He should do but he's going to have to defend some of his results from this time last year to do so - he's in the pack of 4 or 5 players whose qualification is still very uncertain. He's going to have to do well in Madrid, which is his first tournament I think - so he's not giving himself many chances.
He has only played one tournament that is not a master's event or GS, he is in entry list for Tokio, Vienna and Basel, I guess depending on his results he will play some of those tournaments. I woud think at least 2 if he does well in madrid.
