WTF RR: Zverev def. Cilic 7-6(5) 7-6(1)

Cilic is a mug, he was a break up in 1st and a break up in 2nd. Mediocre match, with this kind of performance of the oppositon - Djoko is through to the semifinal without even stepping onto court.

6-1 H2H for Zverev now in this matchup. Wow. Zverev is not even in a decent form and still straight sets him WTF meanwhile Djokovic has been in 3 3 setters with Cilic this year. Cilic has some serious mental issues in this matchup.

Zverev with a decent chance to go through. He *should* be able to beat Isner.

We see some pathetic garbage from Zverev but Cilic chokes so bad he goes on :yeah: Well done for being on court to witness such a choke :worship:
Its a shame Cilic is not right mentally for this tournament as he has the superior game, could maybe challenge Djokovic as he did in Paris, and destroyed at Queens. But expected he would crumble mentally here again :crying:

Many are saying that the Top 50 in tennis can theoretically all be Top 10, if only their margins are better. I think Cilic showcases again why he is struggling to finish strong after a great start of the season, again losing in a tight match against Sascha. Stats shows winners wise they seem the same, but Cilic had tons of errors in his FH side. I am not sure, but I heard he was up 4-0 I think in the 1st Set TB? It's like the same issue he had in Rome this year, where Sascha was down at times but keep fighting as Cilic frequently just didn't hold up during pressure. Cilic was up a break in the 2nd Set, but just crumbled in his level for the rest of the Set after that. Maybe he should just not work too hard on return on games?

Another loss for Cilic, where in an alternate timeline you would think he could've made this group 3-0 or 2-1, but because of mental fragility, may go winless if he doesn't buckle up.

What a classic match by Cilic! He was able to showcase his entire arsenal and skillset!

Who else can go up 5-2 and look pretty good...and when the time comes to close the set out - choke like he always does. Who else can go without one first serve when serving for the set? Who else can decide to not challenge a call when his ball was on the line? Who else can hit a few easy forehands right in the middle of the net in the tie break? Who else can go up 4-3 and a break in the second set and get broken right away? Yea, you got that right - it's the choker of all chokers - Marin Cilic! It sucks that women can get breast implants, but dudes like Cilic can't get ball implants.

If there's one single positive thing I can say about this choker, it's the fact that he actually tried to attack most of the match. Zverev played like the ultimate 2m tall pusher, almost not looking for any winners at all. And he still won. :shrug:

I know the second set TB ended 7-1, but Cilic was robbed of a critical point at 4-1 when his second serve was called out and he had no challenges remaining. The serve was in, and what was just a single minibreak became a 1-5 deficit at the changeover. That completely changed the complexion of the TB

GOATrev is just too skilled and talented for Cilic, he was in bad form here and Cilic still couldn’t beat him, always choking. :spit:

The first set was really comical, Cilic was 3-0 and the had BPs four double break, didn’t convert, then once again at 4-1, breaks point and failed. Then got broken while serving for the set and lost the TB 5-7. 2nd set he was once again broke first, then immediately got broken back and got destroyed in the TB. He’s such a mental midget vs Zverev.
