Cilic def Nishikori 6-2 6-4

Comfortable for Cilic who was only troubled in two of his nine service games, and broken just the once.

Kei led 4-2 in the 2nd and then totally fell apart. Didn't even have any game points in the last four games. He also led 30-0 serving to stay in the match but then conceded the next four points.

I left after the first set. It was so freaking cold, and also I didn't have my gate key with me and they lock the bloody thing at 11. :( But still I would have left.

What I saw was the Kei was hitting in the net a lot more than usual. Very hard conditions. Gusty wind and cold. Clicic kept him waiting on the court for a good 10 minutes before he showed and the warm up began. Kei was covered in towels to keep warm.

Star, I can't believe you didn't bring an extra jacket or something. Too bad you had to leave. What's the next match you are going to see? Thanks for your updates :).

Thanx for the report, Star, shame you had to leave.
I thought it was going to be a tough match, especially in windy conditions.
Better luck in Miami, Kei...!

Nishikori was tired as hell after the qualifiers so was difficult to beat the giant overrated freak.
He did have a day off and he was playing for the main draw which must have been a motivation. I'm a big fun but he does need to improve. Maybe he needs another six months or so

expected one after i saw bad gambler's prediciton
u need BGs prediction to think this was expected ?

Kei is a fighter i ll give him that, but Marin is on another level skill wise

this was never in doubt, u having trouble holding serve against Bogdanovic and Niemeyer, u have no chance against Marin
