Thanks for updating, Edu.

After the event was TBC they announced it will be held in Melbourne. Following Burnie (Week 6) and a Future in Week 7, I guess the field will be rather weak here, dominated by Aussies and Asian players. At the same time, having this connection means the Future will probably be quite strong.

omfg Melbourne :rolleyes: sif not put it in Sydney Melbourne is shit.

Your only pissed cause you live in Sydney, and you cannot honestly tell me that Sydney is no more of a shithole than Melbourne. If we are going to put it anywhere put it on the Gold Coast in Queensland, the fastest growing region in Australia has never been exposed to mens tennis past a futures level. Queenslands obviously the future of sport in Australia more specificly South East Queensland.

Peta Pan
12-30-2008, 02:05 PM
:lol: :silly: Why on earth would South East Queensland be considered the future of sport in Australia when Melbourne is widely regarded as the sporting capital of the country (often the world)? Melbournians, in general, like sport and attend sporting events/matches more than any other state.

Carsten Ball should do well here.

I'm somehow not expecting him to show up here. He focuses more on US Challengers and I expect him to try his luck in qualies more and more, and this event is rather small anyway. If he does choose to play, he is of course a big favourite.

lol everyone seems to have a bias towards the city where they are from.

not true, I was born and raised in Melbourne. I've seen both Victorian and Queenaland tennis and Queensland looks like it has more potential at the moment and needs more exposure to mens profesional tennis.

I'm looking for the game to grow more in all parts of Australia not just Sydney and Melbourne.

Why is Todd Reid not playing in the challengers but is still playing in futures such as the one in Mildura where he is in the same position in the alt list as he would be if he were to enter these challengers? Plus there is only a small distance between Mildura and Melbourne.

Yang is the one to watch here.

I am expecting him to be in the MD. He has arrived in Melbourne a couple of days ago and he's been practising at the Macabi Tennis Centre to get acclimatised with the court and the weather.

After watched his brilliant performance last DC tie in the doubles, i think he's in the good shape physically and mentally. I hope he will do well in his first competitive tournament since January. His goal for 2009 is to break into Top 200.

Good Luck Yang! :worship:

Bernard Tomic has won his much anticipated semifinal clash with Brydan Klein to advance to to the final of the USD$50,000 Maccabi Men's Challenger at East Bentleigh today.

In the first meeting between the teenage colleagues, Tomic won a tightly contested first set 7-6(5) before going on to claim the second set 6-3 to close out the match in just over 90 minutes.

The 16 year old will now face either Marinko Matosevic or Colin Ebelthite in his debut appearance in a Challenger final on Sunday.

"I played one [a Challenger] in Croatia about a year ago and lost first round to a guy that was ranked about 200 and I had set point," he told tennis.com.au.

"I played another one in Burnie where I got to the quarters and the third one [Maccabi] I got to the final so hopefully I can win tomorrow."

Today's result brings to an end a run of 13 consecutive victories for Klein after he won titles in Burnie and Mildura in recent weeks.

Tomic said it was pleasing to beat a player in such good form.

"He's obviously had a lot of good results, won a Challenger, won a Future so he's been undefeated for a bit," he said.

"I knew what I had to do so I came out and I just did it."

"I enjoy playing good opponents and I slowed it down a bit when it came to crucial moments and in the end I think I played really well."

The West Australian Klein just won selection ahead of Tomic in the Optus Australian Davis Cup team for Thailand next week. Both were in the national squad for Chile last year.

After surviving a close three-set quarterfinal match on Friday, today Tomic secured an early break to race to a 4-2 lead in the first set.

Klein broke back to level the set at 4-4 before the set went to a tiebreak, which Tomic won 7-5.

In the second set, Tomic twice broke Klein's serve to open up a 4-1 lead.

Klein fought back to 3-4 before the Gold Coaster held serve and broke again to secure the win.

The men's singles final will commence at 12:30 pm tomorrow.

Unbelievable rise from Tomic, was in the 1300's this time last year and has jumped 384 spots since his 2nd round effort at Melbourne. Now currently at 382. Nadal was in the mid 500's at the same age as Bernard.

but u have to look at that ranking from a different perspective. Aus tennis is a lot weaker than spanish tennis. Nadal would have been playing his trade in spain. so i dont think this comparison is reflective of anything. I wanna see bernard compete overseas then we can make judgements.
