I have made it through to the Quarter Finals of the ATP Challenger here in Sydney, luckily receiving a Lucky Loser spot into the Main Draw.

I lost my final round in Qualifying. Then early Wednesday morning I got a call that there had been a withdrawal from the Main Draw and I made the cut as the 1st Lucky Loser spot. I played the first round of Main Draw against Rubin Statham (NZ) and got through with the win.

I played the Second Round Main Draw yesterday Wednesday 1 November and won through 6-2 6-3

I now play the Quarter Finals on Friday 3 November, 2023 against seeded player fellow Aussie Marc Polmans.

The schedule for Friday won’t become available until late Thursday night.
