Re: Matthew Ebden

Any updates on Matt? All i can see on his social media is him wishing players good luck at tournaments he played in...

Re: Matthew Ebden

Re: Matthew Ebden

You can only hear crickets in this forum. When the F is Matt coming back? He did well to get back up to the cusp of top 100 only to be winless the first 4 months of the year & not looking good for the rest.

That's certainly a compelling reason as to why so many in that 90-120 ranking band enter every ATP event they possibly can - but Ebden attracts such scorn because he takes it to ridiculous extremes!

Most players recognise that dropping down to compete in Challengers is necessary to hold their ranking at that fringe ATP level. Matty never does...he just enters all these ATP events, loses in the first round of almost all of them, and then moans about travelling to all these far flung places to try and climb back up.

I'm sure he'll retire having earned a decent living thanks to that policy; but surely you'd rather be a consistent presence and not a 6 month wonder?

Re: Matthew Ebden

We do realise there is more to this decision than just ranking right?

Matt Barton made $760 by losing in the second round of New Delhi today. Matt Ebden made $4935 by losing in the first round to Jeremy Chardy.

So stupid, deserves to fall out of the top 200.

Re: Matthew Ebden

And in Delray Beach, Ebden can't deal with a rare bad draw, going down in a quick fire 26 16 to No.5 seed Jeremy Chardy (ATP30). Served at below 50%, may have some sort of niggling injury?

Re: Matthew Ebden

Strange first round match for Ebden in Toyota Challenger this week... against fellow Aussie Greg Jones, making a rare appearance after multiple injuries have allowed him to play only a handful of matches this year. Matt went a break-up to lead 4-2, then allowed Jones to peg him back to 4-4. First set went to the breaker, and Jones got the early break to lead 2-1, then when Jones held well and broke Matt again to lead 5-1, Matt started limping and tanked the next two points to hand the tie-break to Jones.
After a short MTO during the set break, Matt came back, stretching out his leg and doing slow squats, then just kept the points short, slapping serves and winners - then after saving two break points to get to 3-2 up, he retired injured.

Hopefully it is not serious, but at least it is the last tournament of the year and he has plenty of time now to recover.

Wonder how he would have gone if Jones had not broken back and Matt had won the first set...

Re: Matthew Ebden

Matt keeps his chances of a MD berth in the Oz Open alive, with a solid 61 retired injured win against Croatian Franko Skugor in the 2nd round of Yokohama. Seeded 2, Ebden now matches it with Japanese Yuichi Sugita, the No.6 seed.
Ebden looking good so far.
