With all the points the other Spaniards have to defend for the rest of the year, he could easily be the 2nd best Spaniard by the end of the year.
I'm curious to see how many points other players are going to be losing this week. The rankings on the 22nd will be the ones used to determine seeds for the USO. Come on top 20 seed!
Edit: Actually, JC could be the 3rd Spaniard after Cincy. Robredo fans, turn away! Tommy has 225 points to defend from Cincy last year, and it doesn't look like he's going to defend most of them, unless he can manage to do what he couldn't do last week, which is to beat Gaston.
