Interesting that he was clearly ill but still got onto the court and gave it his all. Thanks for that maratness. Hope he feels better soon.

Marinko is a character, really entertaining (and cute! ). Some people won't appreciate his antics, but they're undeniably funny and after all, his idol is Safin.

He was sick today too, but managed to play quite well (lovely passing shots) and was pumped up for most of the match. He has the right mentality to do well, I expect some good results in the future.

I saw the ball match yeah he looked quite sick but did well to win.I saw him play ebelthite wow this match was strange.at 2 all in the first set marinko seemed to get a bad call,2 points later he yelled out "go back to your retirement home" a jibe aimed at the elderly lineswomen,he hot a code viloation for that then he called the umpire a "joke" which he got game penalty for to lose his serve.he losst th efirst 6-4.in the second set he got game penalty for hitting a ball out of the show court after ebelthite hit it back to him,he managed to get the break back but was again broken at 4 all,ebelthite served the match out.matosevic never really got into he didn tplay well at all.maybe it was his ilness or tired form 3 setter yesterday.

I doubt he'll get it. I'd be really happy to see it go to Marinko, but knowing Tennis Australia, they'll pick the wrong person.

Have to agree, am doubtful that Marinko will get a w/c as TA seem to be giving w/c's to younger players lately. Also am doubtful that Ebelthite would have got one if he had not won one.

hmmm Scott you seemed slighlty obsessed (or incredibly biased) with this guy


Sure he had a good win against Ball and performed well whilst being sick but what exactly has he done for the season (as a whole) to be selected for one of FOUR remaining MD WCs when the likes of Luczak/Ball/Klein/Groth are not even assured a spot. He is ranked behind all four of them, and he has only won ONE match at challenger level all season. Plus he is on the fringe of TA's age policy whereas Ball/Klein and Groth are all comfortably inside the age policy and ranked higher.

Matosevic should be awarded a place in quallies

OZTENNIS, in my opinion, i think recent form is what really counts. For example, Sirianni was in red hot form in the playoffs winning the playoffs and he ended up making the semis of adelaide and he cracked the top 150 (he could have potentially have cracked top 75 if he had consistency in results in challenger and atp tourneys. Those who make a great showing in the playoffs should get a wildcard main draw. But TA youth policy doesnt really take that into account. I hope Matosevic gets a wildcard maindraw

Yeah I think we all saw that Tennis Australia doesn't consider form when they left Coehlo out of the Wildcard Playoff.
