It looks like Kuznetsov will jump from #216 to about #180, assuming that he loses to Blake (anything can happen, but that would be an enormous upset the way Blake's playing). I hope his performance at the AO gives him the confidence to perform better on the Challenger circuit, where he really struggled at the end of last year.
Kuznetsov lost to Tyler Cleveland 6-7(5), 7-5, 6-4 in the first round of the Dallas Challenger. He's lost in the first round in eight of his last ten Challengers. Not good. He has the talent, but can't put it all together.
