mathias bourgue has won 4 consecutive futures title on clay late weeks, by dropping only 3 sets in 20 matches total

quite a good achievement for the french, should get into top 300 in the rankings soon!

Re: Mathias Bourgue(94) wins 4 futures in a row!

I saw him last year. He was on futures in Bourgas - my home town. He reached the final and lost to Tihomir Grozdanov. Pretty decent future ahead of him :) I also saw his match preparation in the sea garden and I wished him good luck. He seemed really surprised that someone knows him :wavey:

Re: Mathias Bourgue(94) wins 4 futures in a row!

No disrespect but the futures he's winning right now are pretty week. Even though i saw him in a challenger in South America recently where he really played well and he also managed to win two qualifying rounds in Roland Garros so definetly he has some game. The problem for me is why isn't he making the step to the challenger tour playing more challenger tournaments and give up on futures already? He's 20 years old, if he wants to be a prospect he should start playing challengers

Re: Mathias Bourgue(94) wins 4 futures in a row!

yeah he lost 36 76 63 to lorenzi in qualifying round in roland garros this year. he is improving a lot...i ve seen him in 2010 or 2011 in a future and he was so crazy, and then after a couple of years he was more calm and focused. he has big groundstrokes

Re: Mathias Bourgue(94) wins 4 futures in a row!

I don't like how he choses to play only in very weak futures he was already vulturing some futures in Asia last year. He is good from what I saw in the SA challengers but his scheduling shows how he wants to rise in the rankings. When he played a CH in Romania he lost to Cacic so there's nothing to be excited about in these 4 tournament wins.

Only 1 top 500 win (#433) in that run as far as I can see, but good on him nonetheless.

Definitely not the toughest of events, but he also handed out a lot of bagels and breadsticks along the way, even in later rounds. Great consistency :yeah:

Lost to Cacic in three close sets. Cacic went on to reach the QF and a SF in 2/3 Challengers he played after that.

We can choose to be pessimists, but this is a great run.

He tried earlier this year to play some challengers, but he was still just below that level.
With this good run in Futures, I think it'll be the time for him to retry ;)

Re: Mathias Bourgue(94) wins 4 futures in a row!

Well if he is top 300 now, he should have challenger direct entry so he should definitely try to get himself at least into top 250 by end of season to make AO qualies. 4 futures wins in a row, no matter how much vulturing is done, is very good for 20 years old

pretty useless though, I mean good for him but he may create a mental block for himself if he doesn't step up to the plate and schedule to play more Challengers rather than Futures

Buddy, it's better if you write 1994 or '94. Like some people here, I also thought that he's 94 years old. :lol:
