Pippo is a clay-only player, so no surprise he skips Indian Wells for this event. He actually has a better opportunity to gain points here than he would at either IW or Miami.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

So obviously, Marco vs Pippo makes me sad. Then the winner to play (hopefully) Hajek, so that's already three of my favorites right there. But I'm not overly upset because I expected something like this given the depth of the field and how many of my favorites were in the draw. I want Jan to win either this event or Marrakech. He's my main focus through this Moroccan series events. I'm going to have to root against Pippo and hope he loses to either Gicquel or Hajek.

The second section to me is the toughest. Ungur v Lojda, Haider-Maurer v Munoz De La Nava and Kuznetsov v DelBonis. I would like to see Fede continue to build on his good form this season and make it through. I think it's wide open but probably Ungur is the favorite.

DGT lucked out majorly. Qualifier in R1, then a WC/Q in R2. But with his form he can easily lose to the qualifier. Hopefully he can make at least the semifinals but I think Donskoy will make it from that section. Maybe Carreno will find some form and do damage here.

Bedene I think has a good shot at the SF because Riba is in bad form and questionable health and the other players are not imposing. I definitely want Greul to win that section, though, since he's been sucking so badly and desperately needs points, but also would like to see Pere or Giannessi winning it.

Anyway, I hope Jan wins this event. And then wins Marrakech too. That would be the best for me, and he would be top 100 again.

Marco looks like TOTAL shit. I can see why his results have been poor this season. Pippo is playing pretty well, too many double faults, though.
