re: Tennis Discussion Thread
Murray slowly playing a bit more consistently and forcing the tempo of play a bit. From 1-5 to 5-5 on serve now, crucial for him to hold now and then force Cilic to serve for a tiebreak having been broken in his last two service games.
EDIT: terrific hold there. Cilic looking a little sluggish with some loose shots now. He's played unbelieveable so far but with that style of play there's always going to be moments where he doesn't find the lines, and from there its a matter of how good he is on the big points against the better players. Early on he was playing the big points with a carefree attitude and playing them smart, now he's slowly making more errors whilst Murray is moving better around the court.
Murray wins tie-break, 1-5 down to win 7-6. Crucial victory there since now Cilic has to come out and try and regain the momentum, which should see him potentially hit more errors the more he goes for the win. Murray still having a couple of rash moments but slowly but surely seems to be growing in confidence.
