    And the Watch ESPN app didn’t even stream Khachanov - Haase - grumpy.

    Cilic pushing him around, robbing his time - that’s how to beat Nadal on hard/grass; we’ll see if he can keep it up.

    3-1

    This is a perfect start for Cilic, really playing well so far.

    Nadal's way off so far. Should get better as the match wears on.

    So no credit for Cilic?

    Some start from Marin, massive forehands, close to the lines as well..... It's good that Marin has a great serve out wide on deuce side...

    Rafa looks a little meh...

    2 unreturned serves from Nadal followed by an excellent i/o fh from Cilic.

    You know you're in trouble when Marin is playing consistently off the forehand lol, amazing winner....

    Relentless pressure, forcing Rafa to try and play the forehand dtl. Wayward though and it's BP...

    Cilic is very handsome with that kit.
    Think he's put on a bit of muscle as well.

    This is way too much for Nadal in this kind of form.

    Cilic breaks again for 4-1

    Someone looking rather ordinary tonight, not allowing the laws of tennis court geometry to be in his favor.

    Cilic US Open 2014 has appeared, and it's not like Nadal is injured or playing bad at all.

    Nadal is losing so of course he’s injured.

    Did you not get the memo? :p

    Marin's such a delight to watch when he's playing like this. Doubt he'll be able to keep it up though.

    Eh, I don't know. Rafa hasn't looked good. Some UE's, too many second serves and Cilic has done a great job of dictating play.

    This is getting rather silly.

    As close to 2014 USO Cilic as you'll get.
