Martin starts season in Brisbane. Then, he made an early commitment to Auckland and Australian Open after, of course. Following tournaments are not known yet, but I will update it when it will be avaiable. :)
- Australian Open
- Davis Cup (at Ukraine)
I would guess he will play Acapulco. He said something in September that he wants to play there or so. So it is questionable whether he will play for example in Buenos Aires or he won´t play South American clay swing at all and wait for Monte Carlo.
As he is commitment player now, he has to play 8 Masters tournaments and 4 ATP 500 tournaments which makes his schedule more predictable.

Klizan hasn´t made any commitments yet, but here is my thought what his plans may look like after Australian Open.
- Davis Cup @ Ukraine
- Buenos Aires
- Indian Wells
I think Zagreb tournament is little bit questionable, he may be tired after DC but Zagreb should have a playable field. Then a tough decision will be to choose between South America or Europe, but I think he should try it in Buenos Aires and Acapulco. Slow hardcourts at Indian Wells and Miami should not be problem after playing on clay.

He will play Zagreb, has a very good chance of winning it IMO.

Yes, he will be seeded in Zagreb, maybe even in top 4, but I don´t think he will win it, SF at best.
Question is still, whether he plays Acapulco (Buenos Aires possible too). I think he should, points-wise.

So Klizan signed in Zagreb and Rotterdam lately, which is little suprising for me, I thought he would want to play on South American clay.
Right now he is off-form, so it should be clever, but he had chosen really strong field in Rotterdam instead. So here is what his schedule look like : (it is really comparable with Lacko's).
- Australian Open
- Davis Cup in Ukraine
Question is, whether he wants to play on hard till clay season, or try to go to South America before IW - Miami. He said in September he wants to see Acapulco beaches, so we will see :) Schedule may looks like this :
- Indian Wells
- Dallas CH (if he loses early in IW, but I really doubt he would play here)

So, option with Klizan playing South American clay swing definetely falls down. He signed in Marseille (in Buenos Aires week).
Probably only Indian Wells - Miami next.

So far nothing changes, after Marseille he has a week break and then off to Indian Wells and Miami. Clay season is closer and closer.
Claycourt schedule may look like this :
Monte Carlo - Barcelona - Munich - Madrid - Rome - (Nice) - Roland Garros.
Masters are mandatory for him, he would probably want to play Barcelona as it is 500 and in case of not good results still an option to play Nice right before RG.
He is defending 215 points from clay season before Wimbledon (60 Prague CH, 110 Bordeaux CH and 45 from RG) plus 160 points during Indian Wells and Miami for Rabat/Marrakech double last year (each 80 points). So if he does well in American Masters tournaments, he has a shot to aim even higher in rankings during clay tournaments, also chance to be seeded player at Roland Garros.

Seems like Klizan signed up in Casablanca already, good choice imo ;)

Martin's full clay season schedule:
Casablanca - Monte Carlo - Barcelona - week off - Madrid - Rome - probably week off - Roland Garros.
Also in my opinion he will play Queens Club after RG just like he did last year. But that's not sure.
