AO 2R: Cilic squeaks by Tomic, 6-7(8) 6-3 4-6 6-2 6-4

Marin

I intensely dislike Tomic but there's no question he has heaps of talents and will be a very good player.

Cilic-Wawa should be interesting.

Cilic with one of the worst performances I've ever seen. Absolute shocker.

Cilic was awfully crappy. Tomic was really impressive.

Tomic was fun to watch, he reminds me a little of a Santoro with slicey dicey angles and mix ups. A player without the mass talent to win big ones but the ability to entertain.

Tomic really reminds of Murray, especially when he was younger... changing pace, slicing and dicing, frustrating the opponent. He really (and the crowd) really had Cilic on the ropes, good for Cilic that he managed to get the win under huge pressure.

Tomic has an old-school vibe about his forehand. Some of the short ones looked like Stepanek's IMO.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

The only good thing Cilic there was those big serves on those bp's at *3-4, otherwise he played awful.

Tomic had a good effort out there, played tricky, wish he'd won.

Tomic

Can take alot from this though. He's young, in time he'll learn to win matches like this. Was a good sign that he was physically okay for 5 sets, probably his first 4 hour match, or however long it went for.

Hes definately got talent

A mugathon for the books. Please don't put us thorough that pushing terror from the first two sets ever again Marin. A lot more will be needed for Stan, he's no Tomic, who should have been bitchslapped 3,2,1.

Tomic is a mug and annoying one at that. I doubt either will change as he matures.

Well done to Cilic, glad him and DelPo are tiring themselves out early

Tomic was impressive I think he needs to copy what Murray did and get fitter and stronger If he does see no reason why he can't be at least top 20.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013
