The spots for qualifiers are in decent places, so if Gulbis gets through Qualifying he could gain a fair few ranking points.
Yes there are some good qualifiers here in Delray Beach, Gulbis played well against Berdych last week in Marseille and today got an easy win so he can make a good run here. This year he is focused so it will be good for the tennis fans if he gains ranking points to have better chances to make good tournaments. And apart from Ernest we find interesting players like Berankis, Smyczek, Dancevic, etc.
And of course Donald Young, the main favourite to win this tournament as ProdigyEng points.A shame that Dustin Brown lost today in qualifiying first round
