Default Lets talk about grass

So hopefully he can advanced his rankings here as he only has 145 points to defend here.

Roland Garros R32 90
Rome R32 45
Madrid R64 10

He will have good chance for R16 in MC cause there is no clay specialist under him and he will be in top 24 seeds which means he will avoid top 8 seeds in R32. But problem is he is so affected of loss vs Djokovic.

I have to confess, he really dissapointed me. He just stoped to play tennis after loss vs Djokovic. Only 3 games (from 4:4 in the third) vs Janowitz was Marin from the February. He should step it up, that is the only way for him.

I heard he was sick in Miami; that's why he lost early to Roger-Vasselin.

Who said that? Ok, he has some problems with his nose and he coughed but he is stillout of form and he was sooo dissapointed after match vs Djokovic. That is the problem. You can see the way he played in Warsawa he is not in the form.

For some reason he's always out of form this part of the year and then he picks again in may.

Yes.
The best thing in his carrer is Ivanisevic. He will push him to the limit. He needed him so much.

R1-Verdasco R2-Wawrinka R16-Almagro QF-Raonic
for me this very good draw for marin even for semis here.he needs to pass verdasco in R1 that will be tricky but others are all beateble at the moment.We need Marin from February at this tournament to have any chance to do something here

Unfortunately he will go out in R1. This draw is terrible. Worst unseeded player, GS champ, Marin never beated Almagro on clay. All of them have better career high than him.

His draw is very tough, he has a good QF against Raonic but very very bad R64, R32 and R16 matches. He has no pressure to defend points so I hope he does his best and then if he wins it will be fine, otherwise just move on. Next tournament for Marin is Barcelona, he will have a good chance to make a deep run to the QF or something like that. If Gasquet withdraws from Barcelona then he will be the 10th seeded, which will give him a BYE in 1st round. After his 2nd round match he will need to play against other seeded players, then it can happen everything.

Verdasco withdrew so Marin will play against Matosevic.

Bad desplay today. He lost 5 games out of 7 in one moment vs australian plyer on clay. But this is better than vs Janowitz. I hope he will raise to his A level vs Wawrinka.
