Nikola Ciric

Yes, he's a bit older, but he's in form now...

After winning 3 Futures in a row(Italy F13, Serbia F2, Austria F1), he qualified for two challengers... Firstly for San Marino, beating Naso in qualies, but losing in R1 to first seed Potito Starace in straight sets.. Next week, he qualified for Trani, where he defeated third seed Paolo Lorenzi in first round(63 36 60), but he lost to Flavio Cipolla in 2nd round after big fight(46 64 46)... Next week, he'll play in Geneve MD(without playing qualies!) and he'll play against first seed Paolo Lorenzi, again.. Can he do it twice in a row?

Re: Nikola Ciric

mad run. He's well inside the top 300 with that win, actually not far off 250. If he has maybe one more successful tourney in the next couple of months then he'll have a chance of AO qualifiers which would be great. That said, he's got some decent points to come off before the end of the season, so actually, he probably needs a couple of good (QF or higher) performances.

Great stuff though. Good luck tomorrow Nikola

Re: Nikola Ciric

He will get in top 300 with this performance, but not in top 250
He should be around 254th position next week

Re: Nikola Ciric

Another great win for him today in the first round of the Ljubljana challenger - again, playing Lorenzi, top seed, in the first round, and again, coming through in straight sets. Decent draw as well, could well have a run here if he can keep it going

Re: Nikola Ciric

Ciric is in the quarter finals in Ljubljana, and has taken the first set 6/1 against Galvani. He's defending SF points this week as he made Palermo challenger semi final with the same drop date last season, but that was his major points to defend for the remainder of the season. Another good tournament after this one and he could be pushing on towards top 200.

Re: Nikola Ciric

Ciric wins 6/1 7/5 and is into the semi final, so he won't lose points from last years semi final in Palermo.

Re: Nikola Ciric

Nikola has just 14 points to defend till the end of the year, and looks as though he'll be playing in most of the South American challenger swing.

He's playing this week in Beunos Aires and has got off to another fantastic start beating 7th seed and another player ranked 100 places higher - Ramon Delgado 6-2, 6-3. That already gives him 8 points. He can guarantee making the 6 remaining points if he wins in the second round, probably tomorrow, and he's playing a wild card who got a walkover in Round 1, so it's an opportunity for him, for sure. Another win would also, for a couple of weeks at least, get him inside that top 250....

Well done Niko

Re: Nikola Ciric

His opponent is 18 years old and R1 was his first ever Challenger win... It shouldn't be a big problem for Ciric, Ajde Nikola!
