Hope not, he can request a late start so wouldn't have to play until Wednesday possibly.

Great win, happy his hard work is paying off.

Bring on the scotsman!!

A solid tie-break in a nerve-wracking tight situation. Missed out on 3 match points at 6-5, 7-6 and 8-7, two on Simon's serve and one on his own and still kept going, winning the match on his serve at 9-8. Good mental toughness, great temperament.
Deserved the win. Well done Matt. Sets up his next year nicely.
Hope his match against the Scotsman is televised.
Anybody know if he has a coach with him?

Ebden scheduled fourth match on Stadium Court, not b4 8pm (Shanghai time), so 11pm EST in Oz.
Should be on ESPN (508 or 509 of FOX). Any live-streaming?
Gonna watch this one. Hope Ebden can match it with the Scots lad.

Ebden is playing very high intelligent tennis, like a top 20 at least.

And a better return. Even when he has plenty of time, he ends up hitting the 2nd serves into the net or long.

Default Re: Matthew Ebden

Since no one else has posted it I figured I would. Matt lost to Andy Murray 6-3 6-2. Played very average at times and missed some really easy shots that he should have made at crucial times in the match. The only problem I can see with his game is that his style of play IMO can only get him so far. For example I can't see him ever being top 30. He will probably stay around the 60-80 mark for a while but at this point with Bernard Tomic leading the charge a second player around the 60-80 mark is really all we need. Ideally we would like Ebden to stay in the top 100 for the next year or two while guys like Ben Mitchell and James Duckworth come through and hopefully can break into the top 20 or so that we have a really strong amount of young male players in two years time with Hewitt's retirement pending.

I wouldn't say it if it weren't true because I do like Ebden but he just doesn't have the game to get any higher than say 40 or 50 in the world and that is at his absolute best. We can all be happy now though because it has been a long time since we have had to young guys in the top 100.

Nice week for him His forehand is good, bit unreliable on the defensive but it's okay. His net play was what really impressed me. Backhand could get better, second serve could get better, first serve placement even... but he didn't embarrass himself out there. Huge week for him and congrats

Good match from Ebden. His game has improved remarkably, he is hitting with more pace and getting forward well. Did well to stay with Murray at first. His first serve deserted him for awhile, which made it hard as Murray was all over Ebden's second serve. A great tournament for him. The challenge will be to stay at this level week after week.
Well done Matt.

Ebden graduated from high school with tertiary entrance score of 98.5 That's massive! He must be a genius or a supremely hard worker. All this while playing tennis too
