They have a shot. Dodig/Melo are #6 in the doubles team rankings, only 305 points behind the #4 team (http://www.atpworldtour.com/Rankings/Teams.aspx).

Re: Ivan Dodig

This week Dodig is the top-ranked Croat in singles and doubles

No disrespect to Dodig as I'm a big fan, but it's a bad sign that the top-ranked Croat is at #34.

When was the last time the best Croat was ranked that low? It must have been many, many years ago...

Re: Ivan Dodig

nice win in doubles today..into tokyo QF. tough matches ahead, but let's hope for a big result this week to increase his YEC chances

don't remember the last time our top player was #34, but i'm not worried. it was much worse IMO when ljubo and mario were both slumping/injured. with marin, we know he'll be back soon, dodig is actually underranked imo and will hit the top30/25 soon and there is always coric

That is not the fact cause Cilic was #11 before ban. Don't forget Mario would be top 10 if he stayed healthy. In normal circumstances we would have two top 10 players. Where would Swizerland be without Federer and Wawrinka? Evene one (tennis) big Spain without Nadal and Ferrer?
One important thing is there is no croatian school of tennis and than we can say "fuck, we don't produce tennis players anymore". All of that are private "manufactures" and we will always have good players. I think we will have bright future like anytime before in our 3 top prospects. All of them will be top 10 in same period (both ATP&WTA), and that wasn't happend before.
I think we will have alot of great sportmen in years to come cause that kids didn't live and train in war-time.

Re: Ivan Dodig

Ivan playing in Tokyo this week. Won his first singles match 63 61 against a WC, and pocketed more than $16K

He also won his first doubles match, worth another $5K or so.

Re: Ivan Dodig

he beat tsonga
tsonga fans, of course, claim tsonga wasn't 100%, which is why he travelled to tokyo from europe after making a final with a 1000 coming up

Re: Ivan Dodig

^ this

Up to #31 in the live rankings, which would be a CH ranking

He plays Nieminen next, for a spot in the SF. Not a sure thing but it's winnable. Good luck!
