Sorry to hear MM was not well. Could have ended that match in a better manner though. I am a big supporter of Marinko, who like Nick has shaped his own destiny, but he does himself no favours at times with the strange things he does on court = some strange rants at the umpires, bad tanks, etc., some of which I have witnessed first hand. He is a likeable guy and has a great game with a lot of potential but needs to tighten up the mental side. Hope he recovers soon - the better he performs, the better the finances will get.
The problem with MM and Lindahl is that they have both had to work very hard to get some support from TA. I remember, and it wasn't that long ago, when both of them just messed around and stayed on the futures circuit for like a year or two. They have obviously said to each other last year, we need to actually shape up and they started travelling together.
Both of them are obviously much more focused now and it paid off with both getting wildcards from TA during January. They are both very talented players, no one would deny that but unless they keep this workrate up and lift it even higher they won't go anywhere fast. Lindahl seems to be able to qualify for ATP events quite consistantly and Marinko has been pretty good on the challenger circuit this year so I think they will finish the year well.
You cannot blame Lindahl or Matosevic for being angry about someone like Bernard Tomic getting all the wildcards and they get hardly any but to be fair they both know exactly what TA is doing and why they are doing it and if they want to call themselves professionals they will start acting like them and keep doing what they have done this year. They are very lucky to represent a country that holds a Grand Slam, there are only four others and the fact that they complain is just amazing.
Czech Republic has zero ATP events and they have two players top 15 with one making the Wimbledon final, they do not realise how lucky they are. I think both Lindahl and Matosevic are big prospects for us in DC, espically Lindahl.
