I was quite happy with the way he played, way to go Marin!

Picture of the match stats is in attachment. He was quite solid (specially play after 1st serve). Also quite a good number of winners for clay, but it was mostly the forced errors from Volandri in stronger rallies that won him the match.

Almost every time rally went over 5 shots Marin won it either by a winner or by forcing Volandri into an error. He should use that strong rallying against many players and not always go for the winners if it's not working, since for me he is solid in staying in the point against any player if he tries to.

I would personally prefer Riba in the next round but hopefuly Starace is tired so he shouldn't be a threat either.

nice win for cilic...strange to see a match where his opponent have more UEs then he 2nd round will be tough, both are clay specialists but I think that marin can win if he play focused on his serve

Marin plays Pere Riba not before 1230 monaco time on court two which isnt televised
it says possible court change but I doubt it

Good Luck anyway Hope he gets to round three to meet federer.

Well done. I think he had break point(s) in every Riba's serve game before he retired. Good % of first serve in, not many played but still.

Gl Marin.

Default Re: Marin's clay season 2011.

Not a bad match from Marin just Federer is Federer. Nice gesture at the end from Roger who told to Marin: "have a good season".

In first set he only lost one serve at 4-5 with a mistake he shouldn't have made at 30-40. He didn't play too well on the return and had only 38% of first serve in and still held himself well in the match up to that point.

In second set similar situation, one break of serve. He won more points on Federer's serve then in first (also had one break point) but didn't manage to break him. On the service game where he lost his serve he didn't have a chance since Federer played a good point.

Unless some miracle happens he will improve his rank from 22 to 21 on monday.

21 22 Cilic 90 1495 90


Next tournament in Rome is the only one where he doesn't defend any points (well, 10 but that's how much you get for R1 loss anyway) so it's a good chance to get some fat skin for future.

Default Re: Marin's clay season 2011.

Munich time, here is the draw:


[1] Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) - [WC] Matthias Bachinger (GER)
Ivan Dodig (CRO) - Philipp Petzschner (GER)
Jan Hajek (CZE) - Potito Starace (ITA)
Denis Istomin (UZB) - [6] Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)

[4] Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) - Julien Benneteau (FRA)
Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) - [WC] Andreas Beck (GER)
Teimuraz Gabashvili (RUS) - Rainer Schuettler (GER)
Qualifier - [5] Florian Mayer (GER)

[7] Nikolay Davydenko (RUS) - Qualifier
Qualifier - Daniel Brands (GER)
Robert Kendrick (USA) - Horacio Zeballos (ARG)
Simone Bolelli (ITA) - [3] Marin Cilic (CRO)

[8] Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) - Qualifier
Robin Haase (NED) - Jarkko Nieminen (FIN)
Radek Stepanek (CZE) - Andrey Golubev (KAZ)
[WC] Dustin Brown (GER) - [2] Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI)

I think he has good first two opponents to warm up and then win against Davy. I'm expecting atleast semis here!

I like Marin but Simone needs the win badly and I hope he wins it! But I expect Marin to. If he does then I hope Marin goes deep here and shuts up haters on general messages
