I think he meant if another player had withdrawn, Ram would have been LL too
If he stayed in town and signed in (which he did, obviously). Seems that people often forget this part of the lucky loser rule, the players must sign in on the alternate sheet on Monday morning, and again on Tuesday morning until all of the first round matches have been played. A lot of players leave town on Sunday night or Monday morning and give up the LL spot. This is what happened in LA a few years ago when Dent and Fish withdrew late on Tuesday afternoon, the only guys left in town were two players who had actually lost in the second, not final, round of qualies and they got into the main draw.
