No, his Sunrise pts has already been replaced by Dubai's pts.
32 to 25 seeds is the same, will get 1-8 in 3rd round. As for Miami, we'll have to see what happened in IW to determine if he will gain position or not, that's always a chance other below him may put up good performance to surpass him. So we should wait. The good news is, every match he wins in the next 5 ATP 1000 (IW, Mia, MC if he enters, Rome and Madrid), plus RG will gain him points. I think his goal for RG should be 16th seed, it's very achievable. Then again, on clay, for him, I have no idea what to expect.
