Rublev was up a minibreak late in the tiebreak and had a match point at 6-5*, but couldn't get through and then collapsed in the third.

Giraldo next for Cilic.

Default Geneva R2: [WC2] Cilic def. [WC] Rublev 4-6 7-6(7) 6-1

Rublev is alright, but Cilic wasn't losing to this toothpick, Andrei will do well in a few years when he adds muscle and fitness to his weaponry, until then he will lose to the likes of Marin.

Rublev had 5-2 in the tiebreak and a match point but he was not ready yet to take out a TOP10 player. Mentally, he's still weak. You could see how disappointed he was at the end of the match.

Cilic was mediocre in this one. He's playing his pigeon, Giraldo in the next round. Should be a lot easier for him. Also, he served really well.

It's all PR... Someone started talking about Coric and now you guys believe he's so wonderful kid, his highest ranking - 84, Dzumhur highest ranking - 87. The same actually. Difference? Coric made it via wildcards - to Basel for example, Dzumhur had to reach it by hard work, on qualies, challengers.

Haters in ruins.

Funny thing is, it could've so easily finished as a straight sets win for Rublev and Marin wasn't even playing bad. Good to see Marin so clutch in the TB, and closing it out with an easy third set. He should beat Giraldo and get at least a couple more matches on clay under his belt before RG.

I hope Cilic won't look at me with his pedo eyes when I'll be there in the following days.

Rublev, you could have saved us!

Rublev was the better player for two sets. Too bad he couldn't convert his MP. His coach wearing an RF sweater, surely a good kid.

I remember Donskoy saying that it was hard for him to handle Rublev as a doubles partner due to his emotional explosions. The kid has a raging bull inside, which mostly abuses himself, his shoes and balls. He ought to learn how to tame it. I think he will, but we shall see.

Damn Cilic is rubbish on clay

I'm surprised by how well Rublev's been doing in ATP events. Zverev tried the same but failed at 17 but Rublev is showing consistency all ready which is impressive. Shame he couldn't capitalized on the match point but he'll have many more opportunities to beat top 10 players in the future of course. Let's hope he can capitalize then .

Bizarre comment considering he was one point away from doing it, a weak serve or a DF from Cilic on match point would have been enough. Great performance from Rublev, he's already a fantastic player...

As for Cilic, hope after this scare he goes deep here, about time he gets a good result this year. I don't imagine he will be up to much at RG, but if he's in form at Wimbledon he will be dangerous for anyone.

The whole match was reminiscent of a typical drama. Rublev's first service games and break seemed to be an exposition, 2nd set's tiebreak and the Russian's mp like a climax and the third set was some kind of resolution.


Kudos to Rublev! This young kid has to deal with (his) chagrins, but he's only 17 years old and he already impressed me more than Coric did in the past months. This guy could have a bright future if he keeps fighting and training hard, I'm a little bit optimistic here. Only thing I giggled at was his coach's jacket, seems to be a fedtard.
