exactly as Berdych was until 2010.

Cilic is 3 years younger and at the moment, it seems likely that the competition will be less and less strong in next years

I didn't watch their match in Munich but in Marseilles in the beginning of 2011 they had a match which looked as a turning point for him just as you say it (actually there have been several dramatic Cilic-Youzhny matches )

He's been very dependent on confidence so far, I think that maturity will help him in that regard.

Fair point - although Berdy had won a masters back in prehistory. Even if it wasn't the strongest field, it's a decent confidence booster.

Re: Marin Cilic will be permanent top 10 player

cilic being permanently in the top 10 would be an embarrassment for tennis' global marketability

perhaps he would be a worthy top 10 in 1912

in these modern times, it would be a travesty

maybe cilic should start crack. it certainly couldn't make his serve any worse, or his groundstrokes any less penetrating

There's a very good chance that Cilic will be the only non-top 8 seed in the 2012 USO QF.

No, Clitic will never be a top tenner (unless you mean the WTA top ten, where his ultra-chicken-shit choke ass belongs).

Re: Marin Cilic will be permanent top 10 player

I have to agree with majority here on forum; Marin is still...

Facts;

6-3, 5-1 score
* Set point wasted on his serve, 2nd set, score 5-2. Point lasted 14 shoots.
* Served twice to win 2ns set, failed.
* Despite all, had 4-2 in 2nd set tie-break just to lose next 5 points and 2nd set.
* Fall apart completely, after 2nd set and score in 3rd 2-1, losing 11 straight games.

Cilic said;

" I was fighting, giving my very best to stay in the match.It wasn't easy.Murray kept
on putting more and more pressure and simply I lost all my strenght playing my own service games.
I didn't manage to do, what I did 3 Years ago here, winning 6-2, 6-2, in 2nd and 3rd set, which was surprise for me too.
This match showed that youcannot give Murray a chance to come back into match.When he came back; he didn't
give me anymore a chance at all."


Well... enough said.

Re: Marin Cilic will be permanent top 10 player

murray saved tennis by preventing cilic from reaching a SF. now he must save tennis once again by defeating berdych, who is coming down from the high of his victory over federer (it's like a slam win for him)

tough ask for murray, but he'll get the job done, solid in the clutch
