See what you mean about 2012 - injury presumably? I was surprised by his ranking, thought he'd be higher after what I'd read these last three months, but obviously gaining points is hard work at that level.
Wonder if he'll drop one of his names!
Aye I think so. I guess 18 points doesn't mean much when you hit the top 300. If you check his ranking history he started the year 700 odd, rose quickly with each tournament win then slowed down as he got into the 300s. Will need to step up back to Challenger level now to really sustain his progress back to the top 150, but qualifying for ATP events won't harm! Good win against Serra in FQR.
The confidence and winning feeling from all those Futures will hopefully leave him in good stead. I hope to see him break the top 100 this year.
