Not Top 100 at the moment, but still I was hugely surprised not to see a thread about him in here.

He played an outstanding tournament in early January in Doha, winning 6 matches in a row from qualies onto the semifinal where he lost against Rafael Nadal in 3 sets.
He has wins over Thiem and Kohlschreiber (in Doha) and he qualified for Australian Open 2014.

The last weeks were bad and he had some injuries.
This week he'll play Munchen.

What can we expect?
Is he healthy again?

In Davis Cup he won against Tsonga in a five set thriller.
I haven't saw that match but it is very convincing result.

Although Karlovic appears to be in decline, the win today in 3 sets is still a very impressive result. It must be such a huge mental effort to hang in there while service bomb after service bomb goes flying past you. The match against Ebden should be interesting because both players want it so much. Both guys had 3-setters but have a day of rest before their big semifinal. If Ebden wins, the 150 points minimum for reaching the final would mean jumping up ~90 ranking spots, from #249 to about #159. Not as much of a leap for Gojowyzck, from #131 to #91, but that would mean direct entry into Slams. Yuppers, both players have a helluva lot of motivation to win this next match.

Very important match for Gojo. He has a really great opportunity for a
big rankings boost. Final would put him to 500 points this season and
top100 ranking again. Has not been there a while.
It would also almost guarantee a AO maindraw and a good chance for
direct acceptances at 250 events after the US Open.
I actually hope he gets the trophy, get a new career high and putting him
in a place to manifest his top 50 ranking someday. That is where he would
have been for a long time without his injury problems.

Best of luck Gojo.
