Just over 3 hours, and pretty much identical stats from both as well.

Unreal from Troicki :-)

Served for the first set, broken.

Had **6-5 in the 1st set tiebreak, lost all 3 remaining points.

Had **6-3 in the 3rd set tiebreak, lost all 5 remaining points.

Troiki's a wimp. When you're up 6-3 you put them away. Kind of like the Wimbledon 2009 F in the 2nd set, Roborod had a chance to go up 2 sets to love and had a 6-2 lead in the tiebreaker.

Only Marin can do this. He was break up in second and third set but he almost lose it .
Impossible is nothing for him .

That's about as close it can get.
Troicki obviously had the best chances but blew them all. Congrats, Cilic!

Re: Basel R2: Cilic def Troicki 7-6(7) 6-7(8) 7-6(6)

Very important win for Cilic, his first win after saving MP and first win in the final set tie-break. Troicki saved MP in the 2nd set and was 1:4 down in the third, 5:6 (0-30). It would have been amazing win for Troicki but wasted triple match point with two services! Troicki is now 0-3 in MP saved matches.
Cilic improves his mentality playing against Troicki. Two matches when was the closest to lose and won were against Troicki, previous one a year ago in Chennai: Cilic won 3-6 7-6(6) 6-1.

Cilic, great fight back although I am not sure it was worth it. Judging by the ups and downs the play was nothing to be proud of

Troicki's first serve abandoned him at crucial points. He needs to control his nerve.

Marin Cilic has beaten the best. That Troicki is able to challenge Cilic now is very good. Too bad the match was not televised. Must have been exciting.
