Roko is seeded #7 at RG qualies. Today he won his first-round match (def. Catalin Gard, 62 61). In the second round, he plays Martin Fischer, ranked 256. If he wins that, he'll play the winner of Ivan Miranda (#171) vs Alberto Brizzi (#292) for a spot in the MD.

Roko has an excellent chance to qualify--hope he doesn't blow it!

If he qualifies, he'll be just on the verge but probably still a few points short. If he qualifies and wins his first-round match, then he'll definitely be in, with lots of points to spare.

Roko won again today (def. Fischer 16 63 63) but it was a tough match; Roko actually won six fewer points (82 to 88). If he beats Miranda in the next round, he'll be in the MD. Good luck, Roko!!!

Defeated Miranda 6-3 6-1
He was 0-3 down in the first set but after that lost only 1 game and it was on his own serve.
Good luck in the MD

I was going trough the draw watching where he's placed and got to the last quarter and was afraid he maybe got Nadal, this surely was a relief but i don't expect an easy win. I still expect he'll win, but in 4 or 5 sets.

No, unfortunately, not even if he had beaten Djokovic today. He needed to reach the QFs to get into the top 100.

On to Wimbledon! He'll almost certainly be one of the top eight seeds, so should have a good chance of qualifying.

He made the MD in Wimbledon, 6 players from MD pulled out and 2 WCs weren't given to anybody. He was alt #7
Hope he gets a good draw and wins a match or two

i kind of wish he was in qualifying. he'd qualify almost for sure so he'd get some matches in and get some points. this way, he could get a bad draw and he won't collect points

Roko won his first-round match at Wimbledon today. He beat Horna (who has yet to win a first-round match in six tries) easily, 76 63 61.

Depending on where the point cut-off falls, Roko *just* might make it into the top 100 after Wimbledon. If not, he'll be very, very close.

In the next round he plays Lopez, the #31 seed. Good luck, Roko!

Roko plays his first round match in Umag against Piccari tomorrow at around 6.30pm. He should win this one and then take on Ljubicic.

FINALLY!!! Roko broke into the top 100 this week. He's at #99

That means there are *five* Croats in this week's top 100. Impressive!
