If you don't mind me saying, JCF earned more points being the RU in Barcelona than the Houston winner. Besides, challenging himself playing against the top clay courters is the only way he can get himself up to top form to prepare for Roland Garros.
Estoril is quite a strong field for a small tournament. Winning it won't be easy. I'll be happy if he wins, but I'm fine if he loses early and get some rest, in case he gets a WC in Rome, he will have the energy to go.
