Is it possible that there's no cheering thread for Roko?!? Well, if that's the case, then I'm starting one!

After qualifying for the 2008 AO and then reaching the QF of the Heilbronn challenger (he beat Berrer in the second round), he will reach a new career-high ranking when the January 28 rankings come out. Go, Roko!!!

He struggled against Zib, I thought he might have a problem with Peya
This win is impressive
Good luck in QF :)

Having reached the QF at Belgrade, Roko might reach a new career-high ranking next week (for sure if he reaches the SF). He doesn't have many points to defend over the next 2-3 months, so it's very possible that he'll break into the top 100 for the first time.

If that happens, and since Ancic will probably be back in the top 100 soon (if he remains healthy). there would be five Croats in the top 100. That would be impressive! I believe the record is four, which happened recently when Ljubicic, Karlovic, Cilic and Ancic were all among the top 100 at the same time.

Now that he's in the SF, Roko is guaranteed to have a new career-high ranking, somewhere around 110-115. If he wins his next match, he'll move up to around 105. What's even better, he doesn't have many points to defend through the end of May (only 66).

Wow Roko :eek: I am surprised, but well done! I've heard the surface in Belgrade is very fast... this is definitely in his favour.
