What a fucking match from Copil, 21 aces, 0 DFs. The way he played from 2 SPs down in the second, incredible. :worship:
Yet to drop a set in Basel. :bounce:
Best win of his career so far.

Copil was great, kudos to him. Wasn't broken once I don't think.

Cilic has been abysmal for months now, no idea what's happened as his first half of the season was fine. Guess he wants year to end, travesty if he still makes WTF.

Cilic needs a break instead of embarassing himself for months. Problem is he needs to find some form for the Davis Cup final. Coric won't be able to carry Croatia on his own. Since Coric is chasing WTF there's a pretty good chance he'll injure himself by the end of Paris and then it's all on Cilic. :help:

I saw this match live and Copil was super impressive with his serve and some crazy backhands as well.
At the net he also played some elegant points + his slices were good and effective.
Here in Basel he plays really nice tennis, his wins over Lajovic (in Q) and Harrison were impressive too.

QF against Fritz seems winnable as well.

He's almost guaranteed WTF qualification.
Yeah he got enough points first half of the season and then won Queens obviously but since then....

Wimbledon- 2nd round

Rogers cup- Quarters

Cinni- Semi

Us open- Quarters

Japan open- Lost first round to Struff

Shanghai- Lost first round to Jarry

Vienna- Copiled

In fairness I've done him a bit of a disservice as his form on the american hardcourts was respectable enough. Fallen off a cliff since then.

Great win!
Really glad for your countryman. I always have kind of soft spot for Marius as a player.

Marin was shattered LOL

Copil is a bad match-up for Cilic, H2H is 2-2, including the match in US Open when Copil was outplaying Cilic until he got injured.

Quite a few he's lost despite playing well (Struff and Jarry were recent chokes). Though USO De Minaur was up 2-0 sets and Goffin was leading till arm couldn't carry him.

At least it was a nice clean loss, no shenanigans like in his match vs Jarry and Struff.
