It's OK to praise him when things are seemingly going well, but his true test will be when things start to go badly.
I think Querrey and Haas are in the top 30. But anyway, you said your piece about "top 30 at best" as if we had any reason to believe Gulbis will stay on this level. I don't think so, I think he will go higher the way he's been going higher and higher since the start of the season. He lost some matches in challengers, he definitely wasn't playing top 30 level tennis there but now he is closer to that. With more wins, more matches and more confidence his level should be going up.
