Toronto R3: Cilic sends Roddick home 6-4 4-6 6-4

Great job Marin!

Should have won in straight sets but had a big choke losing 4 straight games when he was 4-2 up in the 2nd set.

Toronto R3: Cilic ousts Roddick 6-4, 4-6, 6-4

Big win for Marin! He played really well today. He showed some nerves closing out the first set and blowing 4-2 in the second but got his act together immediately into the third.

Roddick, on the other hand, was atrocious. His only success came when Cilic got tight. Big opportunity lost for him with Fed out.

Cilic plays very good backhand from difficult positions

Re: Toronto R3: Cilic sends Roddick home 6-4 4-6 6-4

Winning that second set after being so close to losing it should have given Andy confidence, but he just wasn't consistent enough to stay in the rallies long enough. I'm a fan of Cilic so congrats to him. Andy, maybe you can fly with Federer to Cincy.
