Alta lost to Thatcher in Tib, was deep in almost every game, but inexperience won out. Also Thatcher (23) is on the upswing regularly winning rounds in futures lately. Alta is 16, 17 in a few days, and is 2 for 4 reaching reaching main draw in futures quallies. Very few guys without atp points are going to beat him these days. Also showing promise and will be getting ranked soon.
Yep, I watched those two matches and Lovedeep also. Not saying they don't have game, just how deep the pool is. That pack of players between 150 to 400 in the world is full of former great junior players. I really liked that Alta/Thatch match awesome points. Always been a fan of Mackie, lucky UCLA.
