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...

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.

Matty wins Traralgon without dropping a set. Expected.

Close to top 100 now, stoked for him!!

Re: Matthew Ebden

This current Challenger in Traralgon is Matty's big chance to vault up towards the Top 100 - he's far and away the top ranked player there, and if he can go all the way will be knocking right on the door with 3 or 4 tournaments to go. It's also the last "free" tournament he has...from now on, he'll need to get to at least the second round of each event to make any gains.

Bit of a test in the QF though, with Zhe Li, who has had a good formline during this Aussie season.

Matt qualifies for the 500 in Tokyo!

Really good performance against Go Soeda today, started off in control, however lost concentration, Soeda won the second and led 3-0 in the third... And then Matt won 6 in a row

Very good news to qualify for a 500, beating two seeds in Soeda and Basilashvili. Hopefully he gets the spot with the 2 Qualifies playing, extra points of making R16 would be awesome. AO MD looks quite likely at this point...

Re: Matthew Ebden

Thats very out of character for him. If he just knuckles down for a few weeks he will make MD directly for Aus Open.

Re: Matthew Ebden

did anyone else watch Matt play tonight in Kaoshing against Jimmy Wang? He appeared not to be trying in the third set at all. It was ridiculous to say the least........

... in straight sets 46 26 46, against Grigor Dimitrov.

Re: Matthew Ebden

As expected, goes down...

Re: Matthew Ebden

AussieAdz is right - everyone except the wild cards gets 10 points for the first round in a Slam or Masters, so qualifiers get an extra 10 on top of their 25 for a total of 35 points.

That still puts Ebden slightly behind his current ranking because he's defending 45, as has been noted.

On the plus side, he doesn't have anything else to defend for the rest of the year.
Not sure you get those 10 points if you lose 1st round as a qualifier. I think you only get your 25 points for qualifying. The 10 points is a reward for being a direct entry via your ranking. I clould be wrong? Let's check after the event.
