No Australian? Well, he's never done well there. A bit to my surprise because that surface suits his game.

Yeah, his best recent results have come on hard courts, but I think he's worried about his hips.

Viña der Mar is the last event Guga can use protected ranking. Bueno Aires has issued a WC for Guga so he'll definitely play there. No doubt for Brazil Open. I guess Guga will need a WC for Acapulco too and he should have one as he's a former champion.

Yes, I assume he's getting a WC in Acapulco, since their official site has already announced him.

It seems that the ATP is not really strict about the rule concerning the usage of the protected ranking. In theory, Guga's limit of PR entries had already expired earlier this month, but the ATP has allowed him to use it in Vina del Mar and Costa do Sauipe. There have been other cases in the tour, for example Younes El Aynaoui in the past has entered a few more tournaments with his PR than the official limit would allow him to.

My guess is that they probably allowed Guga to use it finally twice more in February, and as he had already assured wildcards in Buenos Aires and Acapulco, he decided to return the WC he would receive in Sauipe to the tournament directors and enter the tournament with his PR, so that the TDs could give the wildcard to other players (they just gave one to Moya and the remaining two will probably go to Ricardo Mello and Thiago Alves).

Thanks for the explanation, Renato

Well, since there's no tournament in December, it's reasonable that ATP let him extend his PR for another month.

No problem, Lee.

Well, actually, considering the long break he took since the US Open, he could almost be granted another full year of protected ranking entries. Perhaps he should just postpone his comeback to April.

Oh, but then it would freeze around the 290th spot or so.

Looks like he heard you.

He's on the entry list for Indian Wells. He entered it with his protected ranking (one more entry granted by the ATP).

Scrambling to see if I can make the trip although it's not likely
