Can Klein enter a challenger for next week still, or would he have to go through Qualies? He really needs to defend some points from last year.
Brydan could enter qualies in a challenger next week but it seems doubtful considering what he has done this week. He can't get a Secured Entry either because he didnt enter those challengers in the first place. Best chance would probably be to get given a wildcard.
With this first round victory there isn't as much to worry about his ranking because he gained 42 points this time last year at the end of Wimbledon and this year has he already gained 32 this week. It's two weeks later he has to worry about when he has another 34 points, 10 points the week after and then another 10 points the week after that. But if Brydan does not gain any points between now and then he will still be ranked about 210 which isn't too bad.
But then the following 2 weeks after that he has 74 points to defend so thats gonna be tough. But then he only has 38 points to defend for the rest of the year so thats not too bad. I'm really hoping he can keep his spot in the top 200.
