Re: Frederico Gil
Fred lost in R1 of Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires and as of right now, his provisional is #84. He's in the MD of Indian Wells, as he lost in the final round of qualifying but received a LL position. He plays another qualifier, Rhyne Williams, in the first round, so a win is absolutely necessary. After Indian Wells, Fred is playing the Dallas challenger in Texas, then Miami qualifying. He'll need to continue to win as many matches as possible as a buffer for the Monte Carlo points that will drop.
Qualifying at both Roland Garros and Wimbledon is a real possibility at this point, however Fred has done enough to put himself in position to regain a top 100 spot during the summer, where he doesn't defend much, and make the USO MD and AO MD in 2013. It's all up to Fred to continue to have the decent season he's had and cut out all bad losses.
