Marseille SF: Cilic def. Youzhny 6-2 1-6 7-5

In the first set Cilic played very good, especially on return. In the second set Misha started to serve very well, and also Marin's level of play dropped so it was an easy set for the Russian. Third set was a bit closer, but it always looked like Misha is going to take it, having break points in the first game, and finally breaking in the 5th.
Marin got back in the match when Misha choked serving for the match at 5-4 and then broke again at 6-5 to win the match. His first win ever over Misha and first final after a long time. Has to be mentioned he saved a MP being 3-5 down.

Really good from Cilic to come back and his reaction just says it all Just brilliant, really felt sorry for all that happened to him last year and so happy he's finally coming back.

Great guy is Marin

great first set from marin, then his fh went off the boil and youzhny really stepped it up
saved mp at 3-5 with an ace and then really really fought hard to clinch it

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Youzhny had match point at 5-3* 40-30.

Pretty high quality tennis anyway.

youzhny was very very passive after *5-4, and that payed him.
