Struff, the top seed, is out. If Dan could win the tourney, he could go up to about 106. The French Open cut-off is 104 with a couple of weeks to go.
I'm just wary of whether or not Dan can do that on clay. There are some players around him who will do much better on clay than he will. He could get direct entry through being around the top of the alternate list.
Dan lost in three sets yesterday, so that halts his ranking rise for now.
Not sure what his plans are for clay. As far as I can tell he isn't entered for any challengers on clay in the next 3 weeks. But he could have decided to take a step up and play qualies for main tour tournaments.
