    Janowicz: Can He Qualify for the WTF?

    There still are plenty of points up for grabs. But can Jerzy gain enough points to make it into the #8 spot? Right now he's 1135 points behind Del Potro so he needs to outperform the top eight by at least that much. The qualification cut will drop, it will probably be around 3,000 points...
