Re: Frederico Gil
After a great start to the season at the Aussie Open, and now a decent ATP250 Vina del Mar in singles (QF), and a victory in doubles (which gives a lot of confidence), skies cleared a bit. Gil needs to secure about 200 points until mid-April (Monte Carlo week) to secure Top-100 for most of the season, and GS direct acceptance, beggining in Roland Garros. If he manages this 200 points, it will be possible to attack something near top-50 till the end of the season, assuming his good form endures. But, for now, really, the main challenge is to get 200 points in about two months. Otherwise, he will go through qualies at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, and that is always a downturn in a players career, with unpredictable outcome. But all reasons to believe that he will make it, since he just won an ATP event, even if it was the doubles draw. Go Gil!
