Very bad draw in Cincinnati:

Tsonga(15) vs. Cilic
Ginepri vs. Qualifier
Qualifier vs. Nalbandian
Bye vs. Murray(4)

We can only hope Jo somehow wins against Djokovic and becomes too tired to continue his great run of form.

Brutal draw, it's why you want to be seeded
Two of my faves facing in R1 too

Why isn't Marin in any of the ELs after US Open? No Metz, no KL, no Bangkok...

Not sure but i think it has something to do with the Davis cup since Croatia plays South Africa after the US open. Perhaps he is just happy with his 2x 150 points from atp's 250 and will just play one more this season, later in October.

Anyway, yesterday serve was HORRIBLE and nothing much more to say. You can't win against top 10 player if you serve under 40% in the match. Luckily he has a very good 2nd serve so the score doesn't look that bad but he will really have to increase that percentage at the us open.

US open draw:

[3]Federer vs Giraldo
Sela vs Bellucci
Q vs Tomic
Harrison vs [27]Cilic

I guess 3rd round would be fine, can't expect more. Winning against Harrison and Tomic would mean he had a good tournament.

Bad draw for Marin. Harrison is up and coming. Tomic is a bad match up for Marin.

I disagree. Time to finally step it up again

Marin was trying so hard to gift 2nd and 3rd set but Harrison was not in a mood to take it. Marin was doing well until his nervousness stepped in. All in all not a bad match, it should give him some confidence. Tomic is next.

Default Re: 2011 hard court swing

i'm just happy that he stayed aggressive. as always, the serve and the low, mid-ct forehand let him down and were the only reason this was close

really impressed with how he was able to claw back the second and third sets

Default Re: 2011 hard court swing

Things that i tought were good:

- so many exits on the net, mostly successful (i think atleast 40-50 times)
- stayed aggresive and dictated most of the points
- he was very good on crucial points
- bp conversion
- number of winners
- made Harrison do alot of forced errors
- overall mentality, cheered himself on, stayed positive, reacted well under pressure

Things that could improve:

- got broken too many times
- could've won with an easier scoreline
- serve
- alot of unforced errors but it's to be expected, didn't really miss too many easy shots and that's what's important

Tomic next.

tomic will beat him easily. simply, tomic is better player. and his style doesn't suit to cilic at all. tomic can even beat federer. he can reach semis here. he has great talent and mentality. i espect alot of him in the future. especially on majors. marin...he was in same position 3 whole 3 years ago. that is pathetic. he has really tough draw. he would play vs federer after tomic.
