Didn't want to post after that Munich for a while so i get some steam out.
But it was solid today, except for that part in the second with 5 breaks in a row.
Marin has a horrible draw so next one is Del Potro/Youzhny and then possibly Nadal in R3. Always hope though, can dream win in R2 and a tight match with Nadal. Sleep well AncicCilic.
Btw. ranks are a bit messed up from last week since masters tournaments moved on calendar from last year, that's why Marin is 19th atm. With his win today he will take spot 21, was projected 22nd at the start of this week. I think it is really important that he avoids dropping out of top 25 because then on slams he would have to meet top 5-6 guys in earlier rounds if he's seed no. 26-32.
With a win in R2 he would get rank 20. I kind of hope Del Potro is tired from Estoril. Him and Marin had some nice battles, but i think Youzhny would be easier on clay.
Fan list: Cilic, Federer, Coric
P.S. Watch out for Donna Vekic and Borna Coric, 2020. Hopman cup winners.
