Cilic likes this match up (3-0 head to head) and is finally performing in tiebreakers (he's won his last 6). Tsonga next.

Cilic might be a mug, but at least he dominated ugly American tennis.

Nice going Cilic.

Cilic likes big servers- his ROS is excellent and he dealt with Isner's serve effectively.

nicely done marin:)

got a bit worried when servebot started firing aces all over the place

Isner's 9-0 2013 TB run stopped by the so called TB mug. Well done Marin :worship:
Easy and expected win, 3-0 H2H against Isner now.

Croatia gets its revenge. :rocker:

I think I'm starting to like the unibrow.

Expected result, Cilic is probably the best ever returner of serve for a guy his size and that's pretty much what Isner's game comes down to. He's also unaffected by the kicker due to his height, so a good matchup for him all in all.

Should be a good match with Tsonga in the next round.

The GOAT abides.

the crowd should be paid to sit through an isner match.

Great to see serve bot lose even if it means Mugrin advancing

Isner's physique and game style plays right into Cilic's hand. Easy pickings for Cilic and NID.

this wasn't nearly as close as the score suggests. when isner didn't hit an ace, cilic was winning about 65% of the return points...
ump didn't save him this time

Thank you Mr. Marin, Isner is a nightmare for Tsonga. Tomorrow should be an enjoyable match.

Standard shit for Cilic. He avenged Dodig for that injustice

03-26-2013, 07:37 AM
interesting next round against Jo :yeah:

03-26-2013, 03:28 PM
yes, and Cilic is 4-1 against Isner in tie-breaks :D

4 in a row :D

03-26-2013, 03:30 PM
good that Cilic got the job done, the correct result

Isner has one problem that he cannot overcome--the net. Every time Isner goes for an aggressive groundstroke he gets anxious and mistimes the shot by swinging early.

I am SO happy that Isner is out if the top 15 and will never return. Such a pain to see this guy play. And even better all started with Kohli winning against him :-)
