Great match from both. Marin is starting to look like a contender for great things finally

Dedicated to all those clowns who have understimated this hell of a player. You know who you are

AO R4: [14]Cilic def. [4]Del Potro 5-7, 6-4, 7-5, 5-7, 6-3

Incredibly hard fought match, both mentally and physically....for BOTH players. Lots of brain cramps, lots of wacky errors, lots of noise from the crowd....lots of everything.

Can't remember if it was the 3rd or the 4th, but Cilic blew 7 BP opportunities in a single set and several in a single game in that set.

Very determined, this man Cilic.

What a joke this Del Potro is. No effort at all.

Brilliant match. Cilic was immense. At his height, he has no right to move as well as he does. Can't say enough about that performance.

People will probably come up with the usual Del Potro excuses. There was nothing wrong with Del Potro, just the usual pained expressions as if to signal to people that he was physically spent. He needs to cut that shit right out.

Great fight, great finish, only question is how bad was Delpo hurt really? The guy is becoming a master of looking like hes going to pass out any second.

He and Del Potro are the same height and size, yet he looks like the lighter, faster player, great movement not only side to side, but from the back of the court to the net, blazing speed, great volleys.

Besides the mental aspect which he needs to work on, are we seeing a better version of Delpo in the making?

Cilic was the better player, but very erratic stuff from both men. I doubt Cilic can beat Roddick tbh.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Good for the game, the elite enlarges With wins during last 5 months over Murray, Davydenko, Nadal and Del Potro, Cilic confirms his aspirations to be a part of "Big 7".
