In a battle of the big men, Marin Cilic of Croatia won the Del Ray Open in Florida, 7-6(6), 6-7(7), 6-4. Cilic was serving for the match in the second, but the South African found a way to break, and then won the tiebreak, forcing the third set. It was a tight match, but Anderson was always playing catch-up.
Cilic has recently taken on Goran Ivanisevic as his coach, which seems to be producing the results that have long been awaiting him. One amongst a string of 1990′s celebrity players to start coaching current stars, this seems to have some legs and make some sense. Cilic is surely on a roll.
