marsel really should make the final with this draw

rycka has it tough..he'll probably lose in the QF to darcis

Filo V.
09-17-2011, 03:40 PM
Well, Marsel should make the QF by losing 6 or fewer games, but I wouldn't lock him in the finals at all. If he's not feeling confident in his game he can go down as early as QF to Jaziri.

Filo V.
09-17-2011, 03:41 PM
Steve has played a really hard week this week in Davis Cup, we'll see what shape he's in if he plays here. Nielsen is a pretty good player. Rycka will need to be in good form and continue being motivated.

Draw is actually better than I expected, some interesting matches potentially deeper to the tournament.

We were better organized in both tournaments last year (Istanbul and Izmir). There was a livescore for both and even livestream for Izmir. Look at that now, office boy can't say the score.

why is marsel only projected to drop 2 places next week?

not that i want him to plummet but he's defending a final this week and live score has him dropping just 2 spots

Filo V.
09-19-2011, 08:18 PM
There's a pretty significant gap between guys around or at 500+ points and then the ones who are in the mid 400s and less, so that's probably why. The points are more important than the positions.

terrible..just terrible..im living in germany but i am a guy which home city is izmir.. and i cant believe that they are so poor to give scores on phone. i asked the guy: give me pls the scores from played matches today. and he asked : which match you want.. i said: mertens-bubka. he said: oh sorry this i dont know.. then i asked : is there any match which you know the score.. he said no. i will call in 10 minutes again.but i am hopeless.

Thanks for trying to get the scores. That "results guy" is just a joke :banghead:

So bad this tournament doesn't take it as seriously as you would expect. Nowadays you have so many options to share the result as soon as possible. Is it so hard to create a twitter account to give the results if you don't have a livescore?

Very close in the first, got very unlucky in the big moments(3 let cords in his favor at 56). Second set started well but too many mistakes.

so he had a tight first set he stil, drilled him in the 2nd set

i think marsel will be okay, i dont expect him to cruise but i still favor marsel over grigelis

bubka scares me the most but ..im still putting marsel into the final

Lacko-Brezac 6-1, 6-3! Well done Lukas Lacko. But why is it unbelievable? He was speaking about his form last week, he is satisfied with his current level and told that he is OK now. Still not 100% but OK and improving. Yes, he was playing like a fool some weeks ago, but he has some talent for sure and he is finding confidence now. He has a legit shot against Darcis for sure. I would be disappointed if he would lose tomorrow´s match, he should be more comfortable and fresh than Darcis. He also completely destroyed Steve when they played against each other last time. Ilhan is the favorite for this tournament though...

I was going to say, I 100% expect Cipolla to beat Ilhan, and that was before I knew the H2H. I think Cipo will win the title. I think Darcis-Lacko goes three sets, I think Steve is too regular for Lacko and wins.

Challengerslover
09-24-2011, 04:34 PM
Lacko´s win was fully expected, I have told you yesterday. Darcis could lose also in earlier rounds. Score is still surprising, but Lacko is finding his old form. He has a real talent and when he is OK and concentrated only on tennis, then he has top 100 potential. Fully deserved final for both players, Marsel is at home and is favorite, but look at Lacko´s scores here. He is destroying opponents here, and has to play some great tennis in Izmir.

I totaly agree with "Challengerslover" (read above).
In optimal circumstances, Lacko is top 50-player - I speak about play-ability. But there are more items, which are important for him to reach it. It is only about his approach...

Filo V.
09-24-2011, 09:31 PM
Lacko, IMO, is an 80-115 type player. I can understand the fatigue situation that led to Steve succumbing to Darcis today, but overall, Darcis is definitely better. Ilhan is also better than Lacko is. But Lacko does have some game, he's not a mug. He can hit a good ball from the baseline.
