Matt Ebden will be out to continue his resurgence in form this week by qualifying for the US Open.
Ebden has seen his ranking rise from outside 300 earlier in 2015 to a year high of 129, and if he can make the main draw he will climb back inside the top 100.
After overcoming 18 months of niggling injuries, the West Australian has won twice on the Challenger circuit this year and made the second round at Wimbledon.
His first opponent at Flushing Meadows will be 17 year old American Michael Mmoh.
On paper it looks a nice draw, however Mmoh has a huge game and is currently ranked the third best junior in the world.
The highest ranked player on Ebden’s side of the draw is 8th seed Dusan Lajovic who is currently ranked at 107 in the world with a career high of 57.
If Ebden makes the main draw he will be aiming to improve on his best efforts at the Open, where he made the second round in both 2012 and 2014.
