Well done, Marin. That game at 5-5 was an epic chokefest, but two awesome winners to close out the match

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Crisis averted. Luckily Cilic could win the 3rd.

Got some luck with Seppi choking serving for the set at 5*-4 and DF on BP

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Very good performance, too bad he couldn't do it in Australia. Well done and now hopefully Dodig finishes the job.

Dedicated to all the Croats who hoped Marin would lose.

Seppi
Cilic was the better player for 2 sets, but Seppi choked that 3rd set pretty hard.

this tie has been quite a WAR -in the best of senses. Expected in my eyes as Seppi hasn't been sharp this weekend at all and Cilic is just a level above, being very honest and that's no secret.

up next a very nervewracking 5th rubber... Bolelli should be the one playing IMO but Barazzutti is sticking with a not-so-fit Fogna so it could be very close.

Amazing that Cilic could keep it simple after playing two long matches. He's also quite a good DC player. Sad for Seppi though, if he had made the match a bit longer he could have had a chance.

Can't believe this finished in 3 sets.
Surely the 5th rubber going to 5

A straightforward win It's a shame he couldn't do this in Australia, but oh well, hope Marin has enough in the tank to challenge for the title in Zagreb next week.
