    Fantastic win for Cilic, the first 2 sets Berdych was very poor but he still got it done in straights after Berdych started playing way better in the 3rd set.

    Good match Cilic, though Birdie played not so good.

    Such an anti-climax, in the face of so many that picked Birdman based on the last match :).

    No he got to the semis at the 2010 AO I think lost to Murray.

    Second, he made the SF at the Aussie open. He's playing what i think is much better tennis this year now tho.

    I'm still amazed at the English skills from the Balkan players.

    Cilic gave a pretty close match when he played Federer last time.

    2 straight beatdown by Cilic. That will be demoralizing for Berdych.

    It cannot get anymore easier for Fed now!

    Congrats to Cilic, excellent year for him. And there was I thinking Berdych would win in 4!

    Looking for a perma-ban.
    And guess who won that tournament :shock:

    Well played by Cilic. Berdych performed way below his own standard though.

    I know it's a big ask but if Cilic wins his SF match, Murray drops out of the top 10.

    Wow, congrats to Cilic. Thought Berdych would be too much for him. In anycase, I would rather have Cilic in the semi than Berdych (for multiple reasons).

    So either Fed or a first time finalist. Brilliant!

    Well done Cilic and Goran. I think he learnt a lot from that djokovic match at Wimbledo.

    Federer will somehow manage to eff it up. Don't worry.

    To Federer I hope :)

    Federer needs to be in the final, Djokovic will get positive h2h at Slams against him.

    Cilic would have to win it all for Murray to drop out of the Top 10

    Fed should be able to handle him though

    Cilic establishes himself as a genuine contender
