After two unsuccessful tournaments Mark has made the final in the Mexican future this week. A win would see him jump to around 530 in the world and ahead of Jason Kubler. He has also entered next weeks future and should be seeded similar to what he was this week. He will then return to Australia for the ATP tournaments then challengers then futures. I guess he just needs to stay consistant and continue to make semifinals and finals where he plays and he will be in the top 300 in no time.
Mark won the final 5-7 6-2 6-0. His second futures title for the year and it would seem he is really started to get the hang of things on the pro tour now. Hoping for a strong result from him this week too, another win would see him close to the top 400 and a few point behind Matt Reid.
Well done Mark. He has withdrawn from this week's Mexican Future which is an indicator he will be playing the WC Playoff. He hasn't been officially confirmed but it would be a huge surprise if he wasn't awarded one of the 8 remaining wildcards.
Mark playing in a Guatemalan 10k future tournament this week. He is seeded sixth and won his first round against the Argentinian Qualifier Julian Busch 63 63. Net up is Matteo Volante who is in here using his protected ranking but has been in woeful form. Hopefully Mark can make the quarters.

Who knows . Saville is going to be a good player. He probably had a case to receive one ahead of Verryth but I don't think Banes did. Verryth is less than a year older than him and is ranked in the 500's whilst Banes is ranked outside the top 1000. The funniest thing though from the wildcards was Ball receiving a MD Wildcard but Feeney beat him in straight sets at the Wildcard Playoff a month earlier and failed to receive a QWC. Not saying Feeney should have got one but why did Ball get a MD WC?
