Cilic's USO run has got to be the most overrated run of all time. All respect to his fans, he's still a great, slam deserving player, but after that 5-setter against Gilles 5imon, he just played washed up opponents.No player in the world could have won against Cilic playing like that. Might have been the highest peak ever.
Berdych was already on pre-retirement mode, Federer was washed up after that Monfils match, and Nishikori was super washed up after that Djokovic match.
Just watch their matches, just puff balls towards Cilic's forehand. It takes two to have a dance, and all those guys made Cilic look really good.
For high peak, Stanimal's at RG final vs Djokovic is much more impressive, though, once again, washed up Djokovic after two day 5-setter against Murray made him look good as well.
Monfils was really in form that time, and fresh vs Cilic, maybe would be something closer to 50-50, but I would still have my money on the french.
