Chennai R1: Nishikori def. Cilic 4-6 7-6(0) 6-2

Even I didn't see this one coming but it's always pleasure to see Marin digging deep . Year after year he is more and more stronger . Guy is like old wine . All this time in off-season without Marin is paid off in just one match . Priceless . World needs more guys like Marin . So innocent and so dangerous at the same time

"Tie-break king" strikes back The end of Cilic's hegemony in combo Chennai-Zagreb after two years.

kei

but i dont have any idea what happened to marin

lost the tiebreak 7-0 then did not earn 1 single point on return in that 3rd set, every single one of kei's service games were to love.

i dont know what has hapopened to marin but he's on his way to a MASSIVE drop if he doesnt figure things out and quickly

Nishikori saved 5 break points at 5-5 in the 2nd set. Well actually he didn't 'save' them, Cilic just fucked them up.

Cilic had no legs in the end.

After 2.5 hours.

In the first match of the year.

I hope for his sake he's actually injured because if he's fatigued after this already, it's not a good sign

Kei - love the fight in this guy, he never knows when he's beaten.

No need to be sad Marin. You can't win every time . The future is yours

Missing 8 bps in the 2nd and then lose the TB 7-0 and didn't get a single point on return in the 3rd. Nice one, Marin. Drop in the rankings, and even further in the next weeks.

In a smaller scale repeat of their match at the US Open '10 when Kei won 5-7, 7-6, 3-6, 7-6, 6-1, he saved then mini-MP at 4:4 in the 4th set.

Agreed - I don't know when exactly he ripped the head off the babies and ate them, I must have missed that one, cos it's not really deserved. He seems like a sweet guy who's going through an awful slump.
