Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

Cilic to fight, or drop the soap like he usually does in this match-up?

Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

Cilic looks in good form but surely he carries too much mental baggage into this match up. I expect he might take the first set at least though.

Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

Cilic in three. Don't thnk Murray is competitive enough right now, but the clay season is his priority, and he won't mind losing this one.

Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

Whatever happens, just hope it's not like the US Open match. Better to lose in easy 2 than completely dominating the match before having the meltdown of the century

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

Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

If Murray plays like in Dimitrov match Marin will have a good chance, that is if his brain doesn't take a walk

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

This Cilic guy is forever mentally scarred by that US Open match - was one of the greatest choke in tennis history. I expect a double bagel by Windray in this match.

Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

Marin will murder Murray's serve with his ROS, but IMO it won't be enough to win the match. Murray owns Marin's brain unfortunately so even if he gets in a winning position he'll most probably choke once again.

Re: WWW Miami QF: Murray Vs Cilic

Marin's propensity for choking will be irrelevant in this match.

Murray to routine this guy in something like 7-5, 6-4.

I would rather see him lose 6-0 6-0 than relive The Match That Will Not Be Named.

Same here tbh. Cannot think of a worst tennis watching memory than that match, undescribable stuff. It surpasses even Almagro's choke vs Ferrer at AO this year because he choke from tight scoreline positions, while Cilic was absolutely obliterating Murray before totally losing the plot when serving to go 2-0 up. Worst part was as soon he made the first two DFs you could almost guess what was about to transpire.

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