Easy opponent for Marin at the start in Madrid, nice he did not go mental after he lost the final in Munich. Montanes is ready for retirement it seems anyway...

The "who gives a fuck" match of the day.

Good win for Marin against an opponent who obviously would be motivated, but the first serve percentage in the second set will not get the job done going forward, at 37% first serves. He was easily winning his service games until the middle of the second set. Saved three BPs at *4-2 in the second set and four BPs the final game.

It wasn't an easy match at the end for Marin at all. The draw may be easy but he made things tough on himself with the bad serving.

Mugtanes is shocking in Madrid.

Mugrin on fire these days. Seems like clay is his favorite surface.

Marin never plays/serve well on a cold or rainy day, as seen in Munich final and Madrid today. Rest of the week is sunny and dry so I expect him to pick up his first serve percentage.

Very poor less, Albert. You should start playing some challengers so you can grab some points.

rare occasions when Cilic saves tennis. looney tunes shouldn't be stepping on tennis court. 46% not bad for MC's standards
watch tomorrow when Isner will have double as Cilic first serves in

The "who gives a fuck" match of the day.

If you look closer, that are so many other matches here that deserves that title.
At least according to replies or number of views, but than again Cilic was always beloved.;)
