It will be tough against Cilic if he is serving and volleying well. Plus Marin moves well for a tall guy. But either way good luck. Nice start to the year for him.

Totally agree. No fairy tale ending here;) The real plus for Somdev is his mental fortitude and confidence.

They announced Rainer's withdrawal on the stream and talked to Somdev about it and the final

just found another German news on teletext which has quotes from Rainer about HIS withdrawal. So Somdev is in the final!
Stupid Eurosport, they have so many mistakes in their newsmessages

Intriguing, but it would be a real surprise if Cilic lost. Not sure how the Croat will deal with the 'favourite' tag for the final, but he'll have to get used to it this season.

The USTA was right...Somdev didn't deserve a wild card into last year's U.S. Open:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: Idiots:mad:

damn it, i first read Schuettler is in the final, but now this :( I really want Rainer to gain some more success in smaller tournaments as he won´t defend his SF in Wimbledon

Too bad it had to be like this, but I'm thrilled for Somdev. I've long had a "feeling" about this kid.
