He has progressed through Indian Wells Qualies with two straight set wins over Marach and then Van Der Merwe. The news gets even better for Matt with him getting one of the easier qualifier spots and drawing Zverev in the first round.
Yeah until Le Gosier last week Ilhan had been on an 11 match losing streak so it looked very good for Matt after the first set but a good fightback from Ilhan in the end. Perhaps the couple of wins in Le Gosier have given Ilhan his confidence back.
Ebden is seeded number 8 this week in South Africa and takes on a qualifier in the first round. Dustin Brown the number one seed is in his section and Ebden has beat him easily this year. Hoping for a good week after a bit of a lay off.
