You're right, but I was talking when they had the same age. GGL was quite similar to the current Martí when I saw him for the first time in Valencia against Ferrero (it was 2003 or 2004). He improved a lot physically in the next years.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Klizan def. Fattar 6-4 6-1

Does anyone notice that Klizan has sort of a Djokovic vibe to him? The way he carries himself reminds me of Nole. He comes off like an ATP player to me.

Serving will have to improve in next matches but the draw is great for him, not a lot of pressure.

Crivoi wins the second set over Knittel 7-6(11)

Knittel was up a break in the second set. How many MP's did he have, or set points for Crivoi?

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Gicquel 7-6(6)

Both guys are hitting the ball hard when the opportunity presents, but Marco is playing smarter and absorbing pressure when need be. Kuznetsov is ballbashing for the most part and making a lot of errors.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Marc is not serving well and is making way too many errors. Not a good match.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Kuznetsov is really dominating this set, but Marco is just finding a way to continue to hang on.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

I don't know...........Kuznetsov's groundstrokes are overall superior by a fair margin. Marco has to serve himself out of trouble as he's been doing. Kuznetsov's motivation I think will make the experience factor a small one.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

yeah but if this gets to a tiebreak i would favor marc. I like Andrey but his record in tiebreakers is not that great

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Back to back awesome creative shots from Marco. Too skilled and too slick. You're right, Misty, experience is playing a factor here.
