Santi :sad: he went away completely in the third set

Cilic won a TB :eek:

Cilic suddenly rediscovers some form :eek:

And the best indication is that he won a TB :rolls:

It was 6-1 in the third. And yes, he won a TB :D
Finally he seems to be getting back in form, honestly I was worried about this match, Marin doesn't like playing against players like Giraldo.

Sorry about the typo, corrected now :D

Cilic's first set won after saving a set point since Dubai '10 :spit: Not a big surprise this drought came to an end against a choker like Giraldo :cool:

01-20-2011, 04:39 AM
Getting there Marin, getting there :yeah:

I've heard a national holdiay is penciled in for winning that TB :p

Cilic peaking for his 6 good days a year.... not sure if he wants to waste them on Giraldo though.

Santi. :sad: Almost had it in the second set.

01-20-2011, 05:03 AM
Keep going Marin :yeah:

01-20-2011, 06:00 AM
Giraldo :( :hug:

I had a feeling Cilic would be too strong for Giraldo, and unfortunately I was right.. Still, Santi has had some good last few weeks now. I hope he can keep it going. VAMOS!:yeah:

Damn, didn't expect it so big. Is Cilic back?

Not yet, but closer. If Stepanek beats Isner, that will be a good test

Good win for Marin. I am very happy for him. Sadly, his run ends in 4th round vs. Nadal

01-20-2011, 08:36 AM
Really counting on Marin here, that R16 against Nadull may be crucial for the whole tournament. He has the game to hammer Nadal in rallies, but I'm not sure he can handle mentally.

Just looked at the match stats ..seems like he didn´t play that well.
7 DFs. 12 BPs to save.. doesn´t look that good.

I saw the first set and Cilic played well and held his ground even as Giraldo started running everything down at the end of the set.

With him nothing's for sure though:sad:

01-20-2011, 01:11 PM
if he can reach reach 4th he will have saved a few points.

What? This is the EXACT same scoreline (including the TB score) with which Soderling beat Muller today. :scratch:

Interesting to see what Cilic can do against Big John.
