Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Klizan 5-3*

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Klizan is just too good for most challenger mugs out there.
Guy is really turning the corner this season

That was so bad from Filippo outside of the first half of the second set. But he got finalist points so I can't complain. He played mediocre the entire week and had a weak draw, everything crashed and burned today.

Klizan had his shaky moments but overall, played a great match, determined, professional, and overpowered Volandri. Really good performance, my intuition was RIGHT!!!!! I predicted Klizan would take the title here, I just felt it. He's really starting to mature into a high-level player.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Winner : Martin Klizan)

I still don't really think Klizan would succeed at the ATP level but he definitely deserves the shot. He's up to #106 and going deep next week in Marrakech will propel him to the top 100. He's showed he can consistently do damage in strong clay challengers so it's really time to see what he's made of.

Hasn't Klizan got a gun junior record or something?

Klizan won juniors French Open in 2006. He was a top junior but I don't remember him ever being necessarily hyped to a large degree.
