I want Mcdonald to win, but Cilic should overpower him.

All of you watch Mcdonald's forehand technique,,,, it is as good as there is in ATP tour. It is almost as good as Federer forehand technique

Really close game 5-5 all.

McDonald not fazed by Cilic's power. Though Cilic isn't really power player, Berdych is more power.
Cilic is very very powerful. His shot just penetrate the court like crazy. I seen him at the US open once and he really crushes the ball.


Hall of Fame
just for once I thought Cilic had this TB, he had a perfect 4 to 0 lead, then he lost it again. I won't be surprised if he loses this match. If McD can keep up with him, Cilic likely will implode.


Do you think he's a counter puncher? It looks like that in this match. With occasional S&V when serve.
I'm not exactly sure what a counter puncher is, would that be someone like Giles Simon?

I some videos on Mack and he said he tried to model his game after Nishikori since they are similar in size and game styles. I really enjoy Mack's game, to me he seems like a solid all court player.

I like seeing him play net, he does it well.
