Benneteau's results since Winston-Salem last year have been very good. He's gone from 113 to almost top 30 in six months.
It was a bit crazy. He had signed up to play the Istanbul Challenger when his rank was 100+. But he improved way too quickly and was called for Davis Cup duty that week. I was sad that I couldn't get to watch him play. I'm glad he's almost top 30 now but now he's just too good he'll never play Istanbul Ch.
His good friend Mahut actually played Istanbul and lost 1st round. He was kind of famous in Turkey because of the Wimbledon nightmare match with Isner.
I hope he wins something this year.
