Could be an interesting year for him next year.
Never say 'never', but it will be extremely difficult.
Auckland's career has reached a point where he must make a few very important decisions. At this moment, his doubles game has reached a stage where he can play Tour matches very regularly but his singles game is still Challenger standard.
So he will need to make a decision every single week - "Will I play Tour doubles? Or will I play in Challengers, where I'll have a good chance in doing well in singles?"
Because at this moment, his singles ranking means that he will have little chance of qualifying for Tour events.
