In the latest rankings (January 5, 2009), Roko has moved up two spots, to #89. That's a career-high ranking for him and first time ever in top 90. Very auspicious start to the new year for Roko. Best of luck to him in 2009.
Boy, did I ever jinx Roko! He dropped in the rankings from 96 at the end of 2008 to 189 (end of 2009) then to 424 (end of 2010).
But now he's having a mini-resurgence. Last week he was runner-up at a $15K in India. He beat the #3 and #2 seeds in straights, then lost to Yuki Bhambri, a local player and world #1 junior in 2009.
This week he was runner-up at another $15K in India. He beat the #8 seed by the strange score of 60 36 60 and in the final lost to the top seed, Adam Kellner.
