he will have a protected ranking in 8 tournaments where he wants!
That's good news!
So far, he's wanted:
3. San Jose
5. Delray Beach
6. Indian Wells
Depending how he's feeling after IW, I assume he'll choose (7) Miami and (8) Monte Carlo
Wow!!! Since the beginning of the year, our man has gone from world no. 259 to world no. 90 in 8 weeks!!! joy joy
