This is a great chance for Luczak to shoot up the rankings. He initally drew Soldering but he withdrew so he was replaced by Zverev. THe draw has really opened up[ and a quarter final appearance in Las Vegas should be relatively easy. He faces Gulbis in the second round.
Relatively easy? Gulbis is the favourite to win this match.
As for Davis Cup spots, Peter will be considered for the clay ties, but on the other surfaces, they haven't called him up yet and that's understandable.
