Default Queens Final WWW: David Nalbandian vs Marin Cilic

Great final between two great players.

H2H is in favor of David, but Marin won their last match in Davis Cup in Argentina in 5 sets.

Both guys have been playing great this week so far, can't really say who will take this one.

A win would take Cilic to #18 in the world, well on his way back to the top 10 at least. Nalbandian would rise to #29, maybe hinting at a late career surge.

Either way, tennis wins.

I'd be surprised if Nalby got less than 99% of the votes here

They have faced twice this year, one on hardcourt and one on clay, and now grass.

At Indian Wells, Nalbandian won 7-6 and 7-6.

At DC in Argentina (clay), Cilic won 5-7, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3


Both very tight matches, as tomorrow's will probably be as well.

Tough to see how this one is going to pan out. Marin is really back playing some great stuff again....and his game suits grass well. Dave says he feels fine, but looks a bit tired. Think I will go Cilic in 3...but won't be surprised by any outcome.

What kind of grass final is this? Too bad the two finalists from last year lost early this year

That said, the other possible finalists were Querrey and Dimitrov so I can't really complain The two lessers of 4 evils got through, I guess.

What are you on about? Nalbandian has reached a final at Wimbledon, albeit a decade ago, and Cilic plays good tennis and moves well on grass.

True, on paper it's not as good a final as Murray vs Tsonga last year, but it's hardly a bad one either.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

I have to wonder how much gas Nalby has left in the tank after the last two days' exertions. He looked rather whacked after today's match. Hope he recovers enough to make the final competitive.

The best player never to win a slam takes this for sure.

's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
