Murray's not a fan of Greg either, is he?

Wonder if Kyle will train with him again this winter. I wonder if that was on his mind when he parted ways with Greg...

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Kyle beat former Wimbledon junior semi-finalist and #3 Kaichi Uchida 5&3 in the second round, and this morning beat the WR191 Zhang Ze 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 to make his first challenger semi-final since July.

Faces the 2nd seed Go Soeda in the semis. Kyle will finally take out his CH he set back in the summer and is right on the brink of the top 200. A win would see him right behind Liam.

If he makes the final, he'll be up to about 190. If he wins it, about 175 - but he'd probs facing Millman, who's on fire at the mo.

In other news, Kyle has made the final after dropping the first set to Soeda! As expected, he'll play Millman in the final. Kyle will now be inside the top 200.

That win means that he will the 2nd Brit this century (after Andy) to make the ATP top 200 in singles, whilst still a teenager!

A great achievement. Kyle and Liam Broady are seriously threatening James Ward for a Davis Cup singles spot in March. It's a nice carrot.

This is Kyle's first challenger final. Smile Unfortunately he plays the same guy who last beat a Brit in a challenger final.

In-fact, there is a bit of a theme here - last four challenger finals for Brits are:

Edmund vs Millman (AUS) tbc
Ward vs Millman (AUS) L
Broady vs Duckworth (AUS) L
Ward vs Duckworth (AUS) L

And the last Brit to actually win a challenger? James Ward vs James Duckworth (AUS).

So Kyle is up against it. But this late surge means he'll make it four Brits in the top 200 (and with Evo hopefully fit again next season, maybe he could make it five...) with Kyle just 6 points shy of Liam, just outside the top 190.

Yep, up to 191 - three spots behind Liam. Nice one.

Quite incredible really that after taking two completely different routes through this year they both end up within 3 points of each year.

Fantastic year from both. Just need Oli Golding to return now and we'll have the hat-trick of youngsters pushing each other.

I started following juniors the year Liam made the Wimbledon final, and at that time it was he, Oli (who then won the USO juniors) and Kyle (who made the USO semis at 16, then won his first Futures just a year later) who were all flying the flag for British tennis in the juniors (along with George Morgan who has sadly struggled, and Luke Bambridge who is right on the brink of the top 500). It's so good to see Liam and Kyle having transitioned to the main tour and still, somehow, neck and neck. It's been great to watch them progress from top 10 juniors to top 200 professionals in the intervening three years. Long may it continue.

Worth nothing that Kyle took more games (8) off Millman than anyone else in the last two weeks. He's also second in that list with 7 from last week!
