Čilić Off To 1st Wimbledon Semifinal After Muller Win

July 12, 2017

After losing the first set 6-3 to Gilles Muller, Čilić rallied back to force a second set tiebreak to enter the third set tied 1-1. Čilić took the third set easily but was broken late in the fourth to force a fifth and deciding set. It was all Marin in the fifth set as he broke Muller twice early to win 6-1.

 

 

Čilić will now take on American Sam Querrey in the semifinals Friday, who defeated #1 Andy Murray earlier in the day in five sets. Čilić has a 4-0 record over Querrey and will be the favorite to play in the Wimbledon Final on Sunday.

 

—————————— 

Marin Čilić, although not yet challenged, has cruised through his first four Wimbledon matches this year. Čilić has yet to drop a set against Philipp Kohlscreiber, Florian Mayer, Steve Johnson or Roberto Bautista Agut. And although not household names, it’s easier said than done to go perfect through the first four matches of a Grand Slam.

 

 

Čilić has been fortunate thus far as he did not have to face #9 ranked Kei Nishikori in the 4th Round and will not play Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals Wednesday as he was defeated in a 5-hour plus five-setter by Gilles Muller on Monday. Čilić will come in with optimal rest for his quarterfinal clash with the Luxembourg man on Wednesday, and with the win, will play in his first ever Wimbledon semifinal. Čilić won the 2014 U.S. Open title in New York.

    Ya i hope so. He seems confident. Hope the semis are next. Can’t wait for the match. Early start est.



  2. Rob I says:

    He looks really solid. he could go all the way.apart from Federer, Cilic looks the most likely to beat him



  3. Iggy Iggy says:

    Good night tonight so as expected, Iggy is on the vodskies.

    8 pm = get to see Queensland smash some blue wankers in Origin, and then right after that, get to see Cilic smash Muller and make the semis. Good times ! :D



  4. Iggy Iggy says:

    i can’t even see Cilic to win, anyone with a link?

    Btw so far it’s gone good, Queensland smashed NSW – just need Marin to win in 5 now :D



  5. Iggy Iggy says:

    i saw the ending ! Great stuff Marin ! love the guy !

    A real chance for him to win the whole thing now, love u Marin!



  6. Zee says:

    Ya for sure iggy. Has a good record against that American guy albeit they were all hard fought matches. Marin should be fresher as well. The American had to go 5 3 or 4 times i believe this tournament.



  7. Zee says:

    Ya i know but they were all tough matches. Cilic should be heavily favoured. Just stay focused and he should be in the final. But who knows. Look murray today.

    if you guys come up with this case.

    Mamic is the manager of a business. He did a bunch of illegal stuff for personal gain. But instead of being fired, we’re gonna let him hire people for different departments but then ask them if what Mamic did was wrong.

    Truth troll can’t stay away. You would think he has better things to do than teoll; like “running simulations” or helping his son with “Ivy league” homework.
