Depends on how hurt Delpo really is.

If he was, Cilic should hammer him.

Cilic, 5.

If Marin can't beat Del Potro here, he never will.

Cilic in 3.

Of course it'd all change if Juan's knee got somehow healed, but chances of it happening in two days are very slim. Marin must take advantage and make a deep run here.

I remember Delpo beating Cilic last year 6/3 6/0 while seriously injured (he retired Next match). I think he has
a good chance here as he does basically everything better than Cilic but I am worried about his fitness level/injury however.

No deep run for Marin here. If he beats Delpo, Berdych Will take him out.

His movement wasn't hampered in Madrid though. There's no way Juan can beat a player like Marin while moving like he did today, he'll lose unless his knee can somehow be sorted out in two days (unlikely) or Marin clowns the match away.

4th round for Cilic is a deep run. Let alone beating Delpo on the way.

You never know; Marin is a player who thrives on confidence. If he beat even an injured Delpo who's kind of been his bete noire in recent times, I could definitely see him trouble and maybe beat Tomas.

Looks like the end of the road here for del Potro.

Delpo has Cilic' number this year, so I expect a win for him, even injured.

If Del Potro is fit he will win in 3.

If Del Potro is injured he will win in 3.

If Marin repeat today's performance and if is Del Potro repeat his tennis from this year RG Marin win win easily. Marin will beat Berdych for sure with this form.

But I know Del Potro will play very good and will win easily.

If Del Potro play like today and with that mentally, I think he will win. If not of course Cilic.

Like most pointed out, it really depends on how hurt Del Potro is. If he was injury-free, no doubt he would be a massive favourite to win this match rather comfortably. Isn't the case so i'm leaning towards a 4-set win for Cilic, Juan should still give a fight.

Delpo's injury is really disappointing! Now we will miss a hell of a match in R4 against Berdych. Even if he manages to get past Cilic (unlikely), would be easy for Tomas under these circumstances.

Cilic in 3, Del Pony can't move.

Delpony was already knee injured in Madrid and he didn't pull out...now his knee's getting worse. He reminds me Fatdall who destroyed his body paying no attention to his fitness...
Be careful Depony, Fatdall is the worst ex ever, don't do like him, have some rest when you need it. RG is more important than Estoril. If you had skip that small event, maybe would you be injury free today.
If Delpony can't run, either he'll W/O or he'll be beaten by Cilic. If he can run and chase the ball, he'll win. All depends of his injury, serious or not

Cilic in 4 or 5

you know thats a really disrespectufl poll. If your going to make one atleast put marin's name in it

marin has a chance IF the knee is that big of a factor and i really doubt it is. I say del potro in 4

I'm surprised so many people are choosing Cilic. I thought Delpo actually looked pretty good today. Cilic won't exploit Delpo's movement as much as many other players. I give the edge to Delpo in 4 sets based on his superior game and H2H, hope he proves me right.

Just wish the big man could stay healthy for a long enough period of time to gather his confidence and upset a Top 4. He really relies on match play and top-notch health to feel like he can win. That's exactly what his 2009 was - he was building momentum all year from the Aussie summer to the US summer.

Logically del potro will lose. So he will win.

Even a 4 setter with a score line like that will leave him completely useless for the Berdych match. Honestly, he should not be playing and risking another major injury. There will be more RGs for him... He's only 23 for pete's sake...

Even with his knee problems I think it will be battle.
Cilic win in 5 sets.

Both are brainless ballbashers who don't deserve to be in R4, but I hope Mugrin wins to derail the Del-Shitro bandwagon.

Seems like Cilic can only win against injured or rusty Delboy. He has a chance but depends on Delboy's knees.

Every player who's not a moonballer you're going to call him a ballbasher?

Two big bruisers. Hmm probably Potro in 4. Cilic is one of the most mentally weakest players out there. He was lucky to defeat Potro last time given the combination of high UEs at the Australian Open not to mention the heat getting to Potro which gave Cilic a chance to get a win over him back then.

Should be a very interesting match. Del Potro will have to dictate and make a good start.
