Monte Carlo QF: [15]Ramos def. [6]Cilic 6-2 6-7(5) 6-2

Ramos was up a set, break and 5-3 up in TB. Cilic somehow snatched the set and started with a 2-0 lead in the third before accepting a bagel to finish the match.

Remarkable run for Ramos, beating Andy and Marin for a SF berth.

Cuevas or Pouille next, so a final is possible.

it should be a pretty nice SF. All of them have played great from what I've seen. So I don't mind how this half has 'collapsed' - the best players by form are winning. Just hope ARV has enough stamina. I favour Pablo to make the final but who knows, free cake for all.

Strange match. Cilic was on fire for a short period but overall made far too many UE (50+) which handed Ramos the match.

Can't understand Marin's psychic at times ... really can't. Had golden chance for another Masters final, but ...

On the other side, we will have ARV, Pouille or Cuevas as Masters finalist

Ramos did well to keep steady mentally. Can't have been easy to fail to serve it out, blow a minibreak in the TB then quickly go 2-0 down in the 3rd.

Federer had Wawrinka and Nadal in his M1000 finals yet someone else will get Ramos, Cuevas or Pouille. Fed is so unlucky.

Anyway painful match to watch for the patches I saw.

The problem with all these guys is that they are unreliable. Today they are dominating, tomorrow they check out regardless of their opponents. Cuevas-Poullie has a potential to be the best QF quality-wise, but could also be a total flop.

Looking forward: we have a first time finalist. Would be very interesting if Nole manages to stop Nadal. Because I doubt Rafa will have any issues with either of them, but Nole is a different story. He's not been having the best of time against grinders here.

Damn it! I wanted either Murray or Cilic to reach the semis. But I suppose it doesn't matter who finishes runner-up. Nadal is winning this tournament.

and he was almost down a double break in the third too.
Quite an amazing two matches of mental strength and willpower to fight against deficits against players like Murray and Cilic no less.

Re: Monte Carlo QF: [15]Ramos def. [6]Cilic 6-2 6-7(5) 6-2

To tell the truth I wasn't shocked that Ramos may be winning this, and yet thought Cilic would at least push this to a 3-Setter. He did though when he seemed to start GOATing at 4-5* 2nd Set, and was able to hold himself to win that 2nd Set on a TB from a mini-break down. Ramos wavered and dropped an early serve but after that it seemed Cilic's Burst Mode of hitting deep strokes and winners without much errors evaporated and reverted back to the early match Cilic. Great run by Ramos to have 2 Top 10 wins on the same tournament, and I don't think anyone would begrudge him if he wins.
