Re: Aussies in Challengers and Futures

Whittington beats Zhe Li 6-1 7-6(3) to make the final against Purcell. I wonder if he remember what it feels like to lose? Tomorrow he will be going for his 20th straight win and four titles in a row. A win will get him into the top 200 as well. Whittington would have to be our most improved this year, I certainly didn't see him making this kind of breakthrough in the rankings

Max Purcell has done his bit easily getting to the final. 6/3 6/4. Bit of a wobble leading 5/0 in the second but now will be showered and ready to watch the Whittington match.

Re: Aussies in Challengers and Futures

Yes, it's certainly been a breakthrough week for Max Purcell, which is pleasing - he's part of the same cohort as Oliver Anderson and the slightly younger Alex De Minaur, but has attracted very little buzz in comparison to either of them.

Whittington's progress this year has indeed been excellent. He made a bit of a splash in doubles with the (sadly retired?) Alex Bolt, but his singles ranking was languishing in the 400s at the start of this year, and he has now almost made it into the Top 200 under the radar. I would say he's a dead cert to play USO qualies now, and if he can maintain the form would definitely have one of the best credentials for an AO wildcard for 2017. Does need to actually win a Challenger, though...and Zhe Li can be tough on his day...

Andrew Whittington and Max Purcell both won their quarter final matches and both march into the semi finals. Chance for an all Aussie final. I am really impressed by Andrew Whittington this year. He seems to following Jordan Thompson into the upper echelons. Great to see this.

In Binghamton:
Can Jipper can win two or more in a row for a change?
In the 2nd round against Yank Mitchell Kreuger, he recovers from a break down to get from 4-5 to 5-5, then drops serve lose the first set 5-7. Same in the second, JP recovers from a breakdown to take the set to the breaker but loses a close breaker 67(5), to bow out of the singles. Answer: Nope - can't win two in a row, yet... but at least he is winning a match...
Still alive in the doubles, playing with Matty Reid.

In Gimcheon:
Andrew Whittington wins his second round clash against Temur Ismailov (ATP525) 76(4) 20 retired. The No.6 seed Whitts now faces a tougher test against Jap Takuto Niki (ATP572) who knocked off the No.1 seed Ze Zhang in straight sets. Niki is on form, but a good chance for Whitts to rise to the occasion and make the semis.
Max Purcell also to play the QF round, facing Chinese Taipei's Tsung-Hua Yang (ATP337), who beat the No.8 seed Barrientos in the first round.

In Gimcheon:
Max Purcell plays his second round match, against 28 year-old Jap Kento Takeuchi (ATP502), and records another solid win, 61 26 63, to advance to the quarter finals.
Good stuff Max

In Binghamton:
JP wins a close one against Brit Liam Broady, after dropping the 1st set 7-4 int he breaker, he wins the next two 64 75 to progress. Let's hope Jipper can win two or more in a row for a change. Needs to as his ranking has taken a hit.
Matt Reid's woes continue as he loses 1st round to wild card Yank Thai-son Kwiatkowski 64 and 63.
And father Ben Mitchell goes down to American Nicolas Meister 63 76(3).
Ex-Oz bad boy Pom Bryden Klein does the whole field a favour by knocking out the No.1 seed Frances rising star teenager Quentin Halys (ATP140) 63 67(5) 63
Alex Vucic still to play Ecuadorian Emilio Gomez (ATP321)

In Gimcheon:
Victorian Andrew Whittington records a businessman like win over unranked wild-card 15 year-old Korean Uisung Park 63 60 - nice draw and Whitts got on with it.
Max Purcell still to play (2nd round) against 28 year-old Jap Kento Takeuchi (ATP502). Good luck Max

Alex Vukic qualifies for the second Challenger in consecutive weeks, this time in Binghamton.
Obviously playing very well, college tennis definitely agreeing with him.

Whittington makes it back to back to back in Hong Kong, winning his sixth title for the year!

Polmans is into the final in Zimbabwe and is also going for three in a row

Re: Aussies in Challengers and Futures

This week Whittington won his fifth title of the year, going back to back in Hong Kong. His ranking is now approaching the top 250.

Meanwhile there is an all-Australian final in Mozambique of all places. Jeremy Beale, who did well in Africa last year off memory, plays Marc Polmans, who won in Mozambique last week.
