Marton Fucsovics will face James Duckworth at 1st Round of Sydney ATP 250 Tournament. Sydney grown James will play against Hungarian Marton. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

Marton Fucsovics

Marton Fucsovics had a great 2018 year finished with first ATP title by winning the Geneva Open. Fucsovics have reached Australian Open fourth round were played with maestro Roger Federer and lost in 3 sets. M. Fucsovics current rank is 36 and that’s best result in his carrier. Hungarian have played in all Grand Slams last year, however, he showed his best in Australia at the beginning of the season.

For Marton this year started in ATP Tournament in Doha (Qatar) where he easily won in first round against Marius Copil and later lost to 1st ATP player Novak Djokovic in three sets giving fight to best ranked legend. Marton is a mixed player likely to play on Hardcourt same as on Clay. Player is fully ready for the start to play in new season and show his best tennis.

James Duckworth

James Duckwoth has returned last year after foot surgery. This player had lots of problems previously that because he couldn’t show his full potential last years, suddenly in 2016 he had elbow injury. James has already won Australian Open Wildcard Playoff as a result he already qualified to Australian open main tournament.

The most interested that J. Duckworth was born in Sydney, for this reason, fans should give him lots of confidence and support. This year Australian had only one match against Andy Murray at Brisbane ATP tournament and lost him in two sets. He played persistently by showing that in next tournaments he will try his best with players weaker than Murray. Hope to see James Duckworth fully ready to show his best tennis at home.


Players didn’t meet before. Both players are fully ready and prepared to give fight. None of them played last year at ATP Sydney tournament.
