CH Dallas R2: Cilic def. Rosol 6-0 7-6(2)
Better match from Marin than yesterday vs Bolelli. Not great, but solid. He got out to a 6-0 3-0 lead and then things got interesting. Cilic's serve declined and Rosol started to have more opportunity to get into rallies and crack the ball. He was a lot more consistent in the second set and made Cilic work for it, until the tiebreak where he leaked errors and Marin was solid.
Marin isn't playing amazingly well in any department but he's hitting the ball solidly overall, minimizing mistakes in windy conditions and has out-solidified his two opponents thus far, although that's not hard to do given he played Rosol and Bolelli. This tournament is good for him to gain a rhythm and he's doing just that.
