Amazing run and win against the number 1 seed. He will now snatch the number 2 Aussie '92 boys spot back from Ben Mitchell (will be official next Monday not this one). A win in the final would see him move to about 355 and loss would see him at about 380. 350 is nearly high enough to make some of the recent challenger cut offs, probably needs to win just one more 15k future (would put him at about 310) and would definitely have a chance at making challenger cut offs. Although with the way he is heading he might make the US Open qualifying cut off.
I'm getting ahead of myself though but I really hope James and Ben continue this little battle for at least one more tournament after this. Either or both will probably be in head over to China soon as an orange boy I would imagine even though they have done it before. James is also entered in an Italian future next week too but I wouldn't be surprised if he pulled out. I'm hoping he plays because he is obviously good enough to go deep amongst basically the same field but I am also kind of hoping he pulls out because I don't want him to burn out.
