cilic has been rolling but clay is not his best surface. Murray has to struggle more (albeit against better competition). Big chance for both players. Who will advance to he quarterfinals?

RG 2005. Junior semifinal: Čilić - Murray 7:5 6:3. Can Marin repeat it? Lets hope so:)

Murray in 3. People have been predicting a Murray loss for 3 rounds now. I said each time that it was wishful thinking. First time Murray has a chance of going out is against Gonzo.

Only thing I know is that if Cilic gets to 5-1 in a set Murray will do a Murray-comeback. So he better not get greedy, try to get in a position where you serve out the set with only one break, 2 breaks and Murray will get pumped on to do his crazy comebacks.

i am not a fan of cilic's game but that type of play that murray plays suits to cilic , murray is to passive and his balls are short , cilic only need to play solid match , nothing special and he will have a chance. murray is average clay court player...

Murray has been much, much more aggresive at RG than his last few tournaments. We will see. I'm hoping for a great entertaining match.

Cilic can't beat top players, have to go with Murray here.

Tough one either Dullic puts on a good performance and Andy wins in 5. Or Andy pulls out a Chela esque performance and wins in 3.

Hoping for the latter....

Murray wins, unless he does a Stepanek and makes over 3x as many UEs as winners.

Cilic is a choker - he was even choking today against Steps when two sets and a break up. Gets to deuce, wild mis-hit. Tiebreak: double fault, mis-hits galore. I've seen him double fault twice on match points in recent months. The forehand is a liability under any pressure.

Cilic is a choker. Murray is a warrior.

its not about who is a choker and who is a warrior.
Cilic have a solid mentality.
its about class

Cilic is on fire and Murray is a clay mug BUT Murray will crush Ciclic in the battle of the minds and will, so it'll be Murray in 3, 4 tops. Though I'd like Cilic to win.

Not much of a solid mentality when he was bagelled by Fognini in Monte Carlo. Or double faulted at matchpoint against Delic in Miami, before losing the tiebreak.

well it can happend to anyone(Fog beagel not included)
overall he is a fighter

ofcourse he plays a high risk game...and when out of his confort zone makes ton of UE..but that have nothing to do with his mentality...more with his playing style:shrug:

Murray will enjoy the pace...doubt Cilic will play with controlled agression he likes to go for the winners

Cilic is gonna smack Murray a new one in Paris, like in the juniors, you heard it here first.

Murray is way overrated on clay, if Cilic keeps on his hitting like he did in the 1st couple of rounds he should clinch this; the key for a win is a good 1st serve percentage, at least 55%, if he does that he is through.....
