Murray did absolutely nothing to turn the match around. Cilic's lack of fitness was a disgrace.

Re: USO QF: Andy Murray kicks Marin Cilic back to Croatia 3-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-0

Murray completes the 'Cilic Slam'.

Cilic played great till 6-3 5-1 albeit Murray's attitude was DISGUSTING. But when he broke for *3-5 it all changed and the momentum swung. No excuse for Cilic to blame tiredness cause he thrashed Klizan two days ago. He went down without a fight in the third and fourth and that's a little disappointing to see, too akin to Tomic the other day.

Now for Federer-Berdych. Djokovic is fave for the title now easily cos I don't see Del Potro in current form, or Ferrer-Tips getting close to it while Fed-Berdych will have to beat each other and then Murray (who will have to beat the winner and then take on Nole a day later)

That was such a NID match (but still 5-1 up ). Every time Cilic got an oppurtunity after set 2, it was like "NID". Every time it got to a rally it as "NID" Cilic will make an error because the pressure is too much for him. And the worst thing is that Cilic was actually returning pretty well.

The word 'choke' is overused on this forum but this really was a terrible choke by Marin, one of the worst I've seen. Was obviously nervous as hell trying to serve out the 2nd set and just couldn't get over the line. Then went to pieces.

Muzza started slow coz he seems to like to create some drama for himself in these matches

but when it was time to go to work he just dismantled his ass with consummate ease

and the Djoko fans all left the live score thread in tantrums and tears at Marin, they had been so excited at set and 5-1

Come on, NOW

Re: USO QF: Andy Murray d. Marin Cilic 3-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-0

This match reminds me of the AO semifinals in 2010 between these two.
Cilic started well and had Andy right where he wanted him and then, Andy pulled his usual antics of waking up in the middle of the second set and that's all she wrote.

However, that match preceded a pretty embarrassing beatdown to Roger Federer in the AO 2010 final.
Is he destined to tank his next match with Roger?

Murray should have been 2 sets down. He had no earthly right to win that second set - horrendous choke from Marin.

In any case, Murray took advantage and once the scores were back level, Cilic folded in spectacular fashion.

That really wasn't good enough Andy, or it shouldn't have been. Lucky one.

I would like to take back anything positive I have ever said about Cilic, even in passing

Disgusting stuff. Mandy is a joke, can't believe he has any fans outside of Scotland. This challenger level draw of his is about to come to an end, though. Looking forward to this pusher getting hammered by Olderer/Djoker. I kinda wish this mug got another RU plate so Mandy fans are experience more anguish.
