Your expectations for Marin in 2013
 
He has a great chance to be top 10 after the AO. He has no points to defend first 3-4 months and AO is the tourney that fits him best. Milos just lost today and If Marin wins Chenai he'll leapfrog Isner and Raoic and be #12 seed which means that he won't play top 4 players until quarters. Go Marin!

Unfortunatelly he is once again stuck in 13-16 seeding group. Let's hope that he gets the 4th seed quarter and plays well in best out of 5 matches.

I agree that he can definitely get to top 10 in first few months. In fact, he must do that and i expect it of him.

He didn't deserve better, really. He is loosing vs Copil, Dodig, Paire. That's embarrasing for even top 20 players.

With Isner gone ::::( he gets #12 spot. If he avoids Del Po he can do some damage and possible quarters.

Yup, avoiding Delpo is key. He has a fair shot against Tsonga and Berdych and at least 50-50 vs Tipsy, although imo he'd be the favorite due to H2H and better Slam consistency. I'd love to see him start the reason with a Slam QF, but even R4 would not be awful if he shows some good tennis.

I just hope he avoids Delpo in the draw really, if that happens he could do great.

He beat Delpo at AO in the latter's last match before leaving the tour for a year for surgery. It's a very tough matchup for Marin for many reasons. Of course he has his chances, he can reach a very high level with his game and beat almost anyone; but if he is to face Delpo, let it be further in the tournament, not in round 4. Tsonga, Berdych and Tipsy are far more beatable opponents for him so Marin will be hoping to draw one of them I'm sure.

How unlucky he is he will get Delpo. I think he would beat all others.
However, Marin can beat everybody, but he can't beat mind. That's I am talking about all the time. If his head is "normal" (tennis wise) he would win a Slam instead Delpo 2009.

It's always same: easy first week and than one of his "nemesis" (Del Potro either Murray).

Marin got the worst draw possible. Delpo round 4 is not a joke.

If he make 1/8 here and wins Zagreb (or vene make a semis) he has very good chance fot number 11. That would be great for american's Masters seedings. If he want to crack into top 10 he needs to 1/8 here and to wins Zagreb and Memphis (Isner and he are top seeds). If he is in form like he was last 6 months (I think he is in even better form) it's likeable he will make it.
I like his attitude that he have to make top 10 until Mrch, to beat some top 10 at AO. Only with that attitude he can make big things.

First match is vs Matosevic around 7 AM tommorrow. Hope he will win in 3 (which will not bew easy).
He has 3 1/8 and one semis in Australia (and just one early exit, in 1st round of his maiden MD of AO).
However, I wouldn't be suprise if he will loose, that's Cilic.

3:0 today. Good performance.

With this win he surpassed Isner and Monaco and he will be #12 probably at 4 of February.

Marin easy cruised in the 3rd round.
Next one is Seppi who played more than 4 hours today, while Marin played 2 (it was 40 degrees). Marin is better but that will help.
Marin is in really good form. I am sure he is better player than he was ever before, he is more complete. I would say he is composed now.

This is introduce in DC tie, too.
