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.

Good win for Dan, he's through to the final in Taipei to face Kravchuk, who defeated Liam Broady in the semi.

Dan will go to 110 in live rankings and a win tomorrow would see him break the top 100.

Think he needs to be top 100 in either the week beginning 9th or the week beginning 16th May to make the Wimbledon main draw. Good chance he'd get in as an alternate if not, but if he isn't going to make the cut off then Wimbledon should really give him a WC.

He's entered for the Busan challenger this coming week and I think Seoul the following week. He's not playing on clay at all, focusing on hard court challengers in Asia before kicking off his grass season in Manchester.

A fine win. Some interesting plays by Daniel. Very good play. Congratulations on making world top 100. That might be enough to help him to a Wimbledon spot this year.

Well done Dan. Second title of the year. In to the top 100. Three more challengers in Asia and then onto grass at home.

Dan beat the ever-impressive Millman 6-3, 6-3 this morning to make it nine wins on the trot and make his second successive final.

This time a year ago Dan was #772 in the world. On Monday he will set a new career high of at least #86, and could go as high as #82 if he wins tomorrow (depending on how Kyle gets on in his final!).

Utterly remarkable. I'm so overjoyed to see him finally live up to his potential. He's always had top 50 calibre, and a year on from the lowest point in his career he's now broken the top 100 and continuing to surge upwards. It's a joy to see him in this sort of form.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Dan and Kyle making an impact on the ATP tour for the rest of the year.

Four Brits in the top 100 with our #1 a two-time grand slam champion - including Wimbledon - with another Brit the doubles #1 and also a grand slam champion. It's incredible how much British tennis has come on in the last five years.

Agree with all of that.  I see that Kyle leads in his final by a set at present. I rate Dan in finals. He is always so well prepared.

Unfortunately Evo's 9-match winning streak came to an end this morning, going down 4&4 in a rematch with Kravchuk.

So should rise to ~WR86 tomorrow, with Kyle around WR82.

Playing in the Seoul challenger next week.
