Too bad he lost in Segovia. I still think it's huge to just compete in the tourney. He got a WC, which is amazing in itself. The experience of training and playing against more difficult opponents is also a good thing. He lost this time, but I'm sure he will reach far in the next tourney. He just needs to keep the momentum going. He's had some amazing couple of months! I just wish he would win a couple of Challenger matches too, but I'm sure he will soon enough. Vamos Javi! Good luck.
I completely agree. And let's not forget he lost to a guy who is almost 200 places above him in the rankings, and still Javi managed to take a set off him, which is great.
He's 4th seed in qualifying draw of Istanbul Challenger http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/226/qs.pdf
I think he has a nice draw, and I good chance to qualify here
