Mardy's game is SO ugly to watch -- and he makes it worse with his bad attitude. Glad Cilic won, he looked much more mature than good ole Mardy...

cilic's constant "come aaan"'s* after ue's were very irritating. they both played like clowns for the most part I thought.

it's clear that fish is a massive choker. he blew 3 set points on his own serve in the 2nd set. for one of them he tried a drive volley off a ball that was going out and put it into the net. sheer panic.

* I think it's supposed to be a come on anyway. could be something in his native tongue I guess.

the only irritating 'come on' was the one Fish:retard: did in the third set that was extremely fake, done just to taunt Cilic. Cilic at least actually meant his come ons.

I've never noticed Cilic doing it that much before. It might have been tactical. It's no secret that Fish's game goes to pieces when he gets pissed off. Annoying the shit out of him is a good tactic for anyone.

Fish is just a disgrace. He's awful. I think this was one of the few matches where I rooted against the American after it started, because at least Cilic could be an asset to the sport at some point. Fish is an embarrassment. He didn't deserve the gold either, he can't even win when everything is in his favor. It's one thing to lose finals against Federer and Roddick, it's another thing against someone like Cilic, or even Blake last year.

complete rubbish post. And it contradicts itself praising Cilic and then bashing Fish for losing to "someone like Cilic."

:retard::retard::retard:

:retard::retard::retard:

I mean Cilic is better than Fish. Way better than Fish. Fish beating Cilic on any surface would be a shocking upset. So I'm confused as to what's so bad about losing to Cilic, especially for "someone like Fish."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was Cilic's first final and he was the one who should have been choking. Fish has just no heart, it's that simple.

A lot of practice with PHM did the trick. :cool:

Seriously, it was just a matter of time before Chili wins the title, similar to JMDP. I don't exactly adore his game, his grundstrokes look a bit strange or flat, but it sure is effective.

And he hit only 20 UEs in 3 sets, that's pretty good considering he hit over 70 in the match against Monaco at the Olympics.

Glad that Cilic has won his first (of many) titles. Now only if Tipsy can win one!

Not a whole lot going in the match at times, both players played okay while throwing in some simple errors here and there at times. The quality at the end of the second set and beginning of the third set was especially poor, where both players were getting nervous. By the third set, Cilic started reading Fish's serve better (as evidenced by his impressive percentage of points won returning first serve) and was hitting some effective passing shots as well, most of which were set up by the return. The end of the second set where Fish volleyed a shot that was going out on set point in his favour could have been a costly mistake but it turned out that he ended up being able to take that set anyway.

Bravo Marinko, a good effort from the beginning of the week, escaping a defeat against Melzer, and after that it was all one way; Fish is no match for him....

I look forward to his match against the Joker in th 3rd round of th USOpen, should be a cracker, he is still only 19, and he can improve a lot...

The true Croatian no1. at the moment (Karlovic is not considered as a tennis player)

Did the scoreboard also look like sh... on ESPN? Guess they don't care about those without HD and just zoom in the whole video, not caring about how the scoreboard might look.
