Clay 2008: *8 wins 5 losses with SF's in Portschach and 4th round at RG *

Here we go again Clay

I would be happy with 3 or 4 wins on the dirt this season
Ivan will play Monte Carlo,Rome,Hamburg and RG (possibly WTC too).

Good luck

Re: Clay 2008: *Monte Carlo is the next stop*

He won't do good there. He's not seeded, and every of the seeded players is far better on than him on clay. Also he didn't do good on HC so how can we expect good results on clay?
If MC, Rome, Hamburg and RG are the only tournaments he plays, I predict 1 win.

Ivan is #29 now.

His worst ranking since 18th October 2004 (he was also 29th then)

And unfortunately he will probably only go down in the rankings. I don't see him getting to the 3rd round in RG.

Ivan is not bad on clay as many people think. he can atleast return serve on clay and stay in rallies, if he can cut down on UE's he can win some matches and his ranking wont go down much, rest of the season there is NOTHING to defend.

I don't think he is especially bad on clay, but he isn't playing his best tennis anymore. It's possible he won't be seeded in RG, and I don't see him making 3rd round that way. Even if he's seeded, I don't think it'll happen. Hope I'm wrong.

Well done Ivan, but let's not get carried away. I think Ivan can be happy if he loses with a 6-3 6-4 score. But anyway, ajmo Ivane!
