Well done for him by qualifying!
He was for long time a forgotten man with no serious results at all and since having this good run in Indy, now he is even back in main draws of Grand Slams. These are the stories I like
Also worth to note: Other than Wimbledon, his previously last Grand Slam main draw appearance was US Open 2001
... it was about time I would say
Drawing Jenkins in the first round is certainly one of the better lots, better than a well established and experienced player IMO.
