Re: Nikola Ciric

Ciric now through to quarters, 6-1, 7-6 against Velotti. It means he's pretty much guaranteed a season ending rank inside the top 250, as he can only lose 14 points off of his total between now and then. This tournament sees him win at least 18. Berlocq next, will be tough, but he's showing great form, with a few top 100 wins in recent weeks.
Probably now has a serious shot of the top 200 before year end, considering his form. He's entered into all the SA clay court challengers.

Maybe he should have tried his luck in some of indoor 250s...

Yeah, i know what you mean, although the streak he's on in clay - lets not forget he had good form in the european swing also - it makes sense for me that he's continuing the run. He's maybe 2 good tournaments away from being well inside the cut-off for AO qualies at year end, whereas defeats in qualifying/first rounds of 250 tournaments wouldn't give him that points boost. It'll be interesting time when the new season starts, thats for sure. At Niko's age, he really needs to break into top 150-200 soon if he's going to have any chance of mixing it with the big boys for a little while.

Re: Nikola Ciric

More points on the board last night for Nikola, comfortably putting away Martin Alun 6/4, 6/3 in Paraguay. Tough second round match against either Santiago Ventura, or Brian Dabul but each of these wins pushes him a little closer to the top 200. Another excellent serving display on the clay yesterday - 9 aces and only 2 break points faced. On the Alun serve, he had 12 break point opportunities over the course of the match, which took an hour 25. Well done Nikola.

Astonishing win. This is some run he's on. He'll face Galdon in the quarter finals, which is a match he definately has a chance of winning. Good news is, after the tough 2 hour battle with Dabul, he has another day off today, so good for recovery. 25 aces yesterday, which, on clay in a 3 set match is a hell of a feat. I'd like to see him on grass!!

Win yesterday takes him to a projected ranking of 236. A win against Galdon will see him up to 213. It's not impossible, in fact, for him to climb into the top 200 this week, although, he would probably need to win the event - a runner up spot would likely leave him 3 or 4 places short of the 200. There's another 6 weeks left of the South American clay court challenger swing, i'm guessing he'll play at least 4 of those events, and in this form, well, i'd say top 200 by the end of the season is the minimum he can manage.

Keep it going Niko.....

Re: Nikola Ciric

Following him a bit lately. Can anyone please tell me what kind of player he is? I see he only plays on clay, but he also has a good serve judging by the 25 aces against Dabul?

Iv´e seen him play 3 times, an tall player, who isn´t the fastest on court maybe that´s why he do his best results on clay. Plays an typical clay game, a lot of spin down the baselines and got an huge serve as his best weapon. Would be interesting to see him on an faster surface as carpet,hardcourt and grass next year. Some good results upcoming weeks will secure him an place at Grands slams quallies in AO,RG and wimbledon. Just keep on rocking

Re: Nikola Ciric

Thanks.
So a bit like the guy in your avatar but then with more spin.

Don't think he should worry about GS qualis now. Just get up his rankings, try to get directly into big challengers and gain points.

Re: Nikola Ciric

Another very good win against Hocevar today.

Saw that he is OUT of Sao Paolo next week, anyone knows why? Taking rest?
