And again a challenger win! Strange that hardly anybody here is following him closely...
This week he had a lot of points to defend so he won't climb the rankings very much, but after this he has absolutely nothing to defend the coming 8 months or so, so he can only climb. Hope he keeps injury free.
Qualified for St Pete main draw just now with three convincing wins. It's been a long time since he played an ATP-tournament, I think more than two years. Now let's hope he gets a good draw and does well.
He wins 6-4 6-4. Tomic should get some Challenger experience. The constant wildcards can only hurt him, even if he is in Australia. Oh well. Stepanek should be the end of the road, but anything can happen.
If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.
