In the form of his life and boasting a new-found steely resolve, Matt Ebden says he's ready to continue his Wimbledon adventure into the second week.
The 30-year-old West Australian will break into the top 50 after reaching the third round of a grand slam for the first time.
He faces experienced Frenchman Gilles Simon on Saturday and victory would set up a clash with world No.4 Juan Martin del Potro or Gallic giant Benoit Paire for a place in the quarter-finals.
Ebden made the bold claim last week that he can win Wimbledon and has so far backed up those words with actions
He brushed aside Belgian world No.9 David Goffin for his first-ever win against a top-10 player in the opening round and followed it up with comfortable victory over French qualifier Stephane Robert.
Simon, a quarter-finalist in 2015, will present a much tougher test than his compatriot, but Ebden heads into the match having won both of their previous encounters.
"They were both close matches I won against him," he said.
"He'a quality player. He's been around a long time, he's almost as good as anyone around on grass..
"But I am, too, playing the level I am over the last six weeks.
"But I have to be really well prepared, sharpen up on a few things and be ready to go on Saturday."
After several years of being in and around the lower reaches of the top 100, Ebden's new positive approach to tennis is paying dividends.
His goal is to ensure he is seeded for future grand slams by climbing up from 51 and into the world's top 32 for the US Open before the majors revert to top-16 seedings in 2019.
"That's been the goal since I started when I was 23. I know it's within me," Ebden said.
"I just didn't have the consistency that I've had over the last 12 months.
"I am not out here to be playing small tournaments around the world.
"It's excites me playing the best guys on the biggest stages.
"The slams are in four of greatest cities in the world: Melbourne, London, New York, Paris. How good is that?
"I love what I do."
