Cilic suddenly rediscovers some form

And the best indication is that he won a TB

It was 6-1 in the third. And yes, he won a TB
Finally he seems to be getting back in form, honestly I was worried about this match, Marin doesn't like playing against players like Giraldo.

Cilic's first set won after saving a set point since Dubai '10 Not a big surprise this drought came to an end against a choker like Giraldo

Getting there Marin, getting there

I've heard a national holdiay is penciled in for winning that TB

Cilic peaking for his 6 good days a year.... not sure if he wants to waste them on Giraldo though.

Giraldo

I had a feeling Cilic would be too strong for Giraldo, and unfortunately I was right.. Still, Santi has had some good last few weeks now. I hope he can keep it going. VAMOS!

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Not yet, but closer. If Stepanek beats Isner, that will be a good test

Good win for Marin. I am very happy for him. Sadly, his run ends in 4th round vs. Nadal
