but still clay is clay.... I have never said he´s on the Futures level I just meant he played much more matches on clay in Europe and got some titles there... yeah, challengers are tougher, of course he gained some experience but IMO he learned more from playing in European Futures than playing in South America where he played only 4 tournaments... anyway good luck to James! hope he will get as many points as possible in Marrakech...

Victor withdrew from the event? If so, that's a big deal for the bottom half of the draw. He's on the OOP for tomorrow.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Heh I just noticed this doubles result:

A. Bury/M. Kowalczyk vs. J. Dasnières de Veigy/M. Gicquel 7:6(4), 4:6, [27:25]

Is that some kind of record for a champions tie-break??

it must be a record indeed I remember seeing 25-23 once, last year at some Spanish future, but never saw such a score before.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Adrian was super unimpressive, particularly in the first set, and I think Munoz takes him out.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

I thought Marti played like Alberto Martin, but he doesn't really. I don't know who I'd compare him to. Not really been that impressed by him ever.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Physically, he reminds me of GGL a little bit. I think their movement is similar as well. Obviously GGL is much better than him nowadays, but Martí is still improving, so we'll see.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Marti doesn't look anything like GGL...GGL is much stronger physically. Marti is mentally weak. That may get better with age but who knows...

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Idmbarek fought very hard till the very end of the 1st set, but lost all the belief after losing it and gave up. Yeah, Ungur was really unimpressive, was overusing dropshot a lot and was two points away from losing the 1st set a couple of times at *4:5 30/30 and deuce.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

GGL is quite tall, lean and strong, Marti is sort of short and scrawny. I wouldn't compare them physically. As far as game, Marti is a counter-puncher and GGL likes to take offense. But I do see some similarity in that Marti likes to use the net, and GGL will also go forward and use his volleys in advantageous positions.

Marti is dictating play today but I've never seen him forcefully dictate play against reasonable opponents.
