Gulbis out of the way, epic 4th rd against Robin; all is possible...

he'll have to step it up, but i don't doubt he will. mello was a freebie first round and he just came out a bit flat

pretty easy except for the second set (over 70 minutes :eek: )

Seems like a nice straight forward win. Anyone see how he played? They always schedule him first and its too early for me.

I saw only TB and he was solid. Unlikely I'll see anyhting before second week except the Gasquet/Murray treat, so you'd better make it there Marin :armed: :lol:

Are you watching? How is he playing? I see Maye took the second to make it one set all.

Not watching.Just following the scoreboard. The live streams I have don't cover Cilic's court:(

There is a link on livescore hunter if you need http://www.livescorehunter.com/index.php?option=com_lsh&view=lsh&event_id=18874&tid=7821&channel=0&tmpl=component&layout=popup&Itemid=207.

Apparently, there's no sound, just picture :silly:

Easy hold there for 4:3. Ajmo Marin :rocker2:

This Mayer is a fighter. But Cilic looks like he has this under control.

Roller-coaster TB with lots of mini breaks. Hold those two serves now :armed:

Damn, he really needs to do something about that TB record.

one more 1/8 final on GS's in his young career
7. time at age of 21, 5 from last 6 GS. ha had matc point or two for 6th (haas in wimbledon). that's really great
if he beat soderling he will get 30. win on GS (he has 12 losses, but 3 of them was in his first GS season when he was without a win)
he is on 29:8 in this season. really well
i think he can even beat federer in quaters. it would be great if he will make appereance with him

Aye, 4th round is solid in RG, but by all accounts he did not put up much of a fight today, which is a shame (or not if Soderling is to challenge Federer, depends how you look at it, I guess ;)).

Onto the much more exciting grass season :rocker: Hopefully, he won't draw Mahut again in Queens first round, or Llodra this time. I'd like too see more of both fine grass courters and Marin

honestly, soderling wasn't playing that well and marin just had a bad day. the serve made a huge difference
