He's first alternate in Madrid, but some players should withdraw, like every year. But it's strange to see his name beyond the direct spots.
The thing is, that's with his old 39 rating. He should get direct entry there, but it will get tougher for Paris, for which I think his ranking of next week counts, no matter what (does anybody acutally know how long before a tourny the ranking counts?). Although I still think he'll get a WC.
