Turn Pro Christopher Eubanks (Big Man)

Eubanks should go pro.

He played well against Fritz and Donaldson.   Fritz is a power player and Donaldson was a more solid version of Fritz and Donaldson had more training on the red clay so you can tell he plays with more margin of error.    In the end, Harrison was too strong and crafty for Eubanks.   Also, it was clear that Eubanks was not “on his game” against Harrison.    In his match against Fritz and Donaldson,  Eubanks played well by dominating with power tennis.   Big serving and big forehands.   He is 6 foot 8.   He should be able to crack more aces and hit more serves that are unreturnable.   if he has the desire then he should go Pro,  If Karlovic and Isner can do it then Eubanks can do it.      It was a great display by Eubanks and I think he could win more by “going for broke more often”    Attacking when his opponent is serving and going for aces in his game similar to Karlovic and Isner.   Also, Eubanks has a good one-handed backhand and a good slice.   He should continue to get up to the net.

I was happy with how Eubanks played and I hope he will keep playing more tournaments.  He has the game right now to be around the top 60 or top 70 of the ATP and he is going to have to “grind” to pull his game up to the top 30!   But Isner and Karlovic could do it.

Christopher Eubanks Tall Lanky and Powerful

He lost to Radek Stepanek 62 62

This player is a beast.  Based on hours of watching footage I can say that Eubanks is a powerhouse!

It is amazing how you can watch the matches from the challenger tournaments and notice how good the players are.  How will they do on the main tour?

Noah Rubin has won main draw matches.  Rubin recently played Federer and held his own.

But there is big difference between winning points against pro players and winning entire matches!

And it is amazing to think that these players are 5 star or blue chip players who are the best in their state or college but on the pro tour they could be destroyed!

The margins in tennis are so slim.

Enjoy this match here and watch the shots at 8:35 and onward to see some NASTY forehands from Eubanks.
