Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Unfortunately I missed Klizan-Marti, how did the match play out? 6-1 6-0 is embarrassing but not surprising whatsoever.

Blaz is playing alright, Crivoi has been error, error, error but he's starting to get into the match now. I thought this match would be dangerous for Blaz. He's starting to make a few errors he wasn't in the first set.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Not a surprise Crivoi has improved a bit, but with Kavcic who knows hehe,

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".

Delbonis struggles to win second serve points a lot, it seems. That's the big difference in the stats between he and Donskoy. Usually that would mean Donskoy is winning more of the rallies. Hopefully DelBo comes back here.

Fine dropshot there by Crivoi.

Hope Kavcic stops being defensive. Has let Crivoi dictate the points in this set.

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

Kavcic tanked that game, this has been a moody match.

Crivoi 6-2

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Kavcic totally collapsed.... Crivoi is probably going to win the third very easily

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Second set doesn't mean much, IMO. Comes down to who has the better attitude and who wants the match more in the third set. Blaz has to definitely pick up his aggression; way too defensive in the second set.

Also, he needs to stay away from the backhand and attack Crivoi's serve. Obviously, serving at 35% first serves will not cut it and has to improve in the third set.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Did anyone see Klizan-Marti? Could anyone give me just a small report of the match? It's too bad I missed.........I blame my brother for keeping me up late because he was eating dinner at 10:00

this will be over in less than 30 minutes in Crivoi's favour. hope Kavcic proves me wrong but I've seen this so many times.

Blaz needs to pick it up right now, starting to look flat. He's getting beaten badly by BH DTL's.

Well, Crivoi is the type who can go in and out of form at the drop of a hat, but Kavcic right now looks totally out of it mentally. If he loses serve here, he's going to find it hard to come back.

So many errors from Kavcic.
