Re: James Duckworth Cheering Thread
Really hoping the Duck can get the title this week. Would be his fifth final in a row if he is able to get past the number 6 seed in the semis. A win this week would see him move to around 327, runner up would see him move to around 346 and a semifinal loss would see him move to around 361. A win this week would see him be about 16 points out of the top 300. He is getting closer and closer to that elusive top 300 and a chance to start making challenger entry cut offs.
It has been such a rapid rise from the Duck, he started the year at 741 and now is potentially one week from a spot in the top 300. I do wonder if his success on European clay will transfer on to the challenger circuit because he could become a great option for our Davis Cup team when we have an away tie on clay. I guess we'll see but I'd love to see him get a win this week and good result in the next few weeks so he cracks the top 300. Good luck Duckie, still lots of hard work to do.
