good decission not to play martos(next spanish future), there´s a high level there
Oh, that is great news. It's not surprising that he's also decent on clay, most Spanish players are.
I see.. Yeah, it's always better to drop a future and play a different one if the draw is tough. It's difficult to improve his ranking that way. And that should be his main goal, to improve his ranking in order to be seeded for tournaments in the future, and even in order to play more challengers. I think he should start to play some more challengers when he gets his ranking high enough. It's always good to play against higher ranked guys, even if he ends up losing.

YAY! That is great news. I am so happy for Javi. He'll probably reach his career high ranking if he wins in the final. Maybe even if he ends up losing. He should get a lot of points for just making the final I think. I think he's able to reach the Top 300.. He's ranked 410 now, if I'm not mistaken, so around 390-400 perhaps with a win here?
