Cilic one win away from top ten

Cilic, currently at #14, will move up to at least #12 next week. If he beats Roddick today he'll move up to #10. If he beats Roddick and Tsonga loses to Djokovic, Cilic will be #9.

And if it doesn't happen next week it'll probably happen soon. He has 150 next-best points in case he doesn't defend Zagreb next week, and at the next two Masters 1000 tournaments (IW and Miami) he's defending only 90 points.

Re: Cilic one win away from top ten

Will be glad to see Marin in top 10, he deserves it. He can definitively add variety to his game over the next few months. Someone somewhere mentioned that Roddick has been bothered slightly with his injured knee (not familiar with the validity of the information tho), so if that's true, his chance to progress to the SF is even better now. Potential victory over Roddick would probably instigate further good results this year.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: Cilic one win away from top ten

It was just a matter of time... We all know he's a top 5 material, he can probably even achieve more than that, but let's wait and see.

Re: Cilic one win away from top ten

Marin Cilic, a better version of Del Potro, lets see if he can actually win a slam someday though, and stop with those mental break downs.

I wouldn't go that far yet. Del Potro still has a better forehand and serve....though obviously Cilic and Del Potro both can improve their serves considerably due to their height.

Also, thus far Del Potro has shown that even when he isn't playing his best, he can grind and stay close in matches, then make big shots in big moments and still win. Cilic is still a streaky player who is unplayable when on, and pretty bad when off.

2 years ago it was Murray....last year it was Del Potro....this year it will be Cilic making his run at the US Open and solidifying his spot among the top players.

Del Potro's forehand is really inconsistent, he finally got it together late last year but its known to break down on him. If Del Potro did not win the US open last year would you be saying all those positives about him that you have?

I personally would say the same stuff, because that is what i've seen from him. But obviously winning the Slam showed that he is one of the few in today's game that has the guts to do it....so that does improve him significantly in my eyes. Lots of players have a big enough game, but Del Potro showed that he is tough enough mentally to get it done.

I definitely take a fully healthy Del Potro over Cilic right now.

Re: Cilic one win away from top ten

Cilic might be our surprise finalist this year. I'm horribly conflicted, though, as Roddick is my favorite player.

wat.
