Default US Open R3 : Cilic def. Nishikori 6-3 6-4 6-7 (3) 6-3

Better player won in my opinion.
Plus, i'd really love to ask an honest question. What's up with all this hype about Kei ? I mean, i've been watching him ever since his match against Moya here years ago and he's still the same guy. Don't get me wrong i'm not a hater or something but i mean, this guy has a nice forehand, yeah that's right. But, what else ? I can't see anything besides that nice forehand. If all this hype about him is just because that he's got a nice forehand, i mean Steve Johnson has a huge forehand, too.
Anyway, i'll never be able to understand this hype about him.

Marin Strong performance, take out that 3rd set and it was excellent.
Over 3.5 hours and he was supposed to be tired
Hopefully he keeps it up and at least gets through one more round and makes the QF


Dedicated to samanosukit, this clown obviously knows his tennis :

Great match from Cilic. Kei was kaputz in the 4th set.

Cilic still doesn`t play as he did in late 09 - early 10. But strong perfomance overall.

This Cilic truly loves to exhaust himself throughout a tournament. He's gonna be dead tired in the QF against Murray.

didn't see this one coming but such pathetic returning from Kei, specially on second serve.He didn't return something like 30% of second serves. Even when he is winning Cilic is an artist. In breaker he made 5 errors, the closest one to the court was out for 3 meters

Was stunned to see Nishikori as the pre-match fav. Well done Cilic, good win for the Croat.

Very nice match.

I was impressed with Marin, both fitness and game-wise.

Now go one step further!

Glad Cilic beat this overrated player.
He can't ask for a better opponent in round 4 of a Slam,but Klizan is obviously on fire,will be an open match probably.

Quite a competent match from the Gentle Giant of Medjugorje, doing what had to be done.
Keeps himself on collision course for a possible QF of epic proportions.

Great performance from Cilic, especially in the first two sets. His second serve was particularly impressive, and he was hitting big and consistently, very little Kei could have done as Cilic's game is naturally bigger than his, making it very hard for Kei to deal with it when Marin is on fire.

Hope Marin wins the next match in 3 sets and is fresh enough for Murray/Raonic in QF, he definitely has a shot at SF now.

Kei had a good tournament regardless, he should keep improving and rising up the rankings.

H2H is 6-1 in Murray's favor, and he was suffering from a wrist injury in the only match he lost.
