Odesnik is still alive but he would have to out-perform Kuznetsov by 46 pts next week. Kuznetsov has 120 pts cause he got 5 extra for coming thru qualies. So, basically Odesnik has to reach at least the finals while Kuznetsov loses 1st rd.
If Kuznetsov makes it to the 2nd rd then Odesnik has to win the tournament and Kuznetsov cant make it past the semis.
Just checked the draw and Kuznetsov plays Jack Sock 1st rd, so it should be a tough match for both.
