Dok jednon ne smrkne, drugon ne svane!

9pm here and finally I'll get to see Marin play. Only bad thing is that all the matches I wanted to see start at the same time.

Re: Your expectations for Marin in 2013

He's been serving and playing quite well, I like what I'm seeing. If he beats Seppi tonight and puts a respectable effort against Delpo (even if he ends up losing) I'll consider this a successful tournament and good start to the season.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Your expectations for Marin in 2013

Marin will be 12th in the World at 4 of February, which is good. But it's not good how he mentally collapsed in the 3rd round.
If he can repeat tennis from first two rounds in Zagreb it will be good, but if he can't he will just go down in the rest of the season. He needs a title there if he wants to go up.

In Zagreb and Memphis (500) he will be top seed.

Re: Your expectations for Marin in 2013

Marin is 345 points away of top ten. He is top seed in Zagreb and Mephis. If he wins that and make 1/8 final at IW and Miami he will gain 635 points more. So he would have 290 points more than Gasquet right now which wold be enough for top 10 I think. Actually he would overpass Tipsarevic for 5 points, too. If he doesn't win Zagreb he will have 190 points more. So, I think he really should concertrate to win Memphis (would gain 410 points more) and he could drop in top 10 after that. His biggiest rivals will be Raonic, Nishikori, Isner, Haas , Querry, Dolgopolov, Verdasco. IThat is his best chance.
From IW and Miami he can gain 125 poins for two 1/8 or 305 for two quaters. After that european clay swing starts which mean he would gave slimer chances. He needs to jeep 12th seeding spot and than he should make top 10 until RG finishes. Actually untill than he should become topl 10 regular.
By the way he has veey good chance to overpass Almagro because Spaniard need to defend 400 points in this month.

Re: Your expectations for Marin in 2013

Those are very nice plans, but unfortunately we all know that they will not come true.
Every year it's the same old story.

Unfotunatelly, that's true.
But last time he was 12th was in the year he was 9 plus he does need to defend just 2nd round of Miami in next 4 tournaments. And he is going up in rankings. In the Mart last year he was 1300 points away from the top ten while he is 300 points away now. Plus when he grab 12th seeding spot he made two quaters at Masters. If he repeat last summer form he will win Zagreb, make semis in Memphis and make two quaters at American Masters. That would be 495 points more.
But winning of Memphis is his goal, otherwise he would't skip Rotterdam nor Dubai.

But knowing Cilic he will gaine the most points at 250. That should be Munich and maybe Zagreb (because he is probably tired and in changeable form). However that is good two because he needs to defend titles in Queen's and Umag plus semis of Hamburg and 1/8 at Wimbledon in just one month spare.

Re: Your expectations for Marin in 2013

skipping rotterdam and dubai is the smartest thing he has done, better to have a chance for semis in memphis than to go out in 2nd/3rd round against top4.

Ideally he will win Zagreb and Memphis, get into semis/finals of delray beach and get into the quarters of IW & Miami.
Realistically, he'll get into the semis of Zagreb, Memphis, Delray and lose in the 4th round of IW/Miami.

I forgot he will play Delray Beach.
There is no 4th round in Miami, that is quaters (64), while IW has 124 players.
You can't really predict anything about Cilic, he can loose whereever and whenever. I would say he will make atleast quaters in Zagreb, quaters in Memphis, semis in DB, 3rd round (skip first one) in IW and 2nd in Miami. With that results he would gain just 80 points more. Actually I think he will have some 200 or maybe even 300 points more.

Re: Your expectations for Marin in 2013

Bravo Marin, third title in Zagreb!

He is over 200 points ahead of Raonic (needs to defend title in San Jose and final of Memphis), he is 300 points ahead of Simon. So he will be atleast 12th seed at American Masters. Very important.
If Almagro doesn't make final in Sao Paolo (should face Monaco in semis), Marin will surpass him.
If Marin wins Memphis next week (first seed) and Gasquet doesn't make quaters in Rotterdam this week (forth seed; played final of Monpellier last week) he is in top 10. Good thing is all of his competition from Memphis play San Jose this week (except Dolgopolov).

If somehow Marin would play well he even has chance to be number 8 after RG.
For that he needs to win 255 points more than Tsonga in the same time, than to win 20 points less than Tipsarevic (they would be tied but Marin has edge at H2H) and 40 (they would be tied, they have never played before), 45 points more than Gasquet.
