I mean, Cilic vs Nishikori? After years of Big 2 + Djokovic/Murray dominance who saw that coming?

..and then Cilic won it, becoming the second Croatian player to win a Grand Slam after Ivanisevic? Who ever saw Cilic winning a slam besides some of the more hopeful Croatian posters here? Simply stunning.

It was fantastic. After the first SF Fedtards were ready for 18 GS, but later... Cilic saved tennis. :bigclap:

Since when did Murray ever dominate? He should never be mentioned in the same sentence as the other 3.
I'm more referring to him being a consistent presence in slam finals.

Yes.
Kei should have won this title....
i think his way to the final beating raonic and Stan in 5 long sets and then beating Novak was more impressive than Cilic way and it would have been amazing if he would have won the title at the end.

Who Saw Wawrinka winning 2 slams at 30. When he has just 10 titles to his name. These things happen. It's going to happen again and again. With at least one none big 4 player in the final of slams. Now that Federer has turned 34 today. Nadal is below his best. And Murray lacks consistency. This is where Djokovic gets his 6 additional slams from over the next 13 slams.

A player can get hot for two weeks like CILIC did at any time. Then go back to their losing ways.

Cilic's dismantling of Fed was more than impressive. :worship: I knew he was gonna own Nishikori in the final after seeing the semis.

Shocking Saturday as the commentators described it - after the Semi-finals.
Djoker was lacklustre, while Cilic just hit Federer off the court.
But yes, I was stunned.
The Final was a fizzer, but I expected a goating Cilic would be too powerful for Kei.

The result of the match was not shocking to me at all, in fact it was basically in line with my predictions. The fact that a Nishikori vs. Cilic final happened was indeed a surprise to everyone (even the fabled nole_no1 prediction never said anything about Nishikori being there as well).
Nishikori being there was a complete surprise, and only due to the fact that Djoker was underdone and underprepared + a very hot and humid day, did this eventuate.
Djoker has owned Kei ever since, so there will be no encore.
