Better match from Marin than yesterday vs Bolelli. Not great, but solid. He got out to a 6-0 3-0 lead and then things got interesting. Cilic's serve declined and Rosol started to have more opportunity to get into rallies and crack the ball. He was a lot more consistent in the second set and made Cilic work for it, until the tiebreak where he leaked errors and Marin was solid.

Marin isn't playing amazingly well in any department but he's hitting the ball solidly overall, minimizing mistakes in windy conditions and has out-solidified his two opponents thus far, although that's not hard to do given he played Rosol and Bolelli. This tournament is good for him to gain a rhythm and he's doing just that.

Dancevic. The level he's at now will be enough in that match. The SF/F he'll have to upgrade it but right now, it's fine.

He should win this tournament, but Haas seems to be in a good form.

Tommy has been the best player of the event thus far, but Marin would play better playing someone like Haas, so it would be a very even match.

It will be very hard vs Frank, he is very good player. It will be interesting semis Haas vs winner of this one. Haas will make the final. If Cilic wins the whole thing he will be back in top 20 (20th spot exactly).

According to this site -> http://live-tennis.eu/ he'd only get to #22 with a title here :shrug:
