He just lost several hundred points (I think 510) here at Monte Carlo. He really needs to make a statement and... win Istanbul and do better at Madrid, Rome, and the FO in 2015. Gaining at these four events will be easier for him because in 2014... Madrid absent, Rome 2nd round loss, and the FO 4th round loss. Therefore he has nothing to defend at Istanbul (new event), Madrid (absent in 2014), and Rome (0 points because first round bye and second round loss). As for the FO he only has 180 to defend for making the 4th round.
