He lost in the second qualifying round to Guillermo García López of Spain 2-6, 6-7(3). In November 2008, Kyu Tae Im of Korea defeated him 6-7(3), 1-6 in the final of the Malaysia F2 event. This was the second time he had made a final in over three years. In April 2009, Statham won his first tournament at Australia F3. He defeated Australian Greg Jones 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the final. In his next tournament, Australia F4, he continued his great form before losing in the final to Greg Jones 5-7, 6-7(6). His form continued in his next tournament, in Egypt F7, by winning his second title. He defeated Jean-Noel Insausti of France in the final 7-5, 6-2. He made it four finals in a row in his next tournament; Egypt F8. He lost to Karim Maamoun of Egypt in the final 2-6, 2-6.

In October 2009, Statham won another Futures title at Thailand F4. He defeated Roman Jebavý of the Czech Republic 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 in the final. He also won the Vietnam F1 title in the same month, defeating Amir Weintraub of Israel 6-7(4), 7-6(4), 6-1 in the final. In October 2010, Statham was the only New Zealand representative in the Men's Singles at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and was the sixth seed. He won his first round against Haydn Lewis of Barbados 6-2, 6-1. He also won his second round match with Colin Fleming of Scotland when Fleming retired after Statham won the first set 6-4.
