I think Kudla, Sousa, Bedene, Capkovic, Kudryavtsev, Fischer, Crugnola and Zampieri are in with a shot. I would be shocked if Ghem and Mertens won though.
Of course Wang actually lost, whereas Ghem and Mertens both won. Ghem is a pretty mediocre player, so him reaching the MD of a GS is laughable. But it will be a dream for him.
Today's scores are just absolutely out there.
