Good to see Nick in the final of the Darwin futures tournament. Will take on Isaac Frost in the final. It will be interesting to see what happens to Nick in the way of wildcards for the Australian summer if he goes on a great run of form assuming he has switched back to Australia.
I saw Isaac play a little in Darwin. He beat Klein in a tough 3-setter and seemed composed and playing well despite a few antics from Brydan. He's tall and strong and still only 21. There might be a bit of potential.
As for Nick, surely his crazy year will be a liability when it comes to TA giving out wildcards. I kinda like him though - seems like he doesn't take the tennis world too seriously which might irk a few in the establishment...
Nick made the semis of another Australian futures tournament this week before losing to the eventual champion, Yasutaka Uchiyama in a close three setter. He is probably not playing his best tennis at the moment but it is good to see him in some sort of form after the year he has had.
