Ancic already withdrew from USO, and Roko needs 4 more withdrawals to get in the MD.

Roko has reached a new career-high ranking this week: 95 (up from 99 last week). He's only defending 8 points in August so he'll likely keep moving higher this month.

Another week, another career-high ranking for Roko: he moves up to #94 this week...

Why isn't he playing last few weeks? He withdrew from Washington and he had a chance to play there in the main draw...
Hope he isn't injured

I don't know why he hasn't played lately--I too hope he's not injured.

He's #4 on the qualy list for the US Open, after Ancic's withdrawal. Given that several more players on the MD entry list will likely withdraw due to injuries (Tsonga, Baghdatis, Ljubicic, Koubek?) Roko might just barely squeeze into the main draw.

Yes, Ljubicic withdrew too, maybe not officially but he will.
I don't know for others but there's still plenty of time for players to get injured

Chela has just withdrawn so Roko now moves up to #3 on the qualy entry list. Given how many other higher-ranked players are injured this year, it's pretty certain that Roko will squeeze into the main draw.

Robin Haase withdrew today so now Roko is second on the qualy entry list...

I think with Ljubicic withdrawing he's 1st but that's not official yet...

Baghdatis withdrew today, as expected, so Roko is now next for the main draw. With a couple more retirements still likely (Tsonga, Ljubicic?), Roko is pretty much guaranteed.

Ljubo officially withdrew today.
Good luck in the MD Roko

Default Re: Roko Karanusic cheering thread

Too bad about Ljubo, but at least he's being replaced by another Croat

At the US Open Roko is only defending 8 points (he won one match in qualies last year) so even if he loses in the first round (worth 5 points) this year, he'll only lose 3 points. On the other hand, if he wins his first match he'll likely move into the top 90, for a new career-high ranking.

Good luck, Roko. Hope you get a winnable first-round match. (I hope I'm not jinxing him!)

Roko drew a qualifier in the first round. Qualifiers can be dangerous because they come in with recent on-site match experience. Nonetheless this will be an excellent opportunity for Roko to get his first US Open MD win. Hope he doesn't disappoint!

Default Re: Roko Karanusic cheering thread

This could be a very winnable match. Of course if he draws Kendrick he'd most certainly lose, but he would have to beat Minar, Naso, Dabul, Zib, Cipolla and could beat some other players. Hopefully he'd be lucky. IMO 2nd round is winnable too but Roko would have to play his best tennis.

Against Sweeting in the 1st round. Will be a tough match, Roko has a much better ranking but I think this is more like a 50/50 match. Hopefully Roko wins.
