If Haas beat Youzhny Marin will be 12. Then if he doesn't defend Queen's title he is out of top 12 seeds for Wimby. What a looser he is, disgusting.
Being seeded in top 12 didnt help him much so far. The thing is, there's a common opinion about Cilic that he's a top 10 talent and only need to sort his head out, and thats just not true. He deserves praise for getting this far, hes 11th, and there are a lot of players bellow him with far more potential and higher peak level.
I mean, if he admits that someone like Troicki beated him by just pushing, thats saying a lot about his shot making ability. Can anyone imagine Cilic playing a match like Gulbis - Nadal, or some other matches involving great shotmakers like Wawrinka - Djokovic and so on, to not name them. In he's early days, he was lacking consistency, but at least he was hitting the ball hard and with authority, and on a good day he was a threat. Nowdays, he lacks power and he's still inconsistent as ever. Every top player knows they can just keep the ball in play, and there's nothing Cilic can do about it. He has a embarrasing balance with top 20 players because of it.
And no, its not only his head, there are some bigger nutcases that can at least be a threat on some given days, Cilic is simply not a threat no matter how he plays.
I've always supported him, and will in the future, but after watching him for years, im utterly convinced he doesnt have anything big in him, under any circumstances. And thats fine.
