In his first Challenger QF in Rimouski . Up to a career high ranking of 243 . A bit disappointed that he is playing two 10ks after this in Bahrain and Quatar . Should be number 1 seed for one and number 2 seed for the other .
I'm guessing it was long pre-planned, and he was banking on some cheap points to guarantee top 250 for Wimbledon (also he was defending 12 points from last years Qatar trip). Of course winning a couple of rounds in Canada meant that 250 is locked up now, so I don't expect him to play any futures after this for a while yet.
