Miami R4: Cilic def. Tsonga 7-5 7-6(4)

As expected, Marin reaches the QF
He had one abysmal game, first game of the second set when he lost serve the only time in the match. Other than that, he was very solid, didn't make a lot of his infamous unforced errors, kept the ball in play, hit it nicely and let Tsonga self-destruct. Marin just too good.

Oh, and: [Warning: Clown alert]

Good win for Cilic. His ROS looks excellent. Good opportunity for him in a TMS to go deep. Poor from Jo, mind you.

Tsonga was 2:0 up in second set, then had three break points at 3:3 *0:40. second set should be his but he clowed it away

I think Cilic could finish this year in the top 8.

Marin
He was better player today. Better serving, better receiving, better moving, better at net, better at baseline an still only 7-5 7-6. Deserving result. But he has no chance against Mister Pusher.

I prefer Tsonga but I was kinda rooting for Cilic here, just because he is is clearly better right now

Better player won, Tsonga has been hopeless for how long now?

Actually didn't feel like Cilic did anything special. Lost a whole bunch of long rallies that he shouldn't have.

Re: Miami R4: Cilic def. Tsonga 7-5 7-6(4)

Nice from Cilic, Tsonga was too erratic and couldn't cope with Marin's consistently excellent returning. Hope he can do something vs Murray tomorrow, it is certainly possible if the mental scars from last year's USO debacle aren't too big.

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

Murray awaits in the quarter finals, will Marin bend over for him or will he go up a set and choke away the match?
