Well done Marin :yeah:

He was down a break in the second and fourth, but fought his way back. I was ready to post the result at 7:6 and serve in 4th set TB , but he went to lose both serves and eventually the TB. Not even stats to see for Court 4 :mad: Broke at the beginning of the fifth for 3:0 lead and once again at 5:2

Great win for Marin but after 4 1/2 hrs of play I don't think he'll be fit to play tomorrow against Ginepri.

Shouldn't that match be on Friday?

cilic wasted too much time and strength here.

slim chances in the next round, ginepri is playing pretty good

And Benneteau was double break up in 4th and nearly blew the 4th away. :rolleyes:

Good win for Cilic. Always important to win a match when you lost a set wasting match point.

Nice for Marin to get a win but he should've won this in 3, mostly 4 sets. It will be a tough match against Ginepri tomorrow.

This win means he has wins on all 4 grand slams now. And he's not 20 yet :yeah:

if you mean in 4th set, he retired at 5-1. He was leading 5-1.

It's just that the US Open site shows the final set scoreline as 5-2.

:scratch: SB was at 15:40 5:2 when it switched to winner MC. If he retired, it was on the last point.
