keeps the good form going with a 6-0 6-3 win over Shiga... he only lost 5 points in the first set the third seed Zhang has pulled out so now Matt will play Uchiyama or a lucky loser next round... good chance to make a challenger quarter final overseas!

Things keep falling into place for Matty. Hope he can take advantage of this little opening...

Yes! 4th consecutive Challenger quarter-final (or better). Plays 8th seed Dominik Meffert next in Kyoto. One win away from the top 200.

Yep - following that stat as well. Just a smidgen away from Top 200. Who would have thought at the beginning of the year. Definitely will go top 200 this year, is well placed points wise in the front of the year (has very little to defend - only 30 points to end June).
Go Matt Barton - play fearless tennis.

On a similar note - a lot of the lesser ranked Aussies (not top 120) are well placed to progress well in the first half of the year, with few points to defend:
Millman - 22pts until May, then a crunch 60pts mid May, but very little (14 pts) from then to September
Barton - 30 pts until end June
Reid - 10 pts until July
Jones - O pts until June
Feeney - 1 pt until end July
Kyrgios - 3 pts until August, then not much after
Bolt - 6 pts until Junes
Saville - 7 pts until mid May
Klein - 12 pts until May (but 39 pts to end May and another 18 in June)

So Jones and Fenney have least points to defend the remaining half of the year (due to injuries last year most probably) - now need the results.

Groth has the most to defend - 98 to end May, with
Duckworth (56 pts) and Smith (58 pts) to end May

Of the top 120:
Hewitt - 0 pts to Mid Jul, then 150 in July and 70 in early Aug
Mato- 41 pts in Mar then another 157 in May and more in June (93)
Bernie - 100 pts to May, 120 in May and 45 in June
Ebden - 106 this tournament, 10 in April, then 32 in June (most of those 10 pointers for 1st round loss in Master's events !!)
so Hewitt best placed here - just needs to win some matches.

Great bunch of stats there cheers.

So Saville hasn't been in a great patch lately but with a few lucky results and some runs he should see himself inside the top 300 for RG, same with Bolty with only 6 to defend he could really do well in the 2 upcoming Aus futures being the 3rd seed at the first one. I'd put my money on him to be in the RG qualifying list as probably an alternate but right up the top. Jones is playing some great tennis at the moment so he really should return to the top 250 if not better before his points start coming on, Millman soon to be top 150??? And Barton I think will be similar but slightly behind. Klein mmm not in really any great form apart from winning the doubles title last week so hopefully that sparks the kid up to get some good results. Reid and Feeney just chugging along under the radar both would be great to see in Wimbledon and RG qualifying.

Injury free Groth should be able to defend most of not all of those points, Duckworth is going to be the one in that group to drop in my opinion down the rankings a little. But I hope he proves me wrong and can start to find some consistent wins.

Ebden hopefully can at least make the second round here at Indian Wells you'd think anyway...

Hewitt top 50 here he comes...

Matosevic did well in Memphis to defend those points the week after in Delray Beach, maybe a win or two at IW see him up again and then hope he can play well on the dirt.

Tomic the man great win this morning, please back it up against Gasquet then knock out that spud Janowicz. I'm tipping him to be seeded at Roland Garros so don't let me down Bernie.

So who else thinks everyone of these players RustyOz has mentioned will at least play either qualies in the next two slams? All very much should, cannot wait to see a huge bunch of Aussies over seas in events like that willing one another along to get the wins and all try to better each others results.

Barton gets great win over 8th seed Meffert 3-6 6-3 6-4. Wouldn't have a clue about the stats seen as my live scoring wasn't working but at least he won, lets hope Millman gets up in his clash and they meet one another in the semis.

They are in opposite halves of the draw.

Both won so one win each away from an all aussie final

If he loses his next match he would still be provisionally ranked at 143.

Matt into top 200 (me thinks) - with much much more to come this year.
Needs to serve off his face next match and get to his 2nd Challenger final of the year,
