todi Challenger this week where he has drawn Bastian Knittel in the first round. Knittel made the semis of a challenger in Alphen aan den Rijn last week.

09-14-2010, 01:49 PM
James is down 6-7 after a bizarre 1st set - first 7 games were breaks of serve. James served 7 DFs yet his 1st serve percentage is 74% - that means he only got 4 of 11 2nd serves in the court! (And he won those 4 points too!)

09-29-2010, 12:54 AM
James is the second seed in a clay 10k future in the Italian town of Frascati. In the first round he beat world number 701 Filippo Leonardi 6-1 6-4. In the second round he plays Giacomo Oradini (1084). James will be reasonably confident of winning this match.

10-01-2010, 12:59 AM
James won his second round match 6-2 6-2 and will now take on former top 100 player and eighth seed Razvan Sabau. Easily James' hardest match of the week so far and he will have to be playing well if he hopes to progress.

10-02-2010, 12:03 AM
Lost his QF to Sabau 6-1 3-6 3-6. Next destination will be Palermo for a 42.5k Clay Challenger.

10-02-2010, 12:12 PM
That would have been a tough loss for James, after bagging the 1st set easily. Let's hope for a kind draw in the Challenger. Lemmers needs a few Challenger wins under his belt.

10-03-2010, 05:12 AM
He has cracked the top 300 now....it would be good to see him have a big finish to the year with some wins at the upcoming challenger events so he can get direct entry for ao qualies!!

10-04-2010, 01:11 AM
Draw for Palermo.

[4] Martin FISCHER (AUT) vs Marius COPIL (ROU)
Flavio CIPOLLA (ITA) vs James LEMKE (AUS)
Stefano GALVANI (ITA) vs Ivo MINAR (CZE)
[Q] Alessandro GIANNESSI (ITA) vs [5] Alessio DI MAURO (ITA)

A decent draw for James. Cipolla has lost his last 4 matches. Hopefully James can handle lots of sliced balls otherwise he might be in a fair bit of trouble in this matchup.

10-05-2010, 02:48 PM
James lost 4-6 6-2 6-1 to Cipolla.

10-17-2010, 02:56 AM
James has made the trip across to America where he has just scraped into the MD of the Calabasas Challenger.

[1] Donald YOUNG (USA) vs Michael YANI (USA)
Jamie BAKER (GBR) vs [WC] Steve JOHNSON (USA)
Amer DELIC (BIH) vs [7] Kevin KIM (USA)

11-05-2010, 08:08 AM
James is back to the clay futures in America. Made the final last week and is now in the Quarters this week where the three other players remaining in his draw are all junior grand slam finalists. Important that he can continue winning matches and assure himself of entry into the Qualies of the Aus Open as with the depth of juniors and players like Gooch needing wildcards there is a chance he could miss out on a wildcard if he didn't make the cutoff

11-06-2010, 01:01 AM
James is into the semis after an easy 62 60 victory against Jordan Cox. Denis Kudla will be his opponent in the semis.

11-06-2010, 11:06 AM
James has had an amazing year and has shown wonderful improvement. Good luck to him and it shows that not all tennis players need to be hugely tall to succeed.

11-07-2010, 12:56 AM
James won the semi 63 64 and now plays 7th seed Adam Kellner in the final. Good luck James.

11-08-2010, 01:04 AM
He lost the final 63 76. Next tournament will most likely be the US Clay Future at Pensacola.

11-13-2010, 12:51 AM
So far so good in Pensacola.
R1: James LEMKE (AUS) (1) defeated Alexios HALEBIAN (USA) (1508) 6-2 6-1
R2: James LEMKE (AUS) (1) defeated Dimitar KUTROVSKY (BUL) (576) 6-3 6-3
QF: James LEMKE (AUS) (1) Vs Jordan COX (USA) (6) (468)

He beat Cox 62 60 last week. Hopefully he can replicate that.

11-13-2010, 11:59 PM
QF: James LEMKE (AUS) (1) defeated Jordan COX (USA) (468) (6) 6-4 6-0
SF: Dennis BLOEMKE (GER) (3) (372) defeated James LEMKE (AUS) (1) 6-2 6-2

Now off to the 50k Champaign Challenger held on the indoor hardcourts.

11-16-2010, 11:18 PM
Recorded a 64 64 win over Giovanni Lapentti in the first round. Now has a winnable second round match against Steve Johnson. Great work.

11-18-2010, 11:34 PM
Lost a close two setter to Steve Johnson 7-5 7-6(2). Good week for him getting another win at the challenger level.

12-15-2010, 08:22 AM
He is through to the Quarters of the wildcard playoff with a 64 67 62 over Jared Easton. Next up is Luczak.

12-16-2010, 12:47 AM
James lost 63 76 to Luczak. He played well and could have very easily won the second set where he had a setpoint (i'm not sure if he had more).

Hewitt =Legend
01-07-2011, 11:52 AM
James is playing Auckland qualies again this year after successfully making the maindraw last season and has drawn 3rd seed Riba in the first round. Not a bad draw at all as you can probably count on one hand the number of hardcourt matches Riba has won in his life. Hope he can get some match play here before AO qualies.

01-08-2011, 08:57 AM
Lemke lost to Riba 6/2 6/4

01-08-2011, 12:15 PM
Was hoping he might record a win over a top 100 player but not to be and it seems as though Riba did it easy in the end.

01-12-2011, 01:15 AM
James lost to Andrej Martin 61 62.

01-31-2011, 11:36 AM
A good win today for James in the first Round in Burnie. It was a long match.

02-27-2011, 02:34 PM
James took out the Mildura Futures Tournament. Great victory in his home state on the grasscourts.

R1: James LEMKE (AUS) (2) defeated Jake EAMES (AUS) 6-3 6-2
R2: James LEMKE (AUS) (2) defeated Marious ZELBA (AUS) 6-4 6-0
QF: James LEMKE (AUS) (2) defeated James DUCKWORTH (AUS) 6-4 7-6(5)
SF: James LEMKE (AUS) (2) defeated Burnham ARLIDGE (GBR) 7-6(11) 6-3
F: James LEMKE (AUS) (2) defeated Isaac FROST (AUS) 6-4 6-2

03-09-2011, 12:35 AM
Lost in the first round of the Kyoto Challenger to Peter Gojowczyk 64 62.

03-27-2011, 12:28 PM
Playing a futures in Australia this week. Seeded number 3. And i really am loving his draw! Semi Finals at least he really should make. Great chance to get into the top 200.

04-01-2011, 04:32 AM
Won his first round match 7-5 6-3.

04-02-2011, 07:44 AM
Lemke through to the QF, should be favourite after Lindahl, Jones and Mitchell all dropped out or were beaten.

04-02-2011, 07:53 AM
And now in the semis after disposing of Leon Frost 61 60. Plays Takeuchi so should make finals.

04-02-2011, 03:15 PM
Into the final where he will face Chvojka. Chvojka probably the favorite but you'd think James has a fair chance. This would be his second straight future if he was to get up tomorrow, could really set him up for the rest of the year if he was able to win tomorrow and have another good showing next week in Bundaberg.

04-03-2011, 01:24 AM
James has a huge chance here of taking the title.

04-03-2011, 09:09 AM
Good luck. Please get the win.:)

04-03-2011, 09:14 AM
James ended up winning convincingly 6-2 6-0. Second futures title of the year and both have been on different surfaces which is impressive. Important next week that he puts in another good showing, a win in Bundaberg would see him jump inside the top 250 and make the cut for both Wimbledon and Roland Garros qualifying so a fair bit on the line for him next week. Still a few good results away from taking that next step to the challengers but definitely headed in the right direction and nothing spurs you on more than winning a title.

04-03-2011, 10:42 AM
Didnt even know the match had finished. Great result.:) Also won the doubles. Would love to see him qualify for his first MD Grand Slam.

04-04-2011, 11:38 AM
James is one of the few doing well and whose ranking is going the right way. Well dome and keep the wins coming.

Hewitt =Legend
04-04-2011, 11:48 AM
James has been playing some steady ball the last couple of years.. hopefully he continues to improve this year and make the transition onto the challengers.

04-04-2011, 11:49 AM
Number one seed this week in a Futures in Australia takes on Aaron Leeder Chard in the first round. Would love to see a semi final match up with Ben Mitchell.

04-06-2011, 12:56 PM
Continues his good form with a 6-1 6-0 win in this first round. Takes on James Duckworth next so should get through.

04-07-2011, 11:18 AM
Another good win for James, 6-2 6-2 against Duckworth. Proppogia up next shouldn't give him too many problems but a potential semifinal against Ben Mitchell or Michael Look could definitely be a challenge. In saying that I think James will make it to the final again and take on Chvojka once again. 7 wins in a row now for James, lets hope he can keep riding the form train.

04-08-2011, 09:52 AM
Lemke through to the semis now with a very convincing win against Propoggia, 6-1 6-0. Very impressive for James but his semifinal against Ben Mitchell will surely be tougher than his other matches this week. Streak up to 8 now with this win. If you look at the history of these events it predicts that at least one of the finalist in the first week will make the final in the second. Brydan Klein last year won both these events in consecutive weeks last year and Greg Jones the year before was a finalist followed by a winner in the second week. So history predicts James will at least make the final this week. Hopefully he goes back to back and brings his form into Euro challengers/futures.

If James is able to win this he'll be just behind Millman and Klein in the rankings and at 23 years of age now seems like he is coming into his own. I am a little bit worried about his frame though, he is only 5'9 but then again so is David Ferrer and Tommy Robredo so it is possible. The thing I would really like to see James do is step up to the challenger level and be just as consistent ie. quaters and semis most weeks. Unfortunately I think James will be just like Millman, Klein and Jones before him and just be a first or second round casualty in the challenger after working so hard to build his ranking in the aussie futures. I would love to be proven wrong though.

EDIT: If anyone is curious James is heading to France next week for a big future tournament there and looks like he'll sneak a seeding so it could be another successful week for him but in saying that I wouldn't be surprised if he pulled out of the tournament due to fatigue.

04-09-2011, 10:22 AM
James into the final with a 6-2 2-6 6-2 win over Benny Mitchell. It is also a rematch of last weeks final with Chvojka tomorrow but after last weeks result I'm confident James will get over the line again. Streak up to 9 now. He has had a really strong start to the year and has very little points to defend in the coming months so I think he can really make a move if he continues this form overseas.

04-09-2011, 10:27 AM
very exciting news here on James. One of the real stars in Aussie tennis at the moment.

04-10-2011, 01:41 PM
James wins the final with a 6-2 6-4 win. So happy for him.:D

04-11-2011, 02:38 AM
A great two weeks for James, gets well below 300 in the rankings now and comes into the top ten of Australian Male players.

04-23-2011, 01:56 PM
James is in qualifying for Munich and takes on Ruben Bemelmans in the first round. Going to be a tough match i was very impressed when i see Ruben down in Australia this year.

04-23-2011, 04:17 PM
No luck for James with him going down 63 62 to Bemelmans. He had multiple opportunities early in the first set to go up an early break but unfortunately he couldn't capitalise and then Bemelmans started to gain the upper hand.

05-02-2011, 02:37 PM
James has made the MD in the Prague 85k clay challenger after a couple of impressive performances. He beat Alexander Flock (ranked 238th in the world) 64 61 before beating Czech wildcard Robin Stanek 64 64 and then getting past Guillaume Rufin 36 64 63. Rufin was coming off two Chilean Clay Futures where he didn't drop a set. Hopefully James can keep it up.

James takes on Denis Gremelmayer in the first round winnable match.

05-04-2011, 07:38 AM
Disappointing result with him going down 60 62. Did well to qualify but not the best way to end the week.

05-11-2011, 04:42 AM
Began the Italian 15k Clay future in Napoli on a good note with a straightforward 64 63 win over Filippo Leonardi. Next up is Nils Langer who is using his protected ranking in this tournament. I think James should be able to get past him though.

05-13-2011, 12:49 AM
No.1 seed Lemke eases past Langer 76 63, now up against No.6 seed Marcel Zimmermann in QF round

05-13-2011, 02:26 AM
Hopefully he can get past Zimmerman. The draw has opened up quite a bit outside James' quarter.

05-13-2011, 10:33 PM
Lemke into semis with a 62 76 win over Zimmerman. Now faces 22 year-old Columbian Alejandro Gonzalez, who has a solid games, so could be a challange. Go James

05-14-2011, 02:13 AM
Come on James hope he can take the tittle.

05-15-2011, 12:20 AM
James delivers two breadsticks to beat Gonzalez 6-1 6-1. In the final he plays the Dutch qualifier Antal Van Der Duim.

05-15-2011, 03:25 AM
Well done Lemmers. He sould have enough clay court game to beat van der Duim, who I believe has had some injury problems and is on the come back trail. Good luck in the final James.

05-16-2011, 01:28 AM
James has snuck into the qualifying draw for the French Open.:)

05-16-2011, 01:31 AM
Van Der Duim defeated James 6-2 6-4. Now has to wait to see if he can sneak a spot into the Qualies draw of the French Open.

05-16-2011, 01:34 AM
James has snuck into the qualifying draw for the French Open.:)

:woohoo: Hopefully he can get a nice draw.

05-16-2011, 05:46 AM
James must be the biggest mover in Aussie mens tennis I think. Good for him I hope he can do some real damage.

05-30-2011, 05:29 AM
James was playing a challenger on clay this week was the number 1 seed in quallies and lost in 3 sets to Mina. Disapointing as Mina had allready played a match that day and James had a bye the first round.

06-13-2011, 11:57 AM

James told me he was quitting after Marg River...think he has lost the passion for it, but who knows perhaps a few months away and he might come back fresh...

10-29-2012, 11:26 AM
No :sad:

10-29-2012, 09:15 PM
With the cost of tennis at Futures and Challenger level, especially Futures where you could potentially win the tournament and still not break even for the week, with travel, accommodation, stringing, equipment and coaching taken into acount (who can afford a coach) it is not surprising that players drop out.
Michael Look is also contemplating foregoing the game for greener pastures, and most probably is not the only other Aussie on the tour thinkin gthe same.
Prize money has been the same at Futures level for at least the last 8 years. Ridiculous.
Either you crack the top 100 quickly or it is a very hard road.

11-24-2012, 06:28 AM
