Yeah sorry got the wrong info. He won the tournament anyway, didn't drop a set the whole way. If you actually look at his last 5 tournaments he has made two challenger finals and won a future title which is not a bad effort.

He now heads to the Shingle Springs future tournament where he is the defending champion and would be a very strong favorite to win back to back future titles. So at this point in time he has 14 points left to gain and two tournaments (Shingle Springs/future and Winnetka/challenger) to gain 14 points which is very attainable. After that he is going to have to make the equivalent of two challenger finals in terms of points between then and October.

It's gonna be tough but as long as Carsten stays grounded and continues his results and most importantly stays focused he will be ranking inside the top 150 by the years end.

Carsten is a very talented player and as long as he stays mentally focused he can, as you say, be ranked inside the top 150. I wish him all the best between now and October and I'm confident he will climb the ranks.

He has decided to give the ATP qualies a crack at the LA Tennis Open. He has started promisingly by defeating Yoo 62 64. Plays Soeda in the next round and then will probably play Young in the final round if he gets that far. If the good version of Ball shows up you would think he will probably qualify.

Yeah hopefully the "Real" Ball turns up... not the one that can lose to players ranked 845 etc...

Just one match away from the MD after defeating Soeda 64 64. If he keeps up this form he should beat the Don who hasn't been in the best of form.

Good work Carsten... he should beat Young. About time Ball tested himself in qualies.

Cruised past the Don with a 63 60 victory. Hopefully he draws Dent or Kunitsyn although he still has a hope against Gicquel and Mayer.

Ball defeated Gicquel in straight sets. Now plays Tursunov in the second round. Would be great if he could put in another good performance.

Thanks for the pics Kai.

Carsten showing his potential. Hopefully he doesn't pull an epic tank.

Default Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Carsten has advanced to his first ever ATP quarterfinal with a win over Dimitry Tursunov. He next faces Isner who looks to be in good form but Carsten beat him last year around this time so Carsten definetly has a chance. If Carsten is able to get past Isner he'll face either Mardy Fish, Igor Kunitsyn, Leonardo Mayer or he might even play the Gooch! Should Carsten make the semis here it would be very unlikely he will fall out of the top 200 for the rest of the year.

Should be a good US summer for Carsten and I think he might get the US Open wildcard again this year for the second consecutive year.

Excellent result for Mr. Ball. He can beat Isner when he is confident.
