tough one,Marin is obviously on fire,but he might be tired after Beijing,and looking previously,Tomas one that DC match,although it was played on clay...Cream of the day for sure.Marin might have an edge ,but i think Berdych will take it in 3

Berdych played impressive stuff in the early rounds of Tokyo, and if he plays near to that i think he'll take this, as Cilic would probably be tired.

Take a look on last year's Tokyo final - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXt2wDMWyZk

It's hard for me to even immagine Cilic winning here.

Identical styles, but more experience for the bird. Should be him in 2 or 3, even though Marin can be a destroyer on his day.

no way berdych has better chances. cilic is better. but he could be tired or he can have bad day (like often).

Altough I think Berdych should win this, it's really hard to know how he'll play.

I think Cilic is probably a better player, but as mentioned above he may be tired. Still, I'll go for him. Berdych is just a very unpredictable player though. One match it seems he's unbeatable and the next he could be beaten comfortably, so alot depends on the Berdych who shows up on the day.

Hard to call, but Cilic in 2.

If Berdych plays well, he'll win. Cilic has improved a lot, but the only thing he does better than Berdych is move/run down balls :shrug: That said, I think Cilic will win in 3.

There's a reason Cilic is strong favourite - Berdy only plays as well as Tokyo every two years. No sign of it lately.

Berdych is much more of an all-court rhythm player, pressure-aggression rather than risky winners. It's why he has some success on clay - he's made the semis of Monte Carlo, whereas Cilic got bagelled there by Fognini this year. Slow clay simply isn't his game (although Rome and Madrid will likely be fine for him longer term) - he's best on grass and faster hard.

yes, in general Berdych should prefer slower hard courts while Cilic should be rocking on indoor fast hard.
In the current situation i believe there is a little advantage for the Czech player.

Of course it's a hard one to call, but betting wise it looks like an obvious choice.

BTW Isner getting hammered and it looks ridiculous (it - Isner)
