RG R3: Delpo def. Cilic 6-3 7-6(7) 6-1

i was already afraid that 2012 Maya people curse gonna happen. Delpo was serving for second set, had 5 set points at 6-5(0-40 and 2 advantages), had double mini break in tie breaker, Cilic turned it around,was probably a point from winning by retirement and then peak MC showed up, had 6-4 but shanked and easy backhand on his own set point and another easy miss on delpo's set point. One highlight smash in third set should be play of the day at CNN, nobody else except MC isn't capable to produce a shot of such greatness .

delpo obviously struggling with injury but still too much for the biggest artist between losers at ATP

Del Potro def. Del Potro's brain damaged clone, expected, nothing to see here.

Cilic frustrating as usual, saved 6 set points, had a double set point on his own and didn't show any signs of tremendous will to win this set to shift the momentum. Perhaps Del Potro could win the 2nd set earlier if the opponent wasn't Cilic.

That 2nd set was awful from Cilic. Still had no idea how JMDP could pull this off in three sets

Delpo's knee is much better. I expected him to be fit vs Berdych

Indeed disappointing from Marin. So many comebacks and saved set points in the 2nd set only to lose it like that.
In the first set Del Potro served really well, and Marin threw in two bad service games, and in the third set he just fell apart.
No signs of Delpo's injury today, and a shame Marin had to face him again.

Similar thing happened at Monte Carlo against berdych where Cilic saved triple set point in two games only to lose the last four points since 3:3 in the tie-break. That's a difference between him and Del Potro and Berdych (so players with comparable potential) - he isn't capable to make amazing things in terms of mental stamina.
