Well, despite his ankle injury that forced him to skip the Australian Open, Carlos had an awesome start into the year.
Very quickly two titles, another two finals to start the year. AWESOME!
TMS winner, several TMS Quarterfinals, TMS semifinal.
Grand Slam Quarterfinal, Grand Slam fourth round (yes, he showed up at Wimbledon and I enjoyed him playing there, very good performance of Carlos).
So he is one of the best and did well in most of the events that mattered, Grand Slam, TMSs and that's why he easily qualified
Well done, Carlos!
