Miami R3: [9] Cilic d. [20] Isner 6-3 7-6(3)

Cilic likes this match up (3-0 head to head) and is finally performing in tiebreakers (he's won his last 6). Tsonga next.

Cilic might be a mug, but at least he dominated ugly American tennis.

Cilic likes big servers- his ROS is excellent and he dealt with Isner's serve effectively.

unbiased analyst extraordinaire

Isner's 9-0 2013 TB run stopped by the so called TB mug. Well done Marin
Easy and expected win, 3-0 H2H against Isner now.

Croatia gets its revenge.

I think I'm starting to like the unibrow.

Re: Miami R3: [9] Cilic d. [20] Isner 6-3 7-6(3)

Expected result, Cilic is probably the best ever returner of serve for a guy his size and that's pretty much what Isner's game comes down to. He's also unaffected by the kicker due to his height, so a good matchup for him all in all.

Should be a good match with Tsonga in the next round.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Great to see serve bot lose even if it means Mugrin advancing

Isner's physique and game style plays right into Cilic's hand. Easy pickings for Cilic and NID.

Re: Miami R3: [9] Cilic d. [20] Isner 6-3 7-6(3)

this wasn't nearly as close as the score suggests. when isner didn't hit an ace, cilic was winning about 65% of the return points...
ump didn't save him this time

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Thank you Mr. Marin, Isner is a nightmare for Tsonga. Tomorrow should be an enjoyable match.

But no athlete had the year Novak Djokovic had. No athlete was as consistently superb, January through November. No athlete was as complete in all the aspects of his or her game (...) the best on all surfaces: indoors and out, hardcourt, clay, and grass. No athlete, week in and week out, faced the level of competition he did: men’s professional tennis, as gets said at the start of every big televised match—because it’s true—is in a golden age. (...) And while Federer had some year (2006), he accumulated only about half the A.T.P. point total Djokovic just amassed.
