R1: Benjamin MITCHELL (AUS) (3) defeated Denes LUKACS (HUN) 6-4 6-2
R2: Benjamin MITCHELL (AUS) (3) defeated Mark FYNN (ZIM) 6-7(2) 6-2 6-4
QF: Lewis BURTON (GBR) defeated Benjamin MITCHELL (AUS) (3) 1-6 6-1 7-6(8)
Looks like he wasn't in great form. Burton with James Marsalek also knocked Ben and Michael Look out of the doubles tournament. Ben is entered for another future in Durban next week where once again it looks like he will be the third seed.
I know people aren't going to like it but I am going to post Ben's potential ranking movement after RG because I feel the potential movement is significant enough.
Seeing as he is already in the second he will have already gained 4 points regardless of the rest of his results so here it is:
round 2 - 418
QF - 414
SF - 407
(this is where it gets interesting)
F - 394
W - 367
A potential move into the top 400 is massive and would mean given the correct scheduling he could start to gain direct acceptance into challengers. Not to get ahead of myself though because Benny would need to play really well to even just make the final this week. Does anyone know where/if he is playing next week?
