WWW? Shanghai QF: [4] Cilic vs. Ramos Viñolas

I thought this was a piece of cake, but found out the H2H actually is only 3-2 in Cilic's favor, with Ramos already beating him in this tournament a few years back.

Thoughts?

Ramos was named here as a bye in this tournament, so he will be GOAT if he wins 4 matches here.

Support:

Offensive baseliners: Klizan, Bellucci, Thiem, Djokovic, Wawrinka, Del Potro, Gulbis

Players with great touch and others: Federer, Mahut, Goffin, Gombos, Mannarino, Bollelli, Bautista-Agut, M. Zverev

Vinolas peaks in Shanghai. Hopefully he prevails here and plays Rafa in the SF. There's been way too much botting this tournament, the fans deserve a match between 2 supreme baseliners.

Mentally less stable player must win here to save tennis.

I saved tennis once, at my local club. Didn't get much recognition for it though

If Cilic peaks and shows US Open 2014 game (very unlikely) he will of course be winning his second masters title. So would be great for him to make it to semifinals

To destroy Ramos he doesnt need to find his best game, he just needs to be solid. Ramos is mentally strong and peaks here so I wager this will be a close match.

Winning here will give him just one more step to WTF qualification I think -- current cutoff is 3665, and a Final here gives him 3775 (which actually overtakes Domi).

A win tomorrow guarantees Cilic a new CHR of #4. Hopefully that will be enough motivation
