Pretty dominant performance apart from a few lapses. Harrison served for the 3rd but as usual after breaking, got broke back straight away. Pegged in the tie-break too, and that was it.

Harrison served for both the 2nd and 3rd set. And he had 5-2 in the breaker. :facepalm:

ryan served for both the 2nd and 3rd sets but got broken fairly easily both times, was also up 4-1 and 5-2 in the tiebreak

glad marin came through, some spotty stuff but good enough

Lost his serve too many times but a solid performance. Good to see him keeping his head together in tough situations, although Harrison's choking helped a lot. I expect a tougher match against Tomic.

Abysmal serving from Ryan today. When your main weapon is your serve, you can't get broken 7 times in three sets. Poor match overall, cause Cilic didn't play well either. :(

Seemed like Cilic was soooo toying with Harrison, like a dog and its master - giving a bone, then taking it back straight away. (3 breaks of serve gifted and taken back,as well as 5-2 lead at the TB)

Harrison had his chances, served for both the second and third sets, had a set point on serve in the breaker too but couldn't get it done.

Good win for Marin, played well for the most part.

Pretty boring match.

Cilic did what he normally does. Bashed. As for Harrison he lacks a "killer instinct", his groundstrokes usually have no pace, drop short and they are perfect for Mugrin's forehand.

On a side not, Cilic couldn't hit a forehand if Harrison returned with a short slice backhand.

Lol, main weapon serve? Look how often he gets broken every match.

The fact that Cilic managed to somehow win a tiebreak is a minor miracle in itself, if you ask me. Good match but the opponent has made it relatively easy for him, what with all the pushing.

Harrison is: 1) a monstrous brat who needs to be taught a lesson (possibly a few); 2) nothing to write home about, gamewise - basically, he's a Roddick without the serve, not a winning combination. I don't think he has a future higher than top 30.

Harrisson should watch some hewitt matches or Jamie Baker last week in Astana, because if he wants to be an all-rounder grinder, he needs to be more consistent and cut off the bad attitude crap.
