Crazy! Absolutely crazy! After AHM broke back he was practically hitting winners at will!

Lucky Loser? Seriously? Organisers of this tournament should be absolutely disgraced to not have given him a WC!

Great chance of making the final as well!

Cilic is a joke player - with his height the guy completely hasn't a clue how to take an advantage of the serve in tie-breaks.

Averange 1st serve speed:
- Sillyc 188 km/h ( :haha: )
- Haider 206 km/h

Height:
- Sillyc 198 cm
- Haider 190 cm


p.s. cilic is only few months away from IW qualies :cool:

I think his run in Melbourne was a bit delusive. His 5-set win over Del Potro looked impressive but the Argentine after that didn't play a match in 8 months :o Another 5-set win over Roddick also delusive because A-Rod had won against Gonzalez in 5 too in the previous round and was out of gas in the 5th set with Cilic, BTW Roddick is a mediocre 5-set player without any experience of winning 5-setters being a break down in the 5th.

i really hope cilic would find that level he was playing in ao. this has been so disappointing season for many top 20 players. :(

yeah, maybe you're right. still, he outplayed murray in the semis first set, then HE ran out of gas after those five-setters. think he totally deserved to be in semifinal.

Not the guy who opened up with a 14-1 record at the start of the season surely :(

Fall like a stone after AO and 2X MM wins come off the ranking.

philosophicalarf
10-29-2010, 03:58 PM
Cilic only beat DelPot and Roddick in 5, despite them both being injured. Murray was hopeless in the opening set too.

Anyway, Cilic was showing bad signs by Dubai, then stunk at IW (lost to GGL R1), and has basically consistently stunk ever since. I've heard various rumours why, but the common theme seems to be too much "off-court activities".

I agree, that must've really shaken him up. His tennis wasn't the best quality before that either, but he really hasn't been the same since that incident :sad:

Čilić is the only player in top 200 I don't like, what a ridicolous player. Tiebreak record keeps improving. :lol:
Makes me wonder how can this dude be in top 20 and I can't be in top 600.

Hey, what should his ranking be if he loses in 3rd round of AO? And he has two titles to defend as well.
Just amazing loss of form.

When you think of it it's amazing how Cilic has been slumping more or less ever since his slam semi and two 250 titles which he kicked off the year with. His confidence just seems shot.

I didn't see this match, but I remember being impressed with Haider-Maurer's forehand when he played Söderling at the USO. He could keep on getting the odd decent result here and there every now and then.

Cilic's expectations have always been too high, but he's struggling for sure. Marin is overrated. He's not really a pure power player like Soderling/Berdych/the guys he's usually compared to. He's not the same server, he doesn't have the same power on his shots, and he doesn't have the same forceful nature. Marin hit 12 aces but only won 63% of first serve points. AHM was the better player, he played to win and was inspired, hit big, served big, and it worked. AHM played a great tiebreak and Cilic didn't, obviously, and the Austrian used the crowd to his advantage. A great week for him, he's really used the Soderling US Open match as a springboard for great things. Good opportunity for an all-Austrian final now.

marin cilic. What a loser.

this is an awful loss vs a low quality nobody like Haider murer. Murer is terrible player with no future and will be challeners all his career. What the fuck is wrong with Marin, he's garbage :o, h'es slow, his timing is poor, he has no tactics what so ever. AO win was impressive and he played great tennis vs tomic,roddick and delpo in those thrillers. His form has gone off the rails. Bob brett has outdone his use.

Bad reult and bad match. Haider murer sucks and cilic shouldnt be losing to tweebs like him.

I love watching people pile on Marin on this board. It's as if he never achieved anything, and his wins were all flukes that occurred entirely because of the other player. People used to say this all the time about Nadal, who at least was a defensive player, or Simon. It's such bs. I suspect a lot of it has to do with some of the players -- Nadal, Murray, etc. -- he's beaten.

Voo, Marin beat Roddick at the Australian Open because he played a phenomenal 5th set and (hard to believe now) his serve was clutch. He went into that match having gotten through two five-setters already, so the fact that Roddick had just played one shouldn't matter more. And his performance at the Australian this year was an extension of his improvement at the US Open the previous fall and the fact that he has always played well at the Australian.

Marin is just pathetic right now. I don't know why the hell he is even playing instead of regrouping, except for the money and the fact that if rumors are to be believed, he's easy. His poor performances go back way before the coma/practice incident.

If he flushes his career down the toilet, so be it. It's his right to be incredibly stupid. But a lot of the talk about his supposed lack of ability on MTF is ridiculous, with people writing about him as if he's already 30 and completely untalented. I'd be surprised if he doesn't eventually come back to prove the haters wrong, but he's got a long road ahead of him.

This is officially the match that will set him in the grave. I don't ever see Marin Cilic coming back again. 2010 Australia, will be the last memory I will ever have of him. I had faith in this guy to get better and make things interesting. He's just flat out collapsed, just abysmal. I don't want to ever mention or see him again. I don't expect him to improve at all. Just terrible, nothing more to say.

agree with this. i don't understand why cilic is so hated here, it's not like he fluked/had an easy path to grandslam semis, he fought hard and played some great tennis back then. it was a great achievement for the young lad, i just hope he can come back stronger in 2011. btw, is there a thread in mtf regarding these 'rumors'?

Amazing victory for Andreas. By far this is his best week in his career. Under my opinion Berrer is the favourite to win today but my support goes for the Austrian ;)

BTW, Marin should reorganize his working team and focus on next year`s schedule. Things can`t be that worse than they are right now. It`s a real pity to see Marin losing so badly.
