Wawrinka is playing well. Cilic mugging it up with inconsistent play as usual.

Another extremely muggish match for Marin. I'm sick of that.

Unfortunately, constantly buffering streams didn't allow me to see all of the match, but I think it followed the usual pattern when it comes to Cilic - far too inconsistent for a player with his stature.

Wawa is in good form. Congrats!

Nice to see our Marin back to old habits . I was already worried that something is going wrong but hard work is always paying off

Better from Stan than against Davy.

Cilic is still meandering back towards form. Getting there, but prolly takes a while - he was essentially awol completely for a whole year after all. Consistency is as much an element to be found as forehand, serve, volleys, whatever. It'll come.

Thank god. Cilic-Berdych would have been unwatchable.

Thanks Mugrin, just when I gave you a little bit of credit, you do this. Last time I've made that mistake, that's for sure. I honestly think I haven't got one prediction right this week, except for the obvious Nadal, Djokovic matches. It's scary, some of you could really make money this week, just bet against whoever I'm saying

Really few players can deal with Cilic in this form . Serving out of this this world , missing every ball , choking big points and on those volleys even soderling would be proud... priceless stuff

Expected. Wawrinka is just the better player this year.
Hope he reaches the QF.
