This is a definite setback for Marius who looked like he was finally starting to mature last season. Hopefully he can regroup next week and not go back to his old ways.
After all the confidence issues marsel went through last year a win like this is great for him. He had a number of losses like this last year too where the match could have gone ither way. To start the season with a close win over a good young players , its a good start. Its got to be a confidence builder for marsel..which is what he needs more than marius at the moment and why i think marsel needed it more.Marsel was also in a downward spiral. He ended the season well last year but on the futures circuit

so i say marsel needed this more both for the confidence and because he's farther down than marius so the points he could get here will be nice in his climb back to the top 100

i do like marius though so this result also sucks a bit for me because id like to see marius make top 100. However he's probably only a few good results away at the right tournaments.I wouldnt call this a set back for him because marsel is alot better than where he's ranked right now, its not like he lost to a nobody
