As expected Matt gets through his first round match without any huge issues with a 7-5 6-3 win over Tosihide Matsui. Next up is Danai Udomchoke who is coming into this tournament after winning two Thai Futures. Matt has been listed as a very slight favourite for this match.
Not a great result. He is entered for the Cremona 30k hardcourt challenger in Italy next week. He is the 4th highest ranked player on the entry list at the moment so hopefully he can put in a good showing.
Won his first round at Cremona with a 6-4 6-4 win over the qualifier Pierre-Ludovic Duclos. Matt was only serving at 56% but it must have been effective when it was going in as he won 26 point from 28 first serves. Next up is the winner of Jan-Lennard Struff and Daniel Cox.
Nice photo - Matt got up against Cox 62 75. Had a mid-set lapse in 2nd set - was a break up 31 and lost 4 games in a row to go 35 down, Cox failed to serve out the set and Ebden recovered, wining 4 in a row himself to close out the match.
