Classic Flo Mayer, plays well on the grass but doesn't like to play too much on it.

There was a possibility that Cilic would play Ljubicic in the 3rd round, but neither managed to even win a set today against not so good opponents :o

Excellent performance from Flo, very poor from Marin. Couldn't find a return to save his life, couldn't take control of the rallies and cya :sad:

From the little I saw of it, it was a comprehensive beat down for Flo, the scoreline doesn't indicate how much Cilic was dominated.

Did anyone see the match fully?

06-21-2010, 04:44 PM
What is with Cilic?

He was poor in the clay season, he was crap at Queens, but on grass it should suit his game and he should be able to post good results here, this is a bizarre result.

Flo can be tricky, sure, but straight sets? Wow.

philosophicalarf
06-21-2010, 04:45 PM
Cilic is pretty much always crap on clay so that's excusable, but this was garbage. Courts a little slippy today, the only thing I can think of.

Another way to describe Cilic's current form trajectory....

Flo Mayer is good on grass but anyway Its a big suprise to see Cilic losing easily in the first round of a slam.

Cilic wasnt bad at all but funky Flo was just outstanding

its not like Cilic was making all the errors...Flo was hitting winners out of every single ball

congrats to the real Duck

This isn't a surprising result. Flo has the exact type of flat shots, good serve, variety, offensive talent and net ability to get Cilic right out of his rhythm.

For someone, who is supposed to be a fovourite for the whole tournament, Llodra should be a piece of cake.

Cilic started the year out so well. What happened to him?

What was obvious was that Cilic suffers from lack of confidence.

Mateya
06-21-2010, 05:20 PM
:haha: :haha: :haha:

I don't have anything against him, but I just cannot watch him play.
The most ugly forehand in the game...backhand is kind of robotic as well. When he serves it looks like he's going to break his spine on half.
Flathitting mugs are never going to be consistant, but a 1-12 tiebreak record is just hillarious and embarrassing for a player of his capability. :shrug:
Yes, Petar_pan, this Čilić is a mistery.
Great win for Flo, can he build on this?

petar_pan
06-21-2010, 05:28 PM
What was obvious was that Cilic suffers from lack of confidence.

he is always opposite from logic. he should have bigger self-confidence because of semis on AO but it's opposite. that guy is fantastic

Cilic and Mayer are complete mysteries to me. It's almost like they sometimes choose to play badly and then randomly turn on. Must be a Libra thing (Ginepri is the same way).

Can't believe all the Croats are out already.

Good match from Florian, many UEs from Cilic, but Mayer really played great tennis and showed again why he was QF here in 2004, he plays a good season anyway, only his injuries/sicknesses stop him her and there, hopefully stays healthy now for the rest of the season!

It's not only about injuries, he always had a weak mentality and lacked motivation to play tennis.

Anyway, let's hope he can at least come close to repeating his 2004 run here.

Certinfy
06-21-2010, 11:55 PM
Ah, fair enough :sad:

Yeah lets hope, not a half bad draw as well, Fish next will be hard but then if he comes through that it should be a routine R3 match, but then Roddick is there :o

Cilic needs to get back on the hard courts and get back to work. He is playing with low confidence and consistency these days.

I was reading through the thread, slightly mystified at the ill will towards Cilic, and then: voilà! Yeah his tiebreak record is laughable and he makes his wins (not his losses) last too long, but he's also hated here for beating people's faves.

Federer's Mate, I think the heartbreak of the AO took place in the final. Murray's win over Cilic in the semi was foregone because of all the court time and leg work Cilic put himself through in earlier matches.

Marin is at a low point, that's for sure. He'll rebound though.
