He's not playing Bucharest anymore, but still hasn't pulled out of Palermo, so I think he'll be there, but it does look odd to play just one clay tournament after the USO. Oh well... apparently he'll be seeded #2 in Palermo.
Then Metz, Vienna, Madrid, Lyon and Paris? That sure is a lot.
I hope he gets his ranking up to inside the TOP15. I think it's possible, but he has to be more consistent than playing well every two weeks.
