Yeah, he wants top 100 badly. His sponsor (Turkcell) will give him a prize money if he makes top 100.
Also he gets really great draw in İzmir until semis. If he wins tomorrow and makes quarter-final at least, he will be in top 100 likely. But after that week he has to keep his 32 pts from Thailand Open.
With 60 points from Banja Luka, he move up by 15 to 113th place today.
He will get additional 40, if he wins today, which alone puts him very close to top 10
And there are still points to be won in İzmir as well.
He's defending 56 points the next three weeks, so most of his good result here will be for not if he doesn't have some decent results coming up. Hopefully for him this is a sign of things to come and not a one-off.
So, I checked Marsel's profile and haven't found these 56 points in next three weeks.
