AO SF: Who's making the final? [14] Marin Cilic v [5] Andy Murray

Who will win this interesting encounter? Marin won in straight sets when they met at the US Open last year, but Andy is playing far, far better now...

Gotta go with Murray here...but Cilic is unpredictable and this easily could be another 5 set marathon

Heart says Cilic in 5, but mind says Murray in 4.

It's hard to bet against Murray the way he played that first set. Granted, he won't hit Cilic off the court like he did to Rafa, but he was spot on tonight.

Re: AO SF: Who's making the final? [14] Marin Cilic v [5] Andy Murray

It should be an interesting match. Cilic has to be tired but he's young and should regroup after two 5-setters in a row. He has slighlty a mental adventage over Murray because beat him easily at the US Open. I think his reaction after today's win is a little bit disquieting, he reacted like he won a Grand Slam event. He's very consistent in improving, had a couple 4th round loses, then finally advanced to the quarters, now first semifinal. Maybe he's already fulfilled?

I expect Murray in 4 but without signs of Cilic's physical tiredness.

Everything points towards Murray - played better overall in the tournament, Cilic has been on court roughly twice the amount of time Murray has, etc. - but I have a feeling Cilic will win.

Re: AO SF: Who's making the final? [14] Marin Cilic v [5] Andy Murray

Not sure why but I voted Cilic in 5. I actually think Murray will win & get revenge of sorts for the USO. Will be interesting to see if Murray can keep his level up & not have a let down seeing as he's clear favourite to get to the final (he's in great form, beaten some top players already, not dropped a set, Cilic has had to expend a lot of energy already etc).

Could see him losing a set but I don't seriously see him losing the match. No explanation then as to why I voted Cilic in 5, maybe just wishful thinking

Re: AO SF: Who's making the final? [14] Marin Cilic v [5] Andy Murray

I cant say. Half of me think Murray in straights the other half of me thinks Murray might let himself down here, either way Cilic is surely to tired, and if it goes long Andy becomes the favorite.

Go Andy!

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

Chill out man

Rafa wouldn't want you to be upset

Anyway I actually don't know who wins this. Could go either way. Cilic is dangerous.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
